ClearStory Systems Expands on Entry Level SaaS Solutions With New ActiveMedia Editions

WESTBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - ClearStory Systems, Inc., an established provider of high performance DAM solutions for the digital media supply chain, today announced new ActiveMedia Software as a Service (SaaS) packages that offer hosted DAM services that cater to a marketing organization's size. ClearStory will offer three ActiveMedia-based service plans for marketing workgroups, departments, and larger enterprise organizations, starting at $100 per user per month.

ActiveMedia Essentials offers basic marketing services for workgroups in small organizations of 5 to 10 users. ActiveMedia Professional supports larger marketing departments of 10 to 20 users and includes full access to ActiveMedia's standard work flow automation features. ActiveMedia Essentials and ActiveMedia Professional also provide fixed-fee deployment services and application training that ensure successful and rapid deployments. ActiveMedia Enterprise expands upon ActiveMedia Professional by increasing the number of users and storage, typically required by larger enterprise and global marketing organizations, and including options for full text search of document assets and enterprise-class video processing.

ClearStory's new hosted software as a service offering can be up-and-running in days rather than months and gives customers the advantage of enterprise DAM technology at an affordable price. ActiveMedia SaaS solutions make any organization's marketing operations more competitive at a fraction of the cost by helping to centralize brand content with on-demand delivery ability.

"Managing the vast amount of digital media assets is a huge and costly undertaking for many smaller businesses, which is why a simple, hosted DAM is such an attractive, timely and highly cost-effective alternative," commented Mukul Krishna, Global Program Director for Digital Media at Frost and Sullivan. Krishna added, "And for larger organizations with marketing departments that are aggressively seeking to improve efficiencies, the marketing communications supply-chain becomes ripe for strategies such as hosted DAM."

As one of the few DAM software makers to manage their own hosting center, ClearStory has proven experience deploying enterprise DAM for a range of solutions such as brand management, video management, stock footage libraries, and marketing content management for leading companies like National Geographic Channels, Smuckers, Dupont, Invista, Mannington Mills, TAC, Western Union, Raytheon and many others.
