Media Asset Management

These media assets, or ‘digital assets’ are often in need of smart organisation, sorting, editing, sharing and managing. A Media Asset Management (MAM) system, also known as a ‘Digital Asset Management’ (DAM) system, is software designed to help you do this.

Why do I need Media Asset Management software?

There are many reasons why you might look for software to manage your media assets. You might want to:

  • Find your files fast.
  • Send and share large media files simply.
  • Allow multiple team members to work with the same files.
  • Avoid duplication and keep master media files intact.
  • Keep author copyright information, maps, permissions, captions, and notes attached to your media assets.
  • Track the use and history of your files.

Essentially, you want to save time and get on with the job of not managing your media assets yourself.

This is where Media Asset Management software can lighten your load.
