WE'RE A DAM GOOD COMPANY

In 2010, MediaValet built the first 100% cloud-based digital asset management system – from scratch – on Microsoft’s global cloud platform, Azure. Since then, MediaValet has led the burgeoning new cloud-based digital asset management (DAM) industry.

30 years ago
There were no digital assets to manage.
20 years ago
With the emergence of digital content, the DAM software industry was born to meet the digital asset management needs of large companies.
20 years ago
With the emergence of the Cloud and MediaValet’s help, the cloud-based digital asset management industry was forged to meet the DAM needs of all companies – large and small.

Built exclusively on Microsoft’s massive, global cloud infrastructure, consisting of twenty-three highly secure dedicated Azure data centres around the world , MediaValet is uniquely positioned to provide companies of all sizes and industries unmatched accessibility, scalability and security.

Today, with customers throughout North America and around the world, and with companies calling daily looking for a solution to their DAM challenges, MediaValet has one of those rare opportunities to forge a new path – to lead an entirely new industry – and to create something truly memorable.

What is Digital Asset Management? Digital asset management is the process of aggregating, organizing, securing and sharing digital assets. The first digital asset manage software appeared over 20 years ago when digital assets emerged and large companies needed a way to manage all the digital assets their teams and vendors were creating. With the advent of the Cloud, digital asset management has become accessible to companies of all sizes and industries. Learn More
How has the Cloud Changed Dams? Combining the Cloud and digital asset management has made digital asset management software affordable to all companies. It has also made enterprise features such as triple redundancy, geo-replication and ISO27001 certified infrastructure accessible to small and medium sized companies.

Save the Children New Zealand Selects MediaValet to Streamline Collaboration
Vancouver, BC – May 24th, 2017 – MediaValet Inc. (TSX-V:MVP), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management software, is happy to announce that Save the Children New Zealand, an international NGO that promotes children’s rights around the world, has selected MediaValet to store and manage their rapidly growing collection of digital assets and streamline collaboration with external partners.

Vancouver, BC – May 24th, 2017 – MediaValet Inc. (TSX-V:MVP), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management software, is happy to announce that Save the Children New Zealand, an international NGO that promotes children’s rights around the world, has selected MediaValet to store and manage their rapidly growing collection of digital assets and streamline collaboration with external partners.

Save the Children has 30 member organizations around the world, working to deliver change for children in around 120 countries. The first branch of Save the Children was established in New Zealand in 1947. Today, Save the Children responds to relieve the suffering of children affected by war and natural disaster, and works to make sure children are healthy, protected and have the opportunity to learn. Sharing real stories from around the world – through images, videography and case studies – is crucial to Save the Children achieving its fundraising goals. One of the biggest challenges is being able to collect, organize and manage large volumes of assets from a multitude of sources.

Before MediaValet, Save the Children used multiple local servers, popular online fileshare services and email to organize, store and share their assets. The team found this approach to managing their assets increasingly difficult as the number of photographers and assets they worked with continued to increase. Rights management, version control and tracking were particularly challenging issues for the team.

“MediaValet delivers a solution that is both technically robust and simple to use,” commented Gareth Davies, Fundraising Director at Save the Children New Zealand.  “No matter who we share assets with or allow to access MediaValet, they’ll feel at ease working with our assets. MediaValet makes day-to-day activities a breeze while giving us the peace of mind that our assets are safe and secure at all times.”

Save the Children is working towards three key goals ensuring that by 2030, no child dies from preventable causes before the age of 5, all children have the opportunity to learn to read and write and that violence against all children is no longer tolerated in safe environments.

“Productivity, ease of use and security are always top of mind when planning new features and integrations,” commented David MacLaren, founder and CEO at MediaValet. “We’re delighted to be working with Save the Children New Zealand and to have the chance to help them achieve their 2030 goal.” 

About Save the Children

Save the Children  believes every child deserves a future. Around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
