Hosted DAM is like an ATM

by ,

Guest Blog Post from Ben Johnsen, Widen Sales Representative

Describing a hosted Digital Asset Management solution is sometimes confusing, but with using similarities with a more common item, learning about a DAM can be easily to understand, and ultimately, can help paint a picture and show them why their company may need a hosted DAM.
A hosted DAM solution is much like ATM’s to Banks.  Now, people can do all of their banking without ever going to the actual bank.  The can deposit, withdrawal, check balances and transfer money all from an ATM, where ever they are.  Similar, a person working for a creative team, only needs a computer and the internet to access their departments hosted DAM.  Once in the secure site, they can upload, organize, search, convert and download from any location in the world.
Hopefully this paints a picture on the very basic idea on how a Hosted DAM solution works.  Now, as you understand DAM, I hope you can see the importance and competitive advantage to having a hosted DAM solution.
