The paper provides purchasing managers tasked with buying Digital Asset Management products a framework they can use to increase their chances of finding a vendor who precisely meets their unique needs.
London, UK, 11 October 2011. Established digital asst management consultants, Daydream, have published a new paper aimed at purchasing managers who are faced with the difficult challenge of sourcing and reviewing suitable DAM systems. With the title, 'DAM System Reviews: A Buyer's Guide To Procurement Best Practices', the report includes a breakdown of the key stages of the buying process and is a distillation of Daydream's 16 years of experience in the DAM market acquired with a number of world leading organisations.
The report is organised around the main questions buyers should be asking when they purchase software systems in general and DAM specifically:
Who are the end users?
What do they really want?
What is the business case?
What will the impact on the business be?
Who are the candidate vendors?
How should we manage the selection process?
Once we have decided on a vendor, how should we proceed?
Ralph Windsor, Project Director at Daydream said "As consultants, we have been involved on both sides of the DAM procurement process. We have many years of numerous procurement situations and a body of knowledge about what works and how to apply this knowledge effectively."
Windsor continues "The Digital Asset Management market is highly confusing for those who are new to it. The number of different DAM product and service options makes it exceptionally complex for end users if they lack information on how to assess the market efficiently. We have a proven framework that places the business case for a DAM system at the core of an evaluation so buyers can ensure that their review targets the service providers who are best suited to help them."
