What is a Taxonomy

Taxonomy is the classification system used to manage digital assets, making them findable and usable for distribution to your marketing content stack. A well-set-up taxonomy is critical as it is the backbone of your Bynder DAM.  Bynder does not use a folder structure, as it is not scalable or flexible. Our taxonomy provides a multi-faceted searching and filtering experience and allows users to find the same content differently. Learn how to set up your taxonomy here

It is the priority during Bynder onboarding. When an efficient taxonomy is in place, you can organize and find what you need, and your end users can search for what they need. 


Benefits of Taxonomy

  • Hierarchical Structure: Taxonomies typically follow a tree-like structure with parent (metaproperty) and child (metaproperty options) categories, allowing for clear navigation paths.
  • Controlled Vocabulary: The terms used in a taxonomy are predefined and standardized, ensuring consistency across the organization.
  • Simplified Navigation: Taxonomies simplify navigation by organizing assets into intuitive categories. They also make it easier for users to locate and retrieve content.
  • Scalability: Taxonomies can be expanded as new categories (metaproperty) and subcategories (metaproperty options) are needed, accommodating the growth of your assets.
