SLV previously worked with a well-known but outdated DAM system. With this on-premises software, only a few file formats could be used, which has led to restrictions in everyday operation. The old system could have been converted to a comprehensive media database with massively higher license costs and a very complex conversion process. However, the associated licensing model and the lack of cloud infrastructure have also led to the decision against this solution and to explore the market for new opportunities.

SLV wanted to replace the existing DAM solution with a state-of-the-art, SaaS Enterprise solution. A good integration with the selected PIM system from Akeneo was important for the luminaire manufacturer.

    Tessa DAM


Today, our self-developed TESSA DAM system ideally supports SLV in the management of digital assets (images, documents, videos, etc.). TESSA was connected to SLV's PIM system via the Akeneo connector. Today, digital assets are automatically linked to products via defined rules. In addition, a CDN was connected to TESSA in order to increase the worldwide availability of the product images.

Furthermore, it was individualized according to customer requirements. Due to special workflows and habits of the potential users of the system, the search for product images in Tessa has been specially adapted to customer requirements. An Akeneo plug-in has been installed to enable direct access from the Akeneo PIM to the existing media in Tessa. The interface of the digital Asset Management system has been adapted in such a way that possible performance problems of adjacent systems are avoided.

    I have rarely witnessed such a relaxed system introduction!
    The changeover to Tessa as the new digital asset management system went completely smoothly. I have rarely experienced such a relaxed system introduction! The thing was up and running in less than two months!
