Success Story: NIDA

How Digital Asset Management made file-searching easier and more efficient for multiple departments - including staff and students.

"the great attraction for the system we chose was that it was scalable. Obviously, DAM systems are varied in functionality and price, but you have to find one that suits the requirements of your organization."
 

The National Institute of Dramatic Art is one of the world’s leading performing arts institutes and is the most prestigious drama school in Australia. Photographs are a hugely important and significant historical record for NIDA, with photos of performances and headshots of their all-star list of alumni, including Cate Blanchet, Baz Luhrmann, and Mel Gibson.

"The project started as an Archives project, organizing our old content. We were able to bring in marketing and communications, who were seen as the primary drivers of the current content ... A lot of what FotoWare offered also suited their business needs too"
