ionForge has announced version 2.6 of its asset management tool Evolution. New features include instant messaging, new visual icons, an improved interface, an improved trigger manager, and more.
ionForge’s Evolution, now available as version 2.6, provides teams with an increased level of flexibility in workflow design. It is built on a platform that will enable enhanced collaboration between content creators, programmers, and management with controllable, repeatable methodologies for managing content and synchronizing deliverables.
Based on the concept of a production unit, where one unit comprises the elements and assets that together create one piece of the finished product, Evolution’s asset management system allows for the replication, reuse, branching, modification, and reconsolidation of each unit to maximize the value gained from the investment of time and resources that went into creating it.
A managed workflow modeled in Evolution paired with its automation capabilities reduces the time spent waiting on last minute code changes and wasted testing broken builds. Automated triggers associated with workflow stages can initiate consolidation, build, and distribution functions, and even generate automatic notifications.
