LinkrUI started as a best-in-class extension to Adobe applications, providing an in-app panel link between popular creative applications and the DAM or cloud storage service. Santa Cruz Software recently began offering a version of LinkrUI completely free — guaranteed version control at no cost  — which is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign and Adobe Illustrator. The premium version of LinkrUI adds compatibility for Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects and includes additional features like live filtering and Smart-Linkr, which finds and fixes broken asset links automatically. LinkrUI for Microsoft Office includes compatibility for Microsoft Word, Microsoft Powerpoint and Microsoft Excel. 

A recent survey by Santa Cruz Software found that 83% of professionals said they spend time each week finding lost assets. In fact, 11% do it hourly. Over half spend at least three hours per week managing versions and a staggering 15% are spending over six hours. LinkrUI solves this problem by automatically syncing the current asset with the DAM.

LinkrUI for Microsoft Office is now available via resellers and retail. LinkrUI for Microsoft Office costs $99/year per seat and includes compatibility for Microsoft Word, Microsoft Powerpoint and Microsoft Excel.
