Webinar: Selecting DAM Vendor Partners For Digital Asset Management Initiatives – 15th January 2019

DAM News is pleased to announce our very first webinar on 15th January, presented by my co-contributor Ralph Windsor.  Aimed at those tasked with selecting a DAM vendor partner to implement a solution for their organisation, the session hopes to provide a wide range of insights and advice that attendees can use to support their selection process, from shortlisting potential vendors and writing RFPs through to negotiating agreements, deciphering the jargon, and identifying possible issues with the customer-partner relationship further down the line.

Topics covered will include:

  • Building a business case for your DAM initiative
  • Identifying stakeholders and assembling the selection team
  • Collecting requirements and writing vendor briefs
  • Researching the market
  • Structuring the selection process
  • Demos, Trials and Proof of Concepts – understanding the role of each
  • RFPs – dos and don’ts
  • Negotiating agreements
  • Working with consultants and advisers

With over 24 years experience in the Digital Asset Management field, Ralph’s numerous roles include software developer, project manager and consultant.  He has also been instrumental in establishing DAM industry resources such as The DAM Vendor Directory, DAM Glossary, The Digital Asset Supply Chain Consortium and numerous other DAM-related initiatives.

With the current DAM software marketplace being both overcrowded and homogeneous, this webinar represents an opportunity to gain valuable guidance and inside information from one of its long-standing professionals.

The one hour webinar is free of charge, although there is a limit of 100 attendees.  To secure your place, please visit the link below and complete the simple sign-up form.

Duration: 1 hour
Cost: Free

In addition to the DAM News webinar, Ralph will also be moderating a session on vendor selection at The IEN DAM Summit the following week on 24th-25th January in New York
