DAM is all about saving time, right?

1 Comment

How much time does digital asset management save you?

A Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution can reduce overheads, increase revenue, boost staff productivity and generally make your life easier, most people use DAM because it saves them time. In a paper by Ron Roszkiewicz, it is estimated that the average asset end user in an organisation spends 15.5 days out of 200 searching for files.

According to a survey of Portfolio Server users by Street Smart, DAM users saved, on average, 2.69 hours each week. Some users even saving more than 10 hours each week!

If you think of an employee salary (including wages, benefits, and leave) of $80,000 a year or $38 an hour, in this case DAM is saving $5,315.44 per user every year. If you add that up across multiple users in your organisation, this can result in significant savings. Especially when an average of $8,200 per person is spent on asset management activities.
