Digital Asset Management and Storage Solutions' Pricing: Part 1
Many companies in the digital asset management and storage solutions enterprise provide either personalized quotes and setups or very specific escalating tier systems. A wide variety of options are available, including those for businesses with smaller budgets. The pricing can work within a frame work created by a company or it can be customized based on what the needs are.
All pricing information that was deemed available is provided. Much of the pricing data is taken directly from the companies' websites. Other potential sources scoured for pricing data include software review websites, such as Capterra and GetApp, industry associations' websites, and the Digital Asset Management Vendors' website. There is no further evidence that additional pricing data exists in the public domain. The companies that do not make pricing publicly available may not publish their pricing due to a preference to have their sales team deal directly with all leads, even those that are generated online.
Asset Bank's small, or Essential, pricing is for 50 or fewer users, at a monthly rate of $520, equating to yearly rates at $6,240. The company's medium, Professional, package is good for 100 users and runs a monthly rate of $930, giving it a yearly rate of $11,160. The largest data management package they offer (Enterprise) is for unlimited users and has a monthly fee of $1730, which means a yearly rate of $20,760.
Brandworkz does not provide pricing without a request, but the pricing is based on number of users and the amounts of modules added.
Brandfolder offers two levels of digital asset management, Premium and Enterprise, with Enterprise offering more in the base package then Premium. Pricing is only available if you request a quote, though the pricing beings at $45 a month and is based on the monthly subscription per user.
Daminion offers a Starter plan based around subscription, and one that offers a lifetime license. The subscription based plan runs $175 a month ($2,100 a year) for up to five users. The lifetime subscription sells for a one time price of $3995 for up to five users. To include more than five users, the client would need to build a custom plan to receive a quote.

Digizuite does not have any information available about its specific packages, but it is subscription based, and clients are able to contact "Digizuite for pricing details."
Freestyle Partners has three tiers of packages. Standard is good for unlimited users and costs £4,950 a year. Premium and Enterprise both allow unlimited users but Freestyle must be contacted directly for pricing.
hyper Content & Digital Asset Management Server offers three packages, Free, Standard, and Enterprise. The Free package is available at no charge, but the company must be contacted for pricing for the other packages. They do offer a "discount of 40% for schools" and "20% applies for government organizations."

The second, Business, is $875 a month ($10,500 a year) and also has no specific user data. As with the others the most comprehensive package, Enterprise, does not have user data. It runs between $1300 and $3100 a month based on data load ($15,600-$37,200 per year).
Prices and number of users vary widely across the digital asset management solutions spectrum with a solution for almost any budget or need. Working within certain limitations there are even free systems available through several businesses. If more customizability is desired, there are many companies that offer specific builds and personalized quotes. Whether five users or an unlimited number is required, reliable systems to suit the needs can be found.
