Updated Review of Bynder’s Orbit Platform

DAM News contributor, Spencer Harris, has recently posted an updated review of Bynder’s ‘Orbit’ DAM platform.  His first review was back in September 2017 and concluded that although Orbit was a good starting point for a cloud-based sharing platform, it didn’t quite live up to expectations and had various issues surrounding price-points, missing features (expected of an enterprise DAM system) and unwarranted claims.

The latest article keeps abreast of Bynder’s somewhat fervent development of Orbit, which has seen an average of six feature upgrades month-on-month since September last year.  Spencer provides a detailed breakdown and analysis of new features and changes, which include:

  • Uploading files from Dropbox and Google Drive
  • Changes in the user interface
  • Setting status for files
  • Basic reporting

Spencer also highlights changes in the pricing structure, what’s included at each price point, and given its ambiguous target audience, whether Orbit actually represents value for money.
