SpreeCommerce Digital Asset Management

Managing digital assets of an E-commerce store becomes a huge challenge as the store expands and the team size grows. DAM (Digital asset management) is about centralizing, tracking, managing, locating, and sharing digital content and that's exactly what we have in store for you - Your own Digital Asset Manager enabling you to manage all Digital assets of your SpreeCommerce store in an efficient and organized way.

Another important advantage is automation of certain workflows, like an organized approval process for all assets. Each person has his/her own role and responsibility in bringing together the perfect storefront. With all assets centrally available, this can be done with seamless coordination and great efficiency. For example : A product photographer can upload photographs, the digital visual merchandiser can approve and use those to build compelling displays and the product team can put them together in a page. Moreover, well organized, accessible content makes itself readily available for future use.

Below is a demonstration of how SpreeCommerce Digital Asset Manager can help you manage all your digital assets.
