You can manage just about every type of asset you need to distribute. Press-ready Adobe InDesign files can be quickly modified to go directly to fulfillment without the need for costly pre-press adjustments. Or choose to download a self-printing PDF. And Microsoft Office documents and other files can be downloaded immediately.
The power of pURL’s.
Nothing gets your attention faster online than a cool piece of creative that is interactive. Our system also allows you to “customize” pURL templates on-the-fly, just as you would any print template.

Helpful questions when considering a new brand management toolset.
What should I look for most in a system?
The simplicity or usability of any system is key. The MODsocket system delivers both. But even more critical is “adoption” of any system. It doesn’t matter how simple any online tool may be, but if your field or people don’t take time to learn it and value it, your money and time is being wasted. And frankly, most of your people do not have the time. At MODsocket, we lead with a solution to create stronger adoption and teach these valuable habits so that you can rest assured, your work is being managed and deployed as you need it to be.
What's the best way to compare systems before selecting?
History. Look for the companies that have been around the longest and start there. MODsocket started in 2001, and there were only a few others like us at the time. Ask for system demos or a capabilities presentation. Try not to have more than 4 companies on your short list, it will just cloud your heads! Also, try not to make this a “bells & whistle contest.” Because in reality, it never comes down to that when these systems are used. The real proof is in the adoption rates and ongoing support of the system itself. Here is a short list of companies in our space we admire.
BEWARE! There are also plenty of “print on demand” solutions pretending to be enterprise-level software. And often, these are presented as “free” solutions. They are also typically much weaker than true DAM systems. Remember what your Dad always said, “nothing in life is free!” These systems serve to “lock companies” into a select printer and takes away your options. This is a very broad statement, but just be aware of the pitfalls of these solutions.
How long does it take to get a system up and running?
Well this answer will sound pre-packaged, but here you go….it’s actually up to you. If you can respond quickly to our needs, which are quite straight-forward and simple, we have launched systems in as little as two weeks. Having said that, the average time to launch is around 30 to 45 days. Including system training.
How are you priced?
We are a SaaS model. (Software As A Service) What that means is, we charge by the “seat” in each system. Our base price is for 100 users. Beyond that, we have pricing levels that reflect different amounts of users. On top of that, we have a “configuration fee” or “set up” fee. Again, this is based on the scope of your system and the amount of time it will take us to set it up to be ready for use. That is a one-time feel. After that, we have annual contracts based on your user base.
How often do you add features or upgrades?
Like any technology company, we learn a ton from our users, and that helps us drive improvements to our system. We are constantly adding new features and functions to the system, including optimizing current functionality to make it even better. We typically launch these improvements quarterly, and in some years, it has been bi-monthly! But know this, we are always working towards improvements to help your people perform better!
How do you engage with your clients?
When you join MODsocket, you will be assigned an account executive who manages your needs and system directly at the corporate level. This will be your day-to-day person you rely on for basically anything pertaining to your system. You also have the option of utilizing our “field consultant group” that works directly with each user to make sure they are involved, productive and actively taking advantage of the system you have put in place for them. We are the only company in this space to provide this service at this scale.
What are the top three things people use these systems for?
Actually, there is more than three, but the top three that standout are as follows; brand management and consistency, efficiency and accountability. Consistency speaks for itself, and make no doubt, this is HUGE when dealing with companies spread all over the country or world. Efficiency is driven by workforce challenges, both in the field and at the corporate office. Doing more with less and getting it right the first time. These days, this has become even more critical to corporate profitability. Lastly there is accountability. This means a few things. Accountability of your field or franchisees who often look for “excuses” to defend actions. It also means usability, to insure that these same people have the materials they paid for in a timely fashion and have been instructed on how to implement them. And lastly, the accountability internally to make sure the millions spent creating your marketing isn’t wasted upon execution. These systems help you implement locally to a higher degree of success so that the over-arching marketing strategy remains intact.
