What is Digital Asset Management?

Digital Asset Management, or DAM, is a label widely used to describe software that centralizes digital content. Most businesses are collecting photos, videos, logos, branding materials and artwork. Your media library is growing all the time, but needs to be stored in a central system to be managed successfully.

Trying to manage all these files without the help of a central library is one of the most frustrating and inefficient things you have to deal with. You're constantly investing time and money trying to find old content, or struggling to control the use of current files around your organization.

What you really want is to be able to search, share, and re-use your media via an online environment that you control and manage, without relying on public cloud sharing tools.

If you could do this your organization would be able to make much better use of your time. Not only that, your job would be so much more enjoyable.

Companies around the world work with us, ranging from small businesses and charities to some of the most famous global brands. Please have a look at our case studies to see how successfully Third Light helps bring your digital media together.
