"We have all been very, very pleased with the system. It is close to ideal for our needs, and it has generated wide interest and excitement among many of our clients."James Lide, History Associates
"As a manager, I appreciate the reporting features – such as number of downloads each month, what the most popular files are, and who is uploading materials. The Third Light system's ability to not only upload and store raw video, but to also play it back, has increased the usage of our videos immeasurably. Our customer service calls have greatly decreased since implementing the Third Light server."Shawna Cronan, Digital Media Manager, Compassion International

"The flexibility to assign roles to various groups within the organisation and provide access accordingly.

"Design of the site is very contemporary and more modern compared to previous software offered by Thirdlight. Searching and refining searches in the site is much easier and much more obvious for the standard day-to-day users we have on our system. Navigation through site is great and was one of the first things our users noticed upon logging in. The pricing structure compared to rivals is very fair. We have over 300,000 assets on the site and searching is much quicker than it was on IMS which is fantastic for our users and saves a lot of time in the long-run."Jordon - Photography Coordinator - G2 Review
"We have four sites with Third Light and have worked with them for five years. Theirs is a solid and reliable system, with excellent support. Highly recommended."Paul Brown, Paul Brown Imaging

"Racingfotos.com came to Third Light in 2005 and have never looked backed since. Over the years its functionality has only increased and with it our trust in the product. Third Light has revolutionised our business, giving us far more control in the way our clients use our site. Third Light's team have been brilliant; listening and working with us to improve our business – a team we're glad to have on our side."Andy Watts, Racingfotos
You need reliable, repeatable processes to swerve delays. Work-in-progress media moves between teams via live workspaces, allowing team members to capture feedback instantly and make changes to drawings, mockups and final artwork, videos, and photos. When stored assets need updating, file syncing pushes changes directly to the cloud - just click 'Save' in your existing tools. Need to turn back time? All previous saves are stored safely for instant retrieval.
When assets have all the right details attached, their use to your company is enhanced many times over. Metadata fields can be tailored to accommodate your specific requirements, such as part numbers, internal project codes, as well as customer details and sign-offs. Documents can be attached to media to help keep them together at each stage in your workflow.
When suppliers or clients outside your company need to access your content, you can give them web links without requiring them to register. Chorus includes publishing to fast, branded microsites that incorporate a range of security controls. There's no faster way to get branded, high-performing content to your sales team and distributors, especially those working in the field.
"We’ve been using Third Light since August 2010 and the software has since been an essential tool for product managers, design managers and other marketing staff. We use a huge amount of media for product catalogues and marketing promotions, online and offline and we rely on the software to manage all of our images effectively."
Kate Griffin, Design Manager - HillarysRead case study
It's challenging to ensure changes launched to product designs, specifications and new product categories are all in the hands of your distributors and kept current - especially those problematic files on road warriors' laptops. Chorus solves this problem, with the Project Sync app, which keeps their folders perfectly in step. You can withdraw or replace old content, and push changes to everyone; they'll always have the latest product datasheets and PDFs, even if they're offline. It's an smooth way to keep everyone on the same page, no matter where they are.
Chorus supports a huge range of file types, especially images, video and audio. It also supports documents such as Microsoft Office, Adobe PDF (with text searching), vector artwork, animated GIFs and the entire Adobe Creative Suite of tools. However, you can also store other file types (ones which are unlikely to be viewable correctly without proprietary software). Those files can move in and out of Chorus, and be tagged and searched as normal. You can use our Project Sync desktop tools too, opening and saving special files directly from your workstations using Chorus as a cloud storage tool.
Chorus is a secure platform, independently verified by external assessors and subject to regular penetration testing. It's designed with security as one of its primary features, including 100% encrypted connections. Third Light's standard contracts include water-tight protection of your IPR, and we also offer an on-premises edition when IT policies mandate total isolation (even from Third Light).
Whether you prefer to host your Chorus instance with us in the cloud, or operate it on-premises, we have ready-to-go packages, and offer clear and transparent pricing. You can bring your new DAM and PIM solution online in record time.
No problem. We've written an eBook on how to create a strong business case for Third Light which provides lots of useful tips and guidance to help you get the buy-in you need in your company.
