Pros: - Interface is clean and highly customisable
- Search is powerful and precise
- It handles our 80,000+ assets well
- Support is extremely helpful and quick

Cons: - Some customisation options are tricky to find and often located in the backend config.php file, requiring specific php knowledge.

Overall: A very solid option in this space. It provides significant levels of customisation of the UI and importantly for our organisation many levels of customisable access to assets. With a sizeable database the ability to add very specific metadata keeps the search functions healthy.

Probably one of the best aspects is the Montala support team, who despite being based in the UK are quick to answer any queries and work on them remotely.

Recommendations to other buyers: As with all DAM get your system set up correctly from the get go and keep keywording and metadata consistent.

Pros: Having so many ways to identify and describe assets: tags, captions, subjects, etc. The ability to create and browse collections, and the ability to share directly from Resource Space.

Cons: Could be a little easier to navigate.

Overall: We have decades worth of photos, and Resource Space gives us an easy way to search them. The ability to caption photos is hugely helpful, and the collections give us a way to browse photos when we need something more general. The ability to directly share items (especially video files), without needing to download them and then upload them again to Dropbox or Hightail, is invaluable.
