Extensis Ships Portfolio 6 For Creative Professionals
|Portland, OR – February 25, 2002 – Extensis today announced the immediate availability of Portfolio 6 – its award-winning Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution. Portfolio 6 includes a suite of completely new features that make it the easiest and most effective way for professionals to share, organize, retrieve and distribute the digital files they create and use on a regular basis.
“Portfolio 6 flies in the face of traditional asset management,” said Joseph Schorr, senior product manager for Extensis. “While most DAM solutions are rigidly-structured and have a steep learning curve, Portfolio 6 was rebuilt from top to bottom to make sense in a creative environment. Never before has a full-featured asset management program been so easy to learn and to integrate seamlessly into an existing workflow. The free Mac OS X upgrade will make it easy for our customers to adopt Portfolio today, and continue using it without interruption as they move all their major software tools to Mac OS X later this year.”
Coming soon: Apple? Macintosh? OS X Version
“Most of our customers are professionals whose primary platform is still Mac OS 9,” said Schorr. “But as more and more key applications become available in Mac OS X, we know there’s going to be strong interest in a full migration to Mac OS X. We plan to have Portfolio for Mac OS X ready when creative professionals are really going to need it.” “FolderSync and the new Portfolio Express palette alone make Portfolio 6 a must-have upgrade,” said Avery Raskin of The Write Words, a beta-tester for Portfolio 6. “Portfolio is the must-have asset manager for every professional and I couldn’t imagine working without it.”
