Cumulus: Digital Asset Management Platform

Cumulus is the steward of an organization’s valuable digital content throughout its lifecycle.

Cumulus orchestrates various digital files into a cohesive hub while allowing users to access and distribute their digital content. Through Cumulus, users can collaborate to produce assets such as images, documents and videos both internally and externally. By instantly locating files, Cumulus increases productivity and reduces downtime.

Organize. Find. Share. Any file, anywhere.

Platform friendly, access from anywhere

Use Cumulus from a Mac, PC, web browser, or iOS mobile device. Run the Cumulus server on Windows, Linux or OS X. Mix or match platforms so users and IT get exactly what they want.

Smarter workflows and automation

Automate workflows and encourage collaboration using built in tools. Cumulus and Roboflow work together to automatically sync catalogs with other locations such as FTP servers and “drop folders”. Processes like queries, categorizing, and file management become routine. Annotations and email notifications make review and approvals a snap.

Icon: Search
Simply the most powerful search available

Enter keywords, tags and phrases to find any file. Search via category browsing, keywords, customizable queries, or based on associations you define. Cumulus can track asset relationships, so that all files used in a particular layout or publication can be found and viewed easily.

Version control and rights management

Manage distribution of brand assets to ensure version control and adherence to corporate guidelines. Roles and permissions ensure appropriate access and track changes to designs. On-demand image processing and editing and watermarks further support the design process.

Manage important assets with world-class metadata tools

Add files in any format, from anywhere, and make use of the built-in metadata support for IPTC, XMP, EXIF and many more. Manage existing files with complete version control and roll-back history. Metadata templates, write-backs, and support for all common metadata standards and file types give users of Cumulus a vast array of tools to use. Metadata fields can be configured to appear as familiar interface elements such as text fields, buttons, and drop-down menus.
