TACTICs unique advantage is having a Workflow Engine on top of a DAM system that is completely accessible from an open API. TACTIC manages jobs, each with its own workflow that can range from simple to complex ones. Every job contains its own digital asset library that can be organized by workflow processes. Because of this, TACTIC understands the context on 'how' files are used in the workflow, and this makes it self-organizing and often does not require complex tagging nomenclature to organize assets.

Key features of TACTIC include visual workflow configuration, asset categorization, customizable branding, metadata management, access controls, version control, and document management. The projects module lets users automatically create tasks as per requirements of the job,, display ongoing activities, and build workflows for specific jobs. The built-in media library stores files, allowing users to organize assets into collections and download files in batches that can be customized based on individual demands.

TACTIC's customer portal enables organizations to define workflows, create automated business processes, add approvals, invite users to collaborate across projects, and assign tasks to staff members as per the geographic location.

Tactic orchestrate the studio pipeline and assets, makes it easier and faster to produce better contents.


Tactic is extremely powerful and flexible in modeling many different workflows. Being opensource is a big plus and make it possible to modify it at the very core. Once configured it is much more powerful then similar product and the great API make it simple to build custom tools around it.


If you are starting on your own with the opensource version it can be difficult to setup but Southpaw offers very good supports and the Tactic community is growing.

Response from Southpaw Technology

Diego, thank you for the review! We are glad you find the software useful in your operation.

A quick note around setting up open source. Yes -- setting up the open source can be difficult but -- as you mention the TACTIC community is growing (which we are very pleased with) and we also offer professional services support to help. Southpaw also offers a suite of products which are all built on TACTIC. This is especially useful if an organization does not have dev resources.

True management

Reviewed on 2020/02/10


While others do asset tracking, nothing compares to the flexibility and configuration options within Tactic. True asset tracking AND management. Don’t be fooled by the “other” off the shelf options, long term Tactic can be cohesive in any environment.


Learning curve can be high out of the gate but once configured it’s much more powerful then other solutions.

Response from Southpaw Technology

Thank you very much for the review of TACTIC. We appreciate your feedback and the review very much. The testimonial about 'true' asset tracking and management is especially helpful with all the 'noise' out there.

TACTIC is taking our systems to the next level

TACTIC is perhaps the only software solution that is both robust and
flexible enough to tackle our unique supply chain demands and
complexities. The Southpaw team takes care of its customers, and their
openness to innovation has made them an invaluable partner in building
out our green supply chain management system; which tracks, traces and
delivers products along with a carbon footprint mapping, from producer
to end consumer.


We have not experienced any issues using TACTIC.

The problems which we were seeking to improve were Document Management and Workflow Management. TACTIC solved these problems for us.


TACTIC is a highly innovative, easy-to-use, flexible technology platform which is less expensive, more adaptable and with greater functionality than other available document and workflow management systems.


There are "no cons", from our perspective.

Response from Southpaw Technology

Thank you for the review! We are seeing more and more of our clients using TACTIC for document management across business units - these can be complex documents often with many assets associated to the document.

Also, we have invested in the user experience over the last few years and we appreciate this 'easy-to-use' feedback. That was not always the case!

Excellent, worked exactly as expected and full of pleasant surprises.


Tactic has the capacity to make any process an automated process, it is flexible and scales easily, and works perfectly as an intermediary between disparate products and the end user.


There is very little to dislike, but if i am forced to pick something, it would be the availability of documentation is a little bit of a chase.. having said that, the folks at TACTIC are more than willing to provide me with answers that i am unable to find on my own.

Response from Southpaw Technology

Thank you for taking the time to review. Your input is very important to us as we continue to refine and grow our TACTIC products. Yes, the documentation is an ongoing improvement project and we intend to continue that focus.
