Capture Online is a true Digital Asset Management system that allows all the digital assets and media for an entire organization to be stored centrally and then accessed and re-purposed as required. Part of these assets could be the picture library content available for e-commerce licensing or print sales – but the same system could equally-well handle marketing materials, learning packages of varying types of asset, sensitive images only accessible by internal lawyers, and many other categories of digital assets. Only those with the correct permissions would be able to see the relevant assets.

At Capture we like to think differently – and our Managed Collections division is an example of that.
Capture provides services to manage collections on behalf of clients – in other words, you can outsource your work to Capture whenever you need. We believe in the spirit of collaboration and parties helping each other to become successful – and that can mean anything from an outstretched hand during a difficult period through to ramping up resources to meet the challenges of growth.
The Capture team consists of dedicated individuals with invaluable skills and experience, and includes experts in keywording and metadata, digital workflow, image production, digital asset management and of course software development. In addition to this, the Capture team includes two trained accountants who provide invaluable advice and support. We regularly collaborate with a network of consultants and industry experts to keep in-line with industry standards, enhance our products and find smart ways of working.
Keywording and metadata
Capture Keyworder is a unique web-based keywording tool allows users to upload, caption, categorise, keyword and prepare metadata for distribution to agents, consistently and efficiently — in as many languages as they wish from anywhere in the world.
Assets are only as valuable as the metadata attached to them to make them easily retrievable – Capture Keyworder ensures the quality of keywording is consistent and speeds up the process allowing for higher productivity. Batches of images can be assigned to keyworders and workflow monitored.
Capture Keyworder can be standalone, or an integral part of Capture Online – the fully-featured web-based back-office system.
