State Of The Art Approaches to Digital Asset Management

Every modern business has an online presence and that Internet connection requires having a website. If the site is not search engine optimized it will not receive traffic. First impressions do count in cyberspace – if the website is not interesting enough to catch and hold a visitor’s attention the result will be a loss of sales. One way to brand a company and to add interest to a site is through such things as logos, videos, audios, still and stock photos and images, and other forms of content. But in a short period of time this arsenal of content adds up and if it is not properly organized in an effective digital asset management system time can be wasted in searching for, accessing, and updating content.

DPCI works to assist companies with increased speed and functionality in updating online content. An online presence is an absolute requirement of every modern day industry, corporation, business, and organization. But simply having a website does not guarantee visitors to the site. In fact, there are several things that must be in place before visitors can even find a website easily. Perhaps the most important concern is that of search engine optimization. This is a method of utilizing appropriate keywords and phrases in the correct way to get noticed by the search engines. A good ranking with search engines helps to insure that people in need of a particular service or product will find the right site.

Another important part of having a positive online presence is having interesting content that keeps visitors coming back. This is sometimes done through the use of photos, videos, audios, logos and other branding materials. As a company grows and develops new products and services the more of this digital content there is to manage. Obviously the digital asset management is a vital component of any content management system.

Depending on IT personnel to handle this responsibility is how some companies tackle the job. However, this is not the most efficient use of this personnel’s time. While it takes them away from other tasks that they are better suited for the content management system they may decide to incorporate is likely to be less effective than other options available. Any digital asset management system implemented will place more responsibility on marketing professionals and content experts and less on It personnel.

DPCI was incorporated 10 years ago. In ten years time Database Publishing Consultants, Inc.’s expert consultants have expanded their already extensive knowledge about what makes the perfect content management solutions. Whether working with a museum or a large corporation, DPCI can easily implement a digital asset management that allows even non-technical personnel to become producers.

Resources, information, and an online community relevant to the particular needs of the targeted market group will enhance visitor’s experience.

Many companies rely on their IT personnel to develop, manage and deliver all web content used. This often takes the IT professional away from other tasks that require his/her expertise.

“Ten years ago today when Ian and I established Celerant Technology, there wasn’t software like ours on the market,” stated Celerant Technology’s CFO. “We knew that the idea behind the Celerant system would serve as an excellent solution for retailers, but, like any new business, it was difficult to say if our company would be a success. Now, we can say that because we’ve worked hard over the past decade to produce a high quality product, we’ve been able to make a highly recognized name for ourselves in the retail software industry. As for the future, I believe that Celerant has the potential for continued growth and I look forward to an even greater level of success in the years to come.”

OpenCRM UK – Hosted Alternative for Salesforce.com, ACT!, Sage CRM, GoldMine

CRM Software crafters Software Add-ons based in rural North Yorkshire, UK, are delighted with the response to their recession busting marketing campaign for OpenCRM.

The company’s strong mission statement, ‘to bring corporate software technology within the reach of small to medium businesses’ seems to be the key to their success.

Marketing manager Helen Burton revealed ‘we knew we had a strong message, offering license free software, but our campaign has had the phones ringing off the hook!’.

Consumer expectation is driving the mid market business need to get online , OpenCRM’s free license solutions needed to be internet based with portal capability so customers can place and track orders, see cases and issues, download documents & information – Anytime, Anywhere access is a major boost for the previously disconnected workforce.

John Mabley of ITS describes his software as the glue between the systems – ‘I employ home teleworkers and need them to be connected to the office – OpenCRM integrated my telephony system, website and SageLine 50 accounts so that I can get a complete picture of my business day-to-day no matter where I am’.

Managing Director Graham Anderson speaking for the company said ‘all businesses whether corporate or mid market have similar core business processes, Sales & Marketing – Sales Order Processing – Invoicing – Document & Project Management,’ he added that ‘too many software implementations fail because too much money goes into the purchase and licensing of software, by supplying license free on demand software we remove this cost and our clients can put their investment where it should be: requirement analysis ; staff training; and systems integration’.

OpenCRM’s advice, based on years’ of experience, is very clear: Choose a technically sound solution with an open structure (non proprietary database & interface) that will scale and integrate; encourage user uptake – keep IT simple, go for evolution rather than revolution, invest in your people and spend on training; Get rid of as much of the IT headache as you can by having your software systems hosted, managed, updated, secured and backed-up by the professionals.
