If you are considering investing in new sophisticated digital asset management (DAM) software for your company, you may be wondering how to choose the right platform for you.

With a range of options available, you can start by pinpointing your business’s specific requirements. Doing so will help you select the DAM software that is most suited for your needs.

However, there are also some universally beneficial features to look out for. When it comes to finding the best DAM, here are four essential elements a high-quality platform should provide…

1. Rigorous security measures

Keeping your digital assets well-protected is essential, particularly in this era of regular hacking and account breaches. The best DAM software will have high levels of security, which will include granting access only to those users who have been given permission. This allows businesses to control who has access to their library of assets, as well as who they can be shared with.

2. An intuitive interface

At the same time as being highly sophisticated and providing a wide range of helpful functions, the best DAM software will also be easy to use, with an interface that allows for intuitive use by your employees. If the interface is too confusing and complicated, this can lead to errors and time wastage – which runs entirely contrary to the whole point of investing in DAM in the first place.

3. Efficient search tools

One of the biggest causes of wasted employee time in the office is hunting for misplaced files. A high-quality DAM platform will prevent this from happening by providing a selection of cutting-edge search tools – from quick search options to fuzzy searches that allow your staff to find a file that may have been saved under a slightly different spelling. These highly effective search tools will save your business a great deal of time in the long run and will boost employee productivity.

4. Capable of supporting a variety of file formats

Last but not least, one of the most important qualities DAM software should offer is the ability to support a wide range of file formats and embed multiple versions of each file.

Digital assets come in an array of formats, after all – from text documents and images to video and audio files. So, your new DAM system should be able to handle any type of file with ease, and import the embedded data so each version can be easily located if need be.
