All companies with the passage of time find themselves having a disorganized archive of digital files: photos, videos, multimedia documents. This archive, which has grown out of all proportion, without control, fed by several people, often resides on the computer of an employee or in the folder of a server. At best, someone will have put some effort into it and grouped the files into folders, named with the date or name of a particular event. But the same thing will have been done by a colleague, an intern, a former employee: each of them will have used their own methods, their own coding, in other words, their own order.
The more time passes, the more it becomes necessary to equip your company with digital asset management software, specifically what is commonly called Digital Asset Management, often abbreviated by the acronym DAM. The sooner you make this choice, the less time it will take to re-establish an order.

eTEAM is the digital asset management platform that allows you all this.
The strength is the integration with other modules:
