What to look for from a digital asset management supplier

30th November 2015

The most important aspects are of course the product and after sales service.


iBase was amongst the earliest suppliers of digital asset management systems, and our first client in 1993 was the National Media Museum, now part of the Science Museum Group (SMG) which also embraces the Science Museums in London and Manchester, and the Railway Museum in York.

iBase product and services have of course evolved a good deal over more than 20 years since we started out, and we continue to develop them in line with advances in IT generally, and as a leader in the field of digital asset management and multi-media libraries specifically.

What to look for from a digital asset management supplier

Quality of products and services

Here are extracts from just a few of the bouquets received from clients –

  • The iBase DAM software met our custom requirements perfectly.
  • They have consistently met tight deadlines and responded quickly and effectively. They are a pleasure to work with and their customer support has been fabulous.
  • All this we achieved having never met face to face, across the 10,000 miles that separate the UK from New Zealand. The iBase team is professional, expert and diligent, and comes highly recommended.
  • It’s a pleasure to work with iBase. Their customer support is exceptional – a hard thing to come by these days!
