Digital Assets System Management for Your Cuesta Built or 3rd Party Online Catalog
Even if your online catalog was not built by Cuesta, we can help your visitors purchase and have access to your digital products and services. Of course, if your Web site is developed by Cuesta, this module is a valuable option.
Cuesta’s Digital Assets Management Module Can Handle a Variety of Formats including:
Digital products can be hosted on your Website server or a 3rd-party's server. Because they are part of the online catalog, users can find digital products using the online catalog's search and browse mechanisms. Users order digital products via the shopping cart, just as they do when ordering physical products. Digital and physical products can be combined and purchased together in the same shopping cart and are available to the customer immediately upon submission of their order.
Users who purchase digital assets or subscriptions will have access to an area on the site call “My Online Content” where they can organize their digital/subscription orders for easy viewing.
The system can also allow users to purchase electronic books in a number of proprietary formats from other Web sites. The user will be redirected to the host site to complete the purchase. Formats can include:
The Digital Assets Subscription system allows our clients to provide digital products and services as either free or fee-based subscriptions. The Website manager can set the pricing and start/end date for each type of subscription. The system will automatically notify customers who have subscriptions nearing their expiration date, giving them instructions for renewing subscriptions before they expire. Subscriptions can optionally be set to “never expire.”
The Digital Assets Management system includes a back-end Content Management System that lets Website administrators manage users’ media and subscriptions. Administrators can extend subscription dates, terminate subscriptions, and add digital assets to the users’ accounts.
The system provides Web site activity reporting that includes such information as:

Client History: Newbridge Publishing & Sundance Publishing- www.Newbridge Online, www.SundancePub.com
Newbridge and Sundance are sister companies with a shared history. In June of 2000, Sundance Publishing heard our presentation at the Association of Education Publishers conference. They were intrigued by the e-commerce system we demonstrated and sent us the RFP that had been sent to several developers. When we were awarded the contract, they told us that they loved the idea of working with developers who had extensive backgrounds in education and print catalogs, so we got to work and launched the site before the end of the year.
They were so happy with the results, that they returned to us in late 2001 and began talking to us about a new site for Newbridge Publishing. Cuesta studied the requirements and came up with a plan to help them save money but using a similar template but different design and the same database. The Newbridge site launched in 2002.
The sites have a lot of content, and would normally require two Webmasters to keep them going. But because the back-end of each system is identical, they have a single Webmistress assigned to the two sites.
