Understanding your DAM needs
We start with a conversation about your current process. Together, we’ll assess what’s working, what’s hurting, what’s on your wish list, and how Aldis can help.
Study & Audit
If you decide to engage us beyond that initial conversation, our trained librarians will then study your team’s unique information-seeking behavior to become experts on your terminology, workflows, and media use habits. That will inform a DAM system audit, which will result in an objective snapshot of your current situation.

DAM designed by librarians
The next step in the process involves the layout and configuration of the system – optimizing the user experience and its infrastructural backbone (e.g., DAM software and hardware, and a hosting strategy) – and a governance plan that ensures your “people system” is well-designed, too.

Putting DAM into service
The next step in our service approach is to customize your DAM platform for your team’s unique language and work rhythms. We begin by implementing some key automation processes – industry best practices – and then we adapt search fields, filters, and tagging structures to ensure assets are consistently saved for intuitive searchability.

every aspect so we can focus on our actual jobs.~ Kristin J. | Big Box Retail
Standardizing new processes
The key to a good DAM is to NOT “set it and forget it.” It needs to be a living library that evolves and grows as your company does. Once we’ve deployed your new DAM, we can stay with you to provide the training and to make system changes and optimizations where necessary. You won’t know what works (or doesn’t) until you’ve had a chance to live with it!
Fractional librarian support
A DAM is like a traditional library—the entire catalog of assets must be maintained to be current and accessible. Our librarians and seasoned post-production veterans can become an extension of your team, helping you maintain your DAM, train your people, and provide day-to-day media support. We stay with you to handle the logistics so that your creative team can focus on what they do best–tell great stories.
Aldis is the glue between our departments
and just keeps making our DAM better everyday.~ John M. | Retail
If you’re like most companies, you have media assets - photographs, film, tape on multiple formats - that could be reused in your media production today, if only you could access it. And some of it might be of priceless historical value. Aldis can help. Whatever the format, we can digitize it for you – and then archive it in your DAM so you can find it when you need it. Don’t let your valuable assets go unused… or become lost to history.
