Fluxiom – Managing your Digital Assets

ss-fluxiom

Fluxiom is one of those digital asset management apps that’s been around for a while, consistently working to make organization and management of your online assets as easy as possible. And so far, they’re doing a great job of it. If you’ve never used Fluxiom before, the first thing you’ll likely notice about it (and one of its primary selling points) is its stellar interface. This is where Fluxiom stands out from other simliar asset management apps.

Fluxiom offers storage and tagging of a variety of files and documents (PDF, Photoshop, Word, images, among others). Naturally, they also offer a ton of other great features (like full text search, metadata search, resizable previews, and even personalized branding). They now have a free version, which is great news for students and others looking for more affordable alternatives. You’ll miss out on some features, of course, so if you’re looking for things like custom branding, you’ll want to upgrade.

Overall, Fluxiom makes it extraordinarily easy to share and collaborate with coworkers and clients. We recommend it highly to anyone in need of organizing and managing their digital life.
