What is Digital Asset Management?
DAM stands for Digital Asset Management: a type of software designed to store, edit, manage and share your digital assets efficiently. Whether installed on your computer, laptop or a dedicated server (so-called on-premise DAM) or based in the private or shared cloud and accessible via a browser, the goal of any Digital Asset Management solution is to simplify the way you and your business organize your files or digital assets.
What is a Digital Asset?
Basically, digital assets can be any digital file that you create on your computer — whether it is a text file (in the file formats like .doc, .docx, .txt, .pdf), an image (.png, jpg, .jpeg, .tiff), a video (.mp4, .avi, .mov), or an audio file (.mp3, .wav) — you name it. So if you need to organize your digital assets, tag them with metadata, filter and store files in one single place — that’s what a DAM system usually does (and much more).
What are the benefits of a good Content Portal?
No more daily and repetitive requests from your colleagues or clients for the right material. They should all have instant access to a online Portal where they can search, browse and download material in an intuitive interface.
Create a 'single source of truth' for your content. Eliminate the need to search in servers, desktops, mailboxes from you and your colleagues.
Your audience can not only browse your content, but should also be able to find the right material with an intuitive search. By adding tags and other relevant metadata you will make sure that your team or clients can always find the right material within seconds.
How frustrating is it if outdated material keeps getting used? A good Content Portal solution should make this impossible with proper version management, which makes sure that your Portal visitors only have access to the latest version.
The visitors of your Portal should be able to easily share your content with additional people as well. In Swivle they can do this with 1 click by creating a public Sharelink!
Your marketing and product material is beautiful, and it deserves to be housed in an equally beautiful place. A Swivle Portal always looks good, but especially when you add your own logo, branding images and colors.
Sharing is great, but not all content should be accessible by everyone. By creating multiple Portals you can specify which groups of people have access to which content. And you can choose between a public or a password-protected Portal!
Your content should be easily accessible for everyone, all the time and from anywhere. No more connecting to a company server through slow or unreliable VPN's, a good implementation will allow your team to never struggle with access again.

Frequently asked questions
How many people can access my Portal?
This depends on your Swivle license. Our plans all include a different amount of monthly active users:
Kickoff: 1 Portal with a total of 100 monthly active users
Grow: 5 Portals with a total of 500 monthly active users
Scale: 10 Portals with unlimited monthly active users
Do I create or assign specific users for every Portal?
Our Portals don't use specific users, so no one is logging in with a username and password combination. Instead, the access is either public (everyone who accesses the link can see the content) or password-protected (there is a login page with a general password).
What happens if I exceed the maximum of monthly visitors on my Portal?
Don't worry! Everyone will still be able to access your content. We will monitor this and in case of over usage we will reach out to discuss this with you.
How do I configure my own Portal?
