Shutterstock announced API integration with Google Drive for Enterprise, a cloud-based file storage solution for businesses.
With the integration, Shutterstock’s Enterprise customers can sync their licensed Shutterstock creative images directly with Google Drive for Enterprise. These images can be easily accessed with Google’s collaboration tools including Gmail, Google Docs, Google Slides, Google Sites, Google Jamboard, and more.
“The integration with Google Drive for Enterprise advances our mission of democratizing Shutterstock content, making it ubiquitously available. We are committed to empowering our customers globally to work faster and smarter, and now, Shutterstock Enterprise teams can access licensed, high-quality visuals directly from Google Drive, inspiring creativity and greatly reducing time spent searching for content,” said Stan Pavlovsky, Shutterstock’s CEO.
The customers can automatically sync and centralize Shutterstock creative images rather than downloading and uploading images manually, quickly search metadata and reuse licensed content, and automatically map license information and usage rights.
Metadata tags, including image description, username, and more, enable users to search across Google tools to find previously licensed creative images for marketing, press, advertising, internal communications, and more. The integration also maps and embeds license information into each image, including license type. This helps teams track licensing and media usage across channels so they are compliant with usage rights.
In the Total Economic Impact of Google Workspace study, enterprise companies see significant success with Google Workspace, such as 171 hours saved per user per year, averaging about 21 days.
