I came into my position without ever having used a DAM before. It took a few months for me to get the hang of the system but now I feel pretty confident I know how to. The biggest issues I have are user-friendly experiences and the slowness of getting updates. Half of my job has been assisting people in using the DAM. It's a love-hate relationship but I know there is so much more potential with the system that we aren't using yet. Once you get the hang of it, it is an amazing tool to store information and pass off to others.

Global roll-out within a large FMCG company

Reviewed 2016-01-22
Review Source: Capterra

PROS: - fast roll-out thanks to robust solution, allowing Customer adjustments (taxonomy, theming, etc.) - team and solution has good track records with global companies, so we think the same way and don't need to explain to them what our challenges are - all key functionalities are available out-of-the box, including some Advanced ones CONS: - interface for end-users is good and allows some customization/adaptation (theming), but still not the most modern or beautiful in the market. As the main users are marketers, they are in contact with agencies that can provide systems with better look & feel, even if much less robust / scalable / secure.

North Plains Telescope is a very robust platform that enables us to securely store our assets from initial creation, selection, editing, and delivery. Very easy to use and a great way to explore and find old content that had previously remained forgotten.
