What is a Digital Asset Manager?

A digital asset management system (or DAM) is a software solution for storing all of an organisation’s digital files assets in an ordered and discoverable way. While a document management system is focused more on word documents and PDFs, a DAM will be structured for the storage photos, audio files, video files, presentations and creative files.

A DAM makes these files available for use across your whole organisation, while also protecting your original files. This helps reduce duplication of effort as staff can reuse previously created digital assets in their projects.

SharePoint Digital Asset Manager

SharePoint is a cost-effective platform for developing DAM solutions, with the key functionality indigenous to the application. You can share and collaborate on files, download assets from any location, and control file versions, modification rights and even user access.

Organisation also gets 1TB of cloud storage with SharePoint Online free with their Microsoft 365 licences – plenty of room for even big files.

 

 

Along with a powerful search function, SharePoint also has handy solutions for finding files. Using SharePoint’s metadata functionality, files can be labelled up by key attributes. Using filter menus, files can be easily found, regardless of the folders they sit in. Say you need a 500 by 500 pixels JPEG image for your website: just filter by this metadata requirement (size and format) to find all available options in just a few clicks.

While our SharePoint Digital Asset Manager solutions typically appeal to organisations handling creative content, there’s many possible uses; we’ve even developed solutions for education providers to store graded work.

Cloud Collaboration & Sharing Wherever

Sharing files is simple with a SharePoint DAM. Rather than worrying that your files are too big to email, you can send a download link directly from SharePoint to your recipient. This makes SharePoint the perfect solution to use for sharing large audio and video files.

And should you need to work on files or presentations with other people in your organisation, SharePoint supports simultaneous file collaboration. No more emailing versions to all participants, you can all work together on your file at the same time, with version tracking of changes.

There’s no limit to the size of your DAM either: SharePoint is designed to be a scalable solution. And with SharePoint Online hosted in Microsoft’s cloud environment, your DAM can keep growing to a near limitless size.

Developed To Requirement

Our SharePoint digital asset management solutions are built to best practice principles and tailored to the requirements of organisations. So while solutions are not ‘off the shelf’ products, they can be delivered quickly and cost-effectively.

We find this works best for organisations, allowing them to tailor filtering options to their exact requirements (asset type, brand, file size, usage rights etc.). In turn this ensures their digital asset manager meets their needs.
