Extensis has been awarded a patent for digital-asset management technology.

Extensis, a division of Celartem, has been awarded a patent for its popular Express Palette feature within Portfolio, its leading digital-asset management solution. The Express Palette is a floating application that brings the digital library of files within Portfolio directly into the user's existing workflow, providing instant search and drag-and-drop access to files from anywhere on the user's system.
Celartem CEO Carlos Domingo said: "We understand how vital it is for our customers to have transparent access to their files. The Express Palette allows access to files stored anywhere on the network through seamless integration with the creative professional's workspace: whether that be Adobe's Creative Suite, QuarkXPress or other applications."
