Digital Asset Management Implementation Guide

One of the most common questions we get is how long implementing Lytho takes and what kind of a commitment is needed from the customer’s side? What are the pitfalls? This guide walks you through the steps from signing a contract with a DAM provider to having all DAM users up to speed and fully onboard with the system.

Choosing the right solution

There are many options to choose from and they all have pros and cons. We’ve created a guide for you that compares the most popular DAMs which you should check out before locking your decision.

Time to implement

One of the many benefits of a SaaS DAM like Lytho is that the implementation is lightning-fast. After agreeing on a DAM configuration that is just right for your situation considering the complexity, the amount and type of users, your storage space needs, necessary integrations, etc., your Lytho DAM environment will be live within hours. There is no need to wait for weeks or months to start getting a return for your investment.

Kick-off meeting

Customer-centricity is a crucial element of a DAM system, or any business relationship. With Lytho, your project team will be introduced to their personal Consultation Specialist that will help them with any questions they have. We know how important implementing a DAM is for you and can start the kickoff the next day from the signed agreement.

Things that will be discussed in the kick-off: expectations, responsibilities, additional trainings for users, moving your assets and everything else that will help your team get the most out of DAM.

Moving your assets

After the project has been started and the roadmap for a successful implementation has been agreed upon, your assets can be moved from either your previous DAM, cloud solution or hardware storage space to Lytho. Your Consultation Specialist will either transfer your assets for you or help you import everything in the most efficient way possible, depending on your unique situation.


Training your team to use the solution in an optimal way is at the core of successful implementation. Like I mentioned earlier, you don’t want more tools that the employees will not use because they are too complex or take too much time to master. Lytho has been designed with the latest technology to be intuitive and the most user-friendly DAM out there. Even so, you want to make sure that the key users are trained and aware of all the features that can make their lives easier and enable them to reach your business goals.


 A real strategic partner will help you rise to the next level when it comes to getting the most out of your brand and the best out of your people. Your Consultation Specialist will keep close contact with you to see how you can get even more out of the solution. Lytho also offers 24/7 support to ensure that you are never alone with your questions or problems.
