What clients says about Daminion

The big thing for us is that we need to have a solution on-premise and not cloud-based. Because we have a lot of photos that we have in terms of non-disclosure agreements from clients that want to be private, another important topic is functionality and interface.

I want it to have all the content, which is easy to access—software, which is good to work with, now we have it all.

One of the great things about Daminion is that all assets are referenced; we don’t need to send the files around because all the team can use Daminion, so we just refer to them, and there is no miscommunication or excessive file sharing.

Steven Yates

We had Mac machines with multiple drives running as servers which became old and affected the DAM software we were using, so we needed a better web-based solution that could easily handle all metadata.

Daminion allowed us to create a metadata tagging system that could be used to search and locate images, not just by the services but also by students they are training and by our customers.

Our services need Daminion because it helps with case searches, retrospective studies, and research.

Daminion is far superior to what we had before and gives us the ability to create a better quality structure across the board.
