How do I choose the right Digital Asset Management (DAM) System?

Help, I’m crushed! My media is spread all over and I can’t get out!

This is my review. So you are running a business. A ton of your digital media is spread all over different folders, computers, storage systems. We’ve all been there. Only a few of us came back unscathed, though.

You want to find your file(s) fast, preferably yesterday. You want to not just crawl from underneath your huge digital media pile a day later, exhausted and beat. Oh no, sir/ma’am. You deserve to actually rule the darn thing. To power-find any file at the moment’s notice without even breaking a sweat. Yeah, uber file organization. That’s what you want.

I know I wanted that ease of digital file organization, anyway.

So how did I achieve that? By managing my digital media, of course. There are DAM (Digital Asset Management) systems out there designed to do just that. In reality, though, only some of them can help you… and some others may complicate your life even further.

The hunt for a file organization tool

How can you tell a good DAM from a bad DAM? One way is to use G2.com, a major peer-to-peer review site. G2 saves you months of doing your own research, trials, and errors.

What’s in it for you? Quality solutions found quickly. G2 is not a DAM, but it helps you to speedily find a DAM that suits your business, by looking at the peer reviews.

I found Daminion that way.

Daminion is already honoured as a High Performer in 2020 on G2 and is a recipient of the Top 50 Software badge in the Small Business category since the year 2016.

G2’s rating of Daminion (it’s a wordplay on DAM and dominion, get it?) is high, it gets 4.5 stars on 149 reviews. Only three people ever gave Daminion less than a 4-star review, by the way. In many cases, users who rated Daminion with less than 5 stars simply didn’t know the feature existed in Daminion that actually does exactly what they want to achieve. Whoops.

I wholeheartedly recommend Daminion as your DAM, based on my own experience with this superb software. Trust me, I work for Daminion. …What? This is not enough for you? Fine, look at the G2 ratings and reviews, sheesh! [link to Daminion reviews on G2]

The idea is to find the best DAM out there that will help you. Daminion gets not just the near-5-star rating and tons of positive reviews by real users. It also gets G2’s proprietary aggregated business score, graphically represented by The Grid.
