The Avid eco-system is extremely reliable. There are multiple pieces working together to transcode, index, and archive media. Needing minimal maintenance and upgrades. Avid support is extensive and can be reached 24/7 at any time of the year. I recommend this product to any production team that wants a long term, reliable asset manager

If you are looking for an affordable solution for logos, photos or videos this is one of the best solutions we have found. It handles several file types and provides a more affordable option than other DAM services. If you are looking for an enterprise DAM solution this is probably not what you are looking for but it doesn't pretend to be that.

Cons
Avid Technology
  • The same media can be imported more than once by multiple users, creating duplicates. A way for the user to be prompted that this media already exists before the import.

Helpful onboarding support and also a very relaxed introductory demo and trial period. The support team walked me through all stages of linking our Drive account and adding assets. The online support site has a ton of resources and helpful explanations. Email support was also a big help to get us started.

Final Cut Server was a mess and wasn't really supported by Apple anymore when we were last using it. Avid has good support and we know they're going to be around and support their products. It's also just a better fit for our workflow in terms of producing content, as well as archival and storage solutions.

Pics.io has a more approachable setup and pricing structure for our needs. It also uses a familiar online storage setup for an easier learning curve. We also didn't have to pay for a higher storage tier that we wouldn't end up needing. The other services were definitely in the running but the ability to use our existing Google account was a big plus.
