Digital Style Guides
Style guides in Creative Force are more than creative references for your production teams. They ensure consistency and enforce creative direction by intelligently managing photography requirements, post requirements, and automated file naming – and they appear automatically wherever they're needed throughout production, without the need for development or a complicated setup.
Automated File Handling
Stop wasting time and talent on administrative, manual tasks. With Creative Force, typical production headaches like outdated spreadsheets, PDF print-outs, incorrect file names, and missing shots are a thing of the past – and replaced by automated file handling.
File naming, metadata enrichment, and asset distribution: it's all taken care of by the software.
Track Progress in Real-Time
Real-time production tracking and advanced overviews keep everyone informed, from production request to final delivery. This helps you identify bottlenecks, optimize processes, and stay on track – and on budget.
Automated workflows route assets to external vendors for post-production or directly to your internal team. Detailed production overviews throughout Creative Force easily let you track and assign post-production tasks manually to optimize your output. Either way, automated QC steps, contextual instructions, and deep integration with Photoshop ensure completeness without rejections.
Not all automation is created equal
Any script can automate. Only Creative Force optimizes your entire production workflow in a way that unlocks the true powers of workflow automation.
Metadata Made Easy
Accuracy and consistency are key elements in successfully managing large databases of product information and digital assets. Creative Force both drastically improves your metadata enrichment and automates the process by populating custom metadata properties with data as it's ingested, captured, or updated throughout production.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Who can use Creative Force?
Creative Force is built to meet the needs of brands, retailers, and commercial studios engaged in high-volume content creation for eCommerce or editorial projects. If you work professionally with any of the above, chances are you'd see remarkable improvements to your workflows with Creative Force.
Every team from studio intake to styling to capture to post-production and beyond will benefit from the extensive workflow automation, increased production visibility, and many collaboration tools.
