Linking directly to cloud-based assets is a liberating experience for design shops reliant upon collaborative authoring, especially when designers do not share the same network. It is quite common for agencies and other organizations to work with freelance designers on InDesign projects, which normally means packaging all related assets.
With ES Connector, users are no longer forced to download files, link to local copies, or resort to cumbersome packaging, uploading, and re-linking when they want to share or update InDesign documents. Instead, they just distribute the InDesign file, and leave the assets on the DAM or Cloud. The availability of a single, secure, central source of assets saves huge amounts of time, while dramatically reducing redundant assets and the consequent risk of error.
