A look at how Brightspot's products work and solve the content challenges for its customers.

What’s the business pain point we address?
Every second, new digital assets are being created, modified and saved. Companies need to access these assets—images, videos and files of all kinds—to create content and communicate with their internal and external audiences. The sheer volume is staggering, and even the most organized teams struggle to maintain an effective digital filing system that scales to meet the priorities of the organization.

How does Brightspot approach this problem?
Brightspot’s mission is to transform the way business content and digital experiences are created and delivered—and that means simplifying and enabling the most efficient way for organizations to access, store, share and manage their valuable digital assets. In fact, a good digital asset management solution is central to the marketing tech stack.

Brightspot Media Desk is powered by federated search, a custom front-end and artificial intelligence to provide the fastest and best user experience possible.
