Digital Asset Management (DAM) software has evolved beyond a mere storage solution for digital assets. In today’s market, companies must recognize the importance of leveraging their DAM as a critical component of their marketing strategy. By doing so, they can ensure that their digital assets are efficiently stored and actively utilized to drive business growth and achieve marketing goals.
Brandworkz and Spinakr – It’s always made sense.
Over two decades ago, Brandworkz entered the brand management industry, establishing themselves as trailblazers. Their commitment to innovation and excellence propelled them to the forefront of the industry, earning them a reputation as pioneers. Recognizing the need to align with a technology partner to enhance their offerings, Spinakr became Brandworkz’s North American partner in 2015, primarily motivated by Spinakr’s expertise in helping companies produce and market large volumes of digital assets and their custom technology solutions. Spinakr acquired Brandworkz in 2023, providing clients access to an expanded range of marketing and technology services.
Beyond Storage and Retrieval
While a DAM serves as a repository for digital assets, it must transcend its primary function to become a vital asset in the marketing ecosystem. Spinakr believes that understanding what each team requires to utilize the assets successfully can elevate the significance of DAM software. This approach involves evaluating the entire asset lifecycle, from ideation to usage, transforming the DAM into a critical component of the overall marketing strategy.
