Frequently asked questions about our DAM software

There are different types of DAM software. These are brand asset management systems, which focus on marketing and sales to organize marketing materials such as product images and logos. Library asset management systems to ensure the storage and retrieval of large data assets that only change seldomly. Production asset management systems that focus on managing the storage, organization and revision control of media that change frequently. And the digital supply chain services that focus on the distribution of content to digital retailers.

Regardless if you build up your first DAM system or replace an existing system you should pay attention to:

1. Metadata
Make sure your DAM provides automated metadata extraction and management functionality. This speeds up processes and organizes files accurately. Metadata improves search speed, as users search for specific terms and find files more easily.

2. Integration with other systems
Any enterprise DAM system should provide an API that enables system integration, from systems like Web CMS to PIM, eCommerce, CRM, etc.

3. Security 
There are many risks associated with sensitive digital content. Make sure that the information is stored in a secure data center and that the encryption process keeps your files as secure as possible.

4. DAM Workflows
Also make sure that you choose a DAM that supports your workflow. Consider whether you need to support formal and/or informal workflows between different people and groups within the organization. DAM workflows often come into play in the production of assets and in approval processes.

5. Permissions
Consider not only who can see which assets, but also what each user can do with them. Make sure your DAM has a user-friendly interface and that administrators can set permissions easily. The DAM should reflect a simple rights management process so that administrators do not need assistance in setting permissions.

6. Access to mobile devices 
Make sure your DAM provides access to mobile devices. This includes smartphones, tablets and laptops. This prevents downtime for team members who are geographically limited. Often, digital assets need to be available with the latest version, for example, a customer presentation on site. A good DAM system should be able to routinely deliver this capability.

7. Integrated search
The assets in a digital asset management system are only useful if you can find them. Strong DAM systems have many search filters. It's a good idea to use a DAM that provides at least one type of filter so that at least a search can be made for authors, dates, titles and file types. 

Any DAM should at least contain the following functions:

  • Bulk import of assets

  • Scalable for large amount of files

  • Export assets into other systems

  • Embed assets in other applications

  • Organisation of assets with tags, collections, hierarchical structures, etc.

  • Fast search for files by metadata, file names, etc.

  • Easy to use and beautiful user interface

  • Powerful permissions, user roles and workflows

  • Archiving and versioning of files

  • Provision of a web portal where agencies, journalists, partners and employees of a company can download current images, advertising material etc. themselves
