Key Requirements for DAM Software

Key Requirements for DAM Software

The main requirements of a good DAM system include the ability to handle any file type, ease of uploading and the adding / editing of metadata. Automatic keyword tagging and facial recognition are massive aids to manpower productivity, and fast comprehensive search options are essential.

A flexible permissions structure to control access will usually be needed, downloading and sharing via email and social media are often also prime requirements. Commercial sites will use e-commerce, and the options of local or cloud-based hosting should be available.

iBase has all of these and many more.
