THE CHALLENGE:
GLOBAL ASSET & COPYRIGHTS MANAGEMENT

Silhouette International has been a global leader in the premium eyewear segment since 1964 and has revolutionised the eyewear industry from the very beginning. In 2017, Silhouette International evolved into a full-range supplier of lenses and frames, and optical lenses are now also manufactured to the highest technical standards at its headquarters in Linz. With 13 of its own international subsidiaries, a regional office in Dubai and a network of 22,000 opticians, Silhouette International operates in over 100 countries worldwide. Export accounts for 95% of its production.

With increasing digitalisation, Silhouette International was quick to recognise the benefits of a content supply chain platform. The aim was to support the company‘s digital transformation and ensure copyright compliance.

Up to 60,000 users around the globe are be able to access around 300,000 digital assets. Due to the different time zones, the sales companies, distributors, agencies and opticians should have access to content selected for them via self-service portals.

“With CELUM as our all-round service platform for digital data, we serve our stakeholders optimally far beyond the normal scope and always have the time-limited copyrights automatically in view.”

SINCE 2004
Customer

Intuitive Self-Service Center for Optician Partners

Optician partners worldwide have access to the latest materials for professional advice and sales support of end customers on a 24/7 basis. In addition, the back office is on hand to provide advice as usual.

Copyrights

The rights of image materials are usually available only for a certain period of time. Users must accept copyright agreement in order to download assets. Ten days before the expiration of the copyrights, a notification is sent to the user via e-mail. It lists all downloaded materials that may no longer be used after the expiration of the copyrights and must be removed. The content is then automatically removed from CELUM.

Reporting

Silhouette International knows which stakeholders, downloaded which materials and are thus used in the markets and in the optical stores. This enables them to meet the needs of their customers even better.
