DIRECT - Our full-service technology selection option

Selecting the right DAM, MAM, digital preservation system, or AI tool can be daunting. We take the view that technology serves people and that successful selection is enabled by a deep understanding of users’ needs, goals, and behaviors. We can help you articulate your requirements, prioritize needs, identify potential solutions, and find the perfect fit for your organization.

For DAM, MAM, and DPS selection, we offer three different options of Direct technology selection service, depending on your needs and goals:

Package 1 Package 2 Package 2
Stakeholder alignment workshop
Discovery interviews
Requirements & usage scenarios documentation
Potential solutions shortlist
RFP creation
RFP distribution support and vendor Q&A
Detailed proposal analysis
Vendor demo coordination & attendance

For AI evaluation and selection services, we follow a similar process, but instead of RFPs and system demos, we establish ground truth data and test available solutions to evaluate suitability for your needs.

Looking to build a custom tool and want help finding the right service provider? We can help draft specifications, requirements, RFx, and evaluate proposals.
