The company focuses on the enterprise market and brand owners as well as the government market.
The solution has very strong multilingual support. The company's enterprise digital asset management solution, celum IMAGINE, has connectivity to Microsoft SharePoint and SAP and strong integration with a host of other third party applications such as Adobe InDesign – making it an easily integrable solution within an enterprise’s IT infrastructure.
