Features Comparison

Both HIVO and Box offer a range of features that can help you manage your digital assets. However, HIVO offers some unique features that are not available with Box. For example, HIVO allows you to manage your digital assets across multiple platforms, including social media, email, and websites. This makes it easier to track your assets and ensure that they are being used effectively.

HIVO also offers advanced search functionality, which can help you quickly locate specific assets based on keywords or other criteria. This can save you time and effort when searching for specific files. A Box alternative like HIVO, on the other hand, offers a more streamlined approach to digital asset management. It focuses primarily on file storage and sharing, making it a good choice for businesses that need a simple and easy-to-use solution.

"   The staff are getting a lot of daily use out of HIVO (and no longer requesting photos from me anymore), so the platform has been a great success!   "
Creative Director, City Renewal Authority
"   Adopting the HIVO DAM platform has been a true benefit for our organisation. The process of categorising, storing and sharing assets through HIVO has created efficiencies and time savings for staff, and ensures the quality of our assets. An added bonus is the streamlined creator upload option – this has saved us so much time when compared to our previous processes.   "
Creative Director, City Renewal Authority
"   The HIVO DAM was very well received from all partners and sponsors that accessed the HIVO system daily in the lead up and during the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. Made life so much easier!  "
Senior Manager, Digital Marketing
"   The ability to talk to our marketing team in real time is invaluable. Rather than going back and forth via email; the ability to mark and tag our creative team in posts on artwork, videos and documents allows us to quickly turnaround content and any marketing collateral we need.   "
Owner of Revo Fitness
"   Working with HIVO allowed us to streamline a rapidly growing house of brands under one roof and allow collaboration and visibility from management and marketing through to the sales and field team. We swiftly onboarded and created customised task management for creating and approving artwork to suit our internal processes. The proximity of workflow to assets is crucial for fast and on-brand distribution.  "
