Digital Asset Management Module
A digital asset management is a system of tools and functions for teams to use to store, share and manage files.
Why use a DAM module
Digital Asset Management (commonly referred to as a DAM) is an effective solution that stores, collects and enables retailers to organise and share their digital content. Some examples of elements you may find in the DAM include: images, videos and whitepapers. The Remarkable Commerce eCommerce platform can automatically optimise your digital content for various screen sizes and devices to ensure that your users get the best possible experience whilst on your site.
A retailer should leverage a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system to streamline and enhance their operations. A DAM repository ensures consistency in branding, enabling a seamless customer experience across various channels. Moreover, DAM systems facilitate collaboration among teams by providing a single source of truth for assets, reducing the risk of errors and duplications. With efficient metadata tagging and search functionalities, retailers can swiftly locate and deploy assets, accelerating time-to-market for new products and campaigns. Ultimately, a DAM system optimizes workflow, enhances brand integrity, and boosts overall operational efficiency for retailers.
How to choose the right DAM for your business
Selecting the right Digital Asset Management (DAM) platform is crucial for businesses aiming to efficiently manage and leverage their digital assets. Firstly, assess your specific needs and objectives. Consider the types of assets you'll be managing, the scale of your operations, and the level of collaboration required. Look for a platform that aligns with your business goals and channels.
Compatibility is incredibly important, so ensure that the DAM system integrates seamlessly with your existing tools and workflows, such as content management systems, and marketing automation. This integration streamlines processes and enhances overall productivity. Ideally, your DAM should sit within your eCommerce platform itself.
Scalability is another vital factor. Choose a DAM platform that can grow with your business. Evaluate the platform's ability to handle an increasing volume of assets and users as your needs evolve.
User-friendliness is essential for widespread adoption. Opt for a DAM system with an intuitive interface, easy navigation, and robust search capabilities. This ensures that all team members, regardless of technical expertise, can efficiently access and contribute to the platform.
Security features should not be overlooked either. A DAM system must prioritize the protection of sensitive digital assets. Look for platforms that offer robust access controls, encryption, and compliance with industry standards.
Important DAM module features
Centralized Asset Repository
One of the fundamental features of DAM systems is the ability to centralise all digital assets in a single, organised repository. This ensures easy access, search, and retrieval of assets. In the eCommerce context, having a centralised repository helps in maintaining consistency across various digital channels.
Our DAM module allows users to add metadata to digital assets, providing additional information such as descriptions, tags, and keywords. This metadata is crucial for efficient searching, categorisation, and filtering of assets. Detailed metadata can enhance product information, making it easier for teams to find and use assets
Version control features enable the tracking of changes made to digital assets over time. This is particularly important for eCommerce merchants where product images and other content may undergo updates. Version control ensures that users can access the latest version of an asset while also preserving previous iterations for reference or rollbacks.
eCommerce businesses often involve multiple teams and stakeholders in the content creation and publishing process. Our DAM module facilitate collaboration by providing workflow management tools. These tools help streamline the approval processes, assign tasks, and maintain visibility into the status of asset creation, review, and publication.
Remarkable Commerce's open APIs and data inflow and outflow make it easy to integrate into existing technology. With enterprise-level flexibility, you can integrate Remarkable into your current technology. Use our CMS API to push/pull digital assets in and out of your platform.
Easy to use Search function
When you have thousands, or even tens of thousands of assets, finding a specific one should be as easy as possible - we have advanced search logic to help you save time. We allow for the DAM module to be searched on, with all data fields being searchable.
