Technology Selection & Implementation

Looking for a new DAM, MAM, Digital Preservation System, or Collection Management System?

Not sure where to start?

We can help!

Selecting technology to help manage, preserve, and provide access to your digital or physical assets can be daunting. We take the view that technology serves people, not data, and that successful selection of an appropriate technology is enabled by a deep understanding of users’ needs and goals. Whether you are looking for open source or commercial solutions, we can help you articulate your requirements, identify potential solutions, and find the perfect fit for your organization.

Recognizing that your organization needs help with digital and media asset management or collection management is the first step. Adding AVP to your team is the next.

Our consultants have extensive experience with DAM, MAM, digital preservation, and collection management with organizations of all shapes and sizes. We also know the marketplace of services and solutions inside and out.

How it works

We meet with your organization’s stakeholders to understand their needs and goals.

We turn your input into specific, measurable requirements and use cases that bring your vision to life. Your team prioritizes these.

We create a shortlist of candidate solutions that have the potential to meet your requirements.

We package your requirements into a Request for Proposals (RFP), including response worksheets.

We help manage the proposal process, answer vendors questions, and organize demos of shortlisted solutions.

We provide a detailed comparative analysis of proposals, giving you the information you need to make a final selection.

Once you’ve selected the right solution, we can continue to support you through the implementation process. We offer a full suite of services including system configuration, data migration, user training, and rollout management.

“The real highlight of working with AVPS is the people. As a non-technical person on a technical project, I appreciated everyone's patience and respect, even when explaining aspects of the work that might have seemed elementary.”
