How you can benefit from digital asset management?
Simply stated: a Digital Asset Management System (DAM) is your company’s software solution to asset workflow and production–preserving, cataloging, sharing, and storing the digital assets your company uses on a day-to-day basis. Digital assets are the photo, document, video, music, and other media formats your company uses for marketing or other promotional methods. These files are generated at an enormous rate as your employees work, so making sure you have an efficient asset workflow and proper cataloging methodology is critical to the success of your business.
Who needs a DAM System?
Creatives: Through our LAGO Layout InDesign plugin, your designers, photographers, videographers, and art directors can utilize one system to manage their digital assets enabling a more efficient and collaborative workflow between your creative, marketing, and sales teams. Your creatives can now focus on what they do best: creating compelling content instead of searching for linked images or fulfilling a request for assets to be sent over. Additionally, using incorrect or expired (or otherwise restricted) images becomes a thing of the past.
Marketing: Marketing professionals spend untold hours searching for images, or give up and create new images to use in print and digital campaigns. With a central repository of assets, marketers can search for the content they need for their campaigns without having to involve the creative team. They can easily share these assets with outside collaborators, retailers, and agencies to increase the capacity of their team and ensure your brand’s materials are properly distributed.
