The Challenge: Streamlining Digital Assets for Enhanced Efficiency

AgriFutures Australia, a statutory corporation fueled by the federal government's commitment to agricultural excellence, has long been at the forefront of research and development (R&D) for established industries. Its efforts to nurture new industries, attract future rural leaders, and address sector-critical issues have been commendable. However, the organization faced a significant challenge: managing its vast array of digital communications, research publications, and corporate collateral in a way that supports both internal and external stakeholder workflows efficiently.

HIVO's Solution: A Centralized Digital Asset Management Platform

Enter HIVO, with its AI-enabled, cloud-based platform, poised to revolutionize how AgriFutures manages its digital assets. Selected through a competitive tender process, HIVO was tasked with leading AgriFutures through the meticulous planning, development, coordination, and execution of a comprehensive digital asset management strategy.

HIVO's platform offered AgriFutures a much-needed central source of truth for all its digital assets, ensuring lightning-fast discoverability through cutting-edge search engine functionality and an extensive asset library. This integration was set to streamline content management across various platforms, including Microsoft SharePoint, Adobe Creative Cloud, and WordPress, thereby uniting staff and teams across communications, management, and operations.

The Impact: Uniting Teams and Reducing Costs

The implementation of HIVO's digital asset management system has been a game-changer for AgriFutures. By significantly reducing the time spent creating, finding, and sharing digital assets, the organization has united its staff and communications teams like never before. This unity has led to a reduction in the total cost of ownership of assets, an increase in content output, and ensured that more intellectual property and workflow information created by staff is retained throughout the entire content creation lifecycle.

Looking Ahead: A Future of Innovation and Growth

As AgriFutures continues to harness and contribute to the continual improvement of HIVO's platform, the future looks promising. The partnership is set to redefine the agricultural sector's approach to digital asset management, paving the way for increased efficiency, innovation, and growth. With HIVO's assistance in defining and standardizing unique metadata, folder structures, and workflows, AgriFutures is well-equipped to adapt to the digital landscape's ever-changing demands, ensuring that Australian agriculture remains at the cutting edge of technology and research.

Conclusion: A Testament to Australian Innovation

The success story of AgriFutures Australia and HIVO is a testament to the power of digital transformation and the pivotal role of local technology in advancing Australia's agricultural sector. As this partnership continues to flourish, it stands as a beacon of innovation, efficiency, and collaboration, promising a brighter, more technologically advanced future for Australian agriculture.
