Media is essential for success

Pictures and videos increase the impact of everything your business creates, whether it's image-rich brochures and presentations, glossy magazines, bold Websites, or social-network posts. Every picture is worth a thousand words.  And so, these days, every company must be a media company.

Transparency, speed and responsiveness

Want more than 15 minutes of fame? The latest ideas and trends only hold people momentarily before they're on to the next. If you can react quickly to relevant facts and events, you can take over their interpretation and use news to effectively target your markets.

Web-based media platform

What if there was one place where all your company’s media files – past, present, and future – were easily accessible to all? Doesn't matter if it's the most recent photo shoot, the last marketing campaign, or images purchased from a third party. Bring your internal archives, sources, and content partners under one roof with picturemaxx. You'll save time and money and gain efficiency. Guaranteed.

Working like a media company

picturemaxx has been working for media companies of all sizes for over 30 years and knows exactly what is important in the procurement, processing and distribution of images, videos and other media assets. Just use these experiences, adapted individually to the way of working in your company.

Fast and easy approach

The introduction of Digital Asset Management with picturemaxx is not an IT project, but a solution for your business success. Numerous standardized templates and processes form the basis for your individual solution. Consulting and training by our team of experts is included.

    INF Photo/ INF Germany GmbH Several built-in statistics functions deliver important insights into customer behaviour, which can be used for targeted marketing.... Ann-Catherine Gerber Sales Manager

    Ann-Catherine Gerber Sales Manager INF Photo/ INF Germany GmbH

    When INF Germany was founded at the end of 2012, an efficient workflow in order to reduce cost and administration was important to us. Due to my longterm-experience in the business I was very familiar with the photo industry market. We chose BACKSTAGE since we could not find any real alternatives for a webbased and at the same time affordable solution.
    In the fast-moving celebrity business, speed, distribution and availability of images at high quality in my-picturemaxx are crucial. BACKSTAGE is perfectly able to master this mixture of requirements. Several built-in statistics functions deliver important insights into customer behaviour, which can be used for targeted marketing.

    o be found among the flood of images is what counts for our customers. For photo editors, looking to visualize a current topic, picturemaxx is often the first point of contact. Here they can find our customers' pr-images, all labelled by the abbreviation "obs", among all other editorial content. This increases the probability of usage significantly, especially since they can be used free of charge. Thus, all companies, political institutions, associations and NGOs using news aktuell to distribute their pr-images will automatically be noticed by the image buyers. This pleases our customers and serves the photo editors at the same time.

    Mark-Oliver Multhaup Managing Director FUNKE Digital and Head of FotoPool FUNKE Mediengruppe

    Good journalism will always be in demand. Only today people want to consume imformation through the different media sources and without a second thought. In addition, content needs relevance. Therefore the FUNKE Media Group focuses on regional aspects. Accordingly, our own agency WAZ FotoPool which was founded in 2009, specializes in the Ruhr and Rhine-Westphalia area. As our own photo editors work with my-picturemaxx, it was only natural to distribute the WAZ FotoPool images through the same system. Today our FotoPool is a nationwide fixed size, regarding images from the Ruhr region. Both, marketing and management of our images are carried out most efficiently by BACKSTAGE.

    Stephan Bock Owner Westend61 GmbH

    We always try to respond as quickly as possible to market developments as well as customer requirements. Currently mobile photography is a big issue. As the first german picture agency we therefore created a collection which solely consists of smartphone images: the SMART Collection. This collection complements the content of Westend61 - in the current trend - with images that are usually taken spontaneously and are implemented creatively through various apps and filters.

    With our fresh, creative imagery we primarily aim to reach advertising agencies, graphic designers and editors. Therefore, since 2005, we have been offering our images via the media search engine my-picturemaxx. Thus, from the very beginning we had access to a wide range of image buyers. We especially appreciate that picturemaxx constantly acquires new potential image buyers for the platform. Another strong point is the distribution of images to business partners around the world, through our BACKSTAGE system. The picturemaxx software is best suited for this purpose.

    As a picture agency focusing on topics in the fields of health and geography we collaborate with many specialized photographers as well as partner agencies around the world.

Today, the content of partners agencies can easily be accessed through dynamic interfaces, offered by picturemaxx.
    This also works vice versa. Media files from Your Photo Today can be marketed through portals or other partner agencies, simply with a couple of mouse clicks.
