Microsoft Office Connector

Keeping up with the never-ending demand for content and ensuring the versions are always up to date can be a challenge for any creative team. The Microsoft Office connector allows users to search your Bynder DAM from within Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. By using your DAM as the source for all brand and creative content, your design team can focus on content creation instead of version management.
