Edward Smith, writing on the Extensis DAM Learning Centre discusses 3 benefits of using Digital Asset Management consultants to help with a DAM system implementation project:
- The delivery process is composed of 3 elements: people, processes, and technology. The technology is only one of these and good DAM consultants will acknowledge the other two and have strategies to assist you to deal with them.
- The Installer Illusion: the idea that simply installing a product you will solve your problems without configuring it for your specific needs.
- Don’t reinvent the wheel: without a consultant you might waste time on tasks that are unnecessary.
“For most people, hiring a consultant is all about saving time and money by getting everything right the on the first try.
