Edith Cowan College - Case Study

About Edith Cowan College:

Edith Cowan College (ECC) is a well-known Australian educational institution. ECC were facing a challenge of managing their digital assets, which includes documents, images, brand assets and videos. They needed a solution that would help them streamline their digital asset management process and improve collaboration among staff.

To address these challenges, ECC decided to implement HIVO’s digital asset management software, which is specifically built for educational institutions. HIVO is a cloud-based software that provides a centralized platform for storing, organizing, and sharing digital assets. ECC began using HIVO in 2020, and since then, they have realized the following benefits set out below.

Improved Collaboration

HIVO has enabled ECC staff to collaborate more effectively on projects that require the use of digital assets. The software's collaboration features, such as commenting and versioning, have made it easier for staff to work together, even when they are not physically present in the same location.

For example, when ECC was developing a new course brochure, the marketing team used HIVO to store and organize all the digital assets needed for the project. The team was able to share the assets with the design team, who then used HIVO to create the brochure. The marketing team could review the brochure and make comments directly in HIVO, and the design team could make revisions and keep track of all the versions of the brochure.

Streamlined Asset Retrieval

HIVO has made it easier for ECC staff to retrieve the digital assets they need. The software's search function is powerful and easy to use, allowing staff to quickly find the asset they are looking for.

For example, when an instructor needed an image for a PowerPoint presentation, they could quickly search for and retrieve the image from HIVO. Previously, this process would have taken much longer, as the instructor would have had to search through various folders on their computer to find the image.

Improved Asset Security

HIVO has improved ECC's digital asset security by providing a secure and centralized platform for storing assets. With HIVO, ECC can control who has access to their digital assets and ensure that sensitive assets are not accidentally shared or accessed by unauthorized personnel.

For example, when ECC was creating a new student portal, they used HIVO to store the assets needed for the project. They were able to give access to only the relevant staff members and ensure that sensitive assets, such as student data, were not accidentally shared.

Overall, HIVO has been a valuable asset for ECC, enabling them to streamline their digital asset management process, improve collaboration among staff, and enhance asset retrieval and security. With HIVO, ECC can focus on their core mission of providing high-quality education and training to their students.
