THE CHALLENGE:
Cooperate effectively worldwide

The voestalpine Group is represented by 500 affiliates in 50 countries on 5 continents and employs around 49,000 people. This global reach proved to be a considerable challenge for the Group when it came to using and exchanging digital assets. The increasing demand for high-quality images and video content, stemming from the Group’s own growth as well as the rising significance of new media, produced an influx of new assets.

Due to the lack of a single worldwide organization, searching for the right materials was a tedious task. Finding existing photos and understanding license models was often times more difficult than just buying or producing new ones. Therefore, the voestalpine Group needed to reassess its global processes concerning the storage and exchange of digital assets to minimize costs and enable their teams to work efficiently with its resources.

The innovative management of our digital assets has proven to be a real source of added value within our company-wide cooperation. For many years we have found a reliable partner in CELUM.
