What do you get with each Brand
Once you add a brand, and associate Assets with a Brand, you can add downloadable Brand Guidelines and display a Brand Page for each brand.
Brand Guidelines can be auto-attached to Downloads and Sends.
A Brand Page enables you to, introduce your brand or talk about your brand guidelines, as well as provide a simple link to
download your Brand Guidelines.
What's the difference between Admin Users and Portal Users
An Admin User has access to the Brandkit Admin interface (as well as the Portal) and depending on role configuration
can upload, edit, tag, approve and archive assets, manage users, view reports, manage requests and notifications as well
as Download, Share, Send and Email users.
An Admin User would typically be an internal marketing staffer, who is uploading, curating or editing content and sometimes
a external content creator, agency partner, etc.
Think of Admins as your team made up of Managers, Curators, Editors and Contributors.
A fee is charged for each Admin User.
A Portal User has access to the Portal only, and is a Consumer of assets. They can find, download and share
the assets from the portal based on allocated role. Typically this would include customers, distributors, sales or front-line
staff, partners, suppliers, sponsors, etc.
Can we setup different User Roles with different capabilities?
Yes, it's possible for us to to configure multiple custom User Roles for you. For example: You might have an Admin and an Editor Role within Admin Users and a Standard User in Portal Users, and a Staff role
within Portal Users.
If you go with the defaults you get 3 standard roles, Guest (public), Standard User (a Portal User) and Admin (an App User).
What is the Portal and what are Portal Users?
Brandkit is a platform made up of two interfaces.
The Admin interface is where your users with Admin access, manage users and upload content such images, video, graphics and
other visual assets, etc.
The Portal is the public facing self-service website where Portal Users can register, login, search, view and download (or
optionally Request) those assets.
Can I change my plan?
Absolutely. You can change your Plan, add or remove optional Plan Upgrades, Add or remove Premium Features or do more customisation,
at any time.
What do you mean by Capacity?
When you store assets, the idea is that many of those assets will be downloaded or shared. Typically some assets are more popular
and are downloaded/shared more often. In our experience for most customers a 1:1 relationship between Storage to Traffic
So when buy a plan with 100GB of Capacity, you'll get 100GB of storage and we'll we match that with 100GB of traffic.
If you use more, overages will apply.
* If you think you might have high traffic volumes (e.g. lots of video content) you might want to get a custom plan quote/proposal.
What are Overages?
Your Plan will have a nominated volume of Users and Capacity. At the end of each calendar month we check
your account stats and if you have exceeded your nominated volumes, we'll bill you any applicable overages, at the following
- Overage per Admin user: US$25/mth
- Overage per GB Storage/Traffic: US$1/mth
Generally we won't block you from doing anything when you reach your plan limits, instead we'll let you know whenever you reach
your plan limits, so you can then decide whether to keep your current plan and pay the overages, upgrade your plan or reduce
What ABOUT Customisation?
With Standard and Pro plans you can configure your account with minimal branding (e.g. a Nav logo Account Name, etc.), yourself at no additional cost.
You'll need the skills to be able to create correctly sized images in the right formats using a creative software such as Photoshop.
However, most accounts will work better with some level of customisation, and while it's optional, we recommend it for all accounts. Customisations are made for you by Brandkit staff.
