You can only equate DAM with file sharing platforms for so long before you run into serious trouble. The value of DAM software is about more than finding and sending your assets — it’s about protecting and advancing your brand. A task like that takes more than shared folders.
- Streamline processes – The Media Collective makes responding to asset requests, delivering video files, applying metadata and other tasks a breeze, when they’re otherwise slow and clumsy. Focus your energies on productive tasks, reducing costs, repurposing time and capitalizing on your people’s real talents.
- It’s cooler in the cloud – Because our offering is software as a service DAM, you can cut out hardware, upgrade, IT and maintenance costs. Make sure your system is running as it should, and always on the cutting edge.
- Speed up time-to-market – The sooner you get things done on the DAM side, the sooner your assets are out there being put to use by your sales force, marketing partners and others. Your assets drive in revenue.
- Get the service you deserve – Why settle for a vendor when you can have a partner? We genuinely care about your success.
