Barcode Scanning

Whether using existing sample barcodes or creating new ones in Creative Force, barcodes are an essential tool for organizing, tracking, and managing the samples flowing through your studio.

Samples are checked in and out with a standard handheld scanner or a smartphone. Every scan is associated with a location, so you'll immediately be able to follow samples as they move around the studio and get total visibility into production progress.

Designed to Handle Volume

Whether shooting 100 or 100,000 samples, your team will be able to handle the volume while staying organized.

In Creative Force, sample management is built into every workflow. Barcodes enable team members to track every sample throughout the entire production process, from check-in to on-set to storage and more. Plus stakeholders get full visibility with real-time updates.

Locations & Containers

Organize your studio into unlimited locations and sublocations (for example, receiving rack, styling, small cove, or outbound) for detailed tracking. Use virtual containers to track, move, and check-in samples in bulk.

Creative Force captures all relevant data and allows you to verify or edit the information on-the-fly, avoiding costly, time-consuming mistakes downstream.

You'll even have a detailed, time-stamped event log for each sample, making it easy to identify any bottlenecks in your studio.

How does Creative Force work?

To simplify things a bit, Creative Force enables and elevates what we call flow production – a collaborative and continuous way of producing content at scale, where assets are moved individually through the many stages of production, as soon as they're ready.

This is in contrast to traditional batch production, where a single production stage is completed for all assets before they advance to the next step. Flow production eliminates bottlenecks and hold-ups, and Creative Force supercharges that concept with automation, metadata enrichment, integrated review tools, and so much more.

How is Creative Force different?

Let's first differentiate between studio software and studio management software. Creative Force is studio management software that optimizes the processes around specific areas of studio operations, like sample management or post-production management – in some cases by integrating directly with studio software your team uses daily, such as Capture One or Photoshop.

Other studio software solutions do a fine job of solving problems within particular, well-defined areas of operation. But only Creative Force takes a holistic approach to studio operations and provides the tools to effectively increase productivity and visibility across the entire content creation process.
