How does designers use Digital Assets Management?
DAM systems can be used in a wide variety of ways to support a design process, both by easing the administrative process and tasks, but also as a shopping window to showcase your latest designs to you colleagues or customers.
A Digital Asset Management offers the ability to send your materials as a link that offers the recipient access to a limited area of your platform. In that way you will be able to show relevant content to the relevant people. Imagine how you could share files with colleagues or business partners by uploading content to a Digital Asset Management system, adding metadata and tags to your file, and then either sending a link or sharing the folder to the relevant collaborators. That easy!
Dropbox, FTP, YouSendIt, etc.??
Have you experienced colleagues and workplaces where everyone kept their own system for file storage and handling? These kinds of systems only do one thing – Creates chaos! When a colleague goes on maternity leave or becomes sick no one is able to find his or her files anywhere, resulting in even more work for everyone.
To optimize processes, save time and leave more time for your important tasks a Digital Asset Management system will handle most of your administrative job for you. Designs are very valuable! You have spent a lot of time, energy and resources creating them, that’s why a Digital Asset Management system will keep your assets safe, in a password protected area – with your files only!
