... Stuart Ford, Veolia Water Australia
The support we've received from the team at Third Light has been consistently excellent. They were always on hand to answer queries as we started using IMS, and they've continued to offer timely and insightful advice as we discover new opportunities for using the software.
... Nicky Dee, Founder, Leap Local
Third Light's team have been a great source of advice and support to Leap Local, including offering us surplus equipment to really go the extra mile. Not only is Third Light IMS a great product, the company's support and attention to us as a client has been second to none.

Using Third Light has given us a way to distribute pictures and keep them centrally managed. We are able to offer galleries after events or launches, which we can share with our guests, PR companies and other relevant contacts. We've got photos from events since 2000, and it's fantastic having that available so easily.
... Toronto Star Newspapers Limited
Since the launch of our new Toronto Star Photo Page Sales site, we have received many words of appreciation from our clients. They praise the site's clean and attractive appearance, and its user-friendliness.
... Jocelyn Poulton, Head of Development, Trinity Hall (Cambridge University)
We were struggling to keep track of all the new images and associated copyright details. We are especially impressed by the ease with which we can now search for images quickly using simple keywords. We are also finding the interface for tracking image usage very helpful.
Solutions for valued added resellers and technical integrators
Third Light offers a companion product to IMS called the Third Light Manager, which makes it simple to install more than one Third Light site on the same hardware. The underlying equipment and network connections can be shared by multiple clients, each with their own IMS site.
We offer reseller packages specifically designed for agencies to provide value added services for clients requiring a managed, hosted media library. The agency, ISP or other reseller environment is managed centrally and digital asset management systems are supplied to clients individually.
All Third Light Enterprise servers come with the option to activate the IMS Manager. Whether simply to add flexibility, or to generate a new channel of sales, the Manager offers an instantaneous solution for deploying additional digital media libraries on your hardware.
PR, Sales or Marketing Agencies and Web Designers wishing to extend their services portfolio with a digital media library product can use IMS to provide a polished solution – and one which can be deployed immediately with no technical overheads. Each client can have their own, personalised digital media library with the opportunity for the agency to add value either managing or customising the service.
Organisations can divide IMS into territories with the cost-saving advantage of centralised networking and hardware management. By providing regional sub-sites with independent user groups, distinct parts of your organisation can enjoy the full benefits of Third Light IMS with a reduced cost. IMS also removes inefficiencies via its intuitive approach to workflow and industry standards for keywording, thus benefiting the entire organisation whenever media is exchanged.
Third Light IMS provides an advanced solution for digital asset management, and is ideally suited for integrators and software developers to build into packaged solutions such as CMS software, or as a feature-rich replacement for other media management tools. The IMS Manager makes it easy to embed IMS into mid- to high-end solutions for multiple clients, at a dramatically lower cost than custom development.
Differentiated packages are used to attract business customers, who seek specialised solutions far beyond commodity hosting. Using Third Light IMS solves the very common requirement for digital media management, and enables ISPs to sell this specialist software to discriminating, high value clients. Third Light software is designed to be scaled up to ISP levels, with mature and documented functionality that is ready to use.
Third Light IMS is particularly attractive in a reseller environment, not only because of its functionality and mature code base, but also because of the availability of the Manager (and associated licencing flexibility). To discuss resale of IMS licences please please contact us.
