Comments: Barberstock has been a lifesaver for us at Visit Bellevue Washington. It has saved us so much time and resources to have a one-stop photo management platform in place, plus the support team at Barberstock are so tuned into the tourism marketing industry and always ready to help answer questions or adjust our portal to fit our needs.

Comments: Managing digital assets across all departments in my organization is an ongoing task. The features that I have found most helpful in Barberstock is the ability to allow vendors to upload assets for approval, to upload images myself, add and edit permissions and meta data individually or in large batches, and collection creation to allow me to curate images for a third party.

I am also impressed with the level of customer service and dedication to continuing to improve their product and services. I would highly recommend Barberstock to anyone looking for a reliable and easy to navigate digital asset management system.

Comments: Would I recommend Barberstock? Oh my¿ why wouldn't I? Barberstock has been a huge element in my organization and the tools they have available to us are worth gold. The Customer Service has been both professional and highly responsive.

We had another service before, and cataloging our images had always been daunting and the search was clunky. Barberstock solved all that and with our partnership with them we no longer have members of my team avoiding using our image library. Just about everyone on our team now uses it fairly often. It has made getting images to our Partners and Media contacts a snap.

We would highly recommend Barberstock.

Comments: Barberstock came in very handy when we were working with the publisher of our Visitors Guide. They could download as many different photos as they wanted to see what would fit in the publication's layout. Our web team company also uses it on a regular basis to add new images to our website and digital advertising campaigns. I no longer have to stop to find and reformat photos. I personally am really appreciating all that Barberstock has to offer - it has saved me hours of time.

Comments: I would recommend Barberstock because of the ease of the platform - it makes it easier to send files and we've become more efficient with our asset management. I love that we can send in all of our raw files and the Barberstock team takes care of hard work, especially when it comes to video. As a small organization, it¿s definitely a bonus. We are in the process of accumulating more assets and having this service available has been extremely helpful in terms of overall organization. Plus, it's made it better for us time-wise - using Barberstock has eliminated a lot of the work our internal team would have to take on.

Comments: Barberstock has helped us organize our assets in an intuitive and user-friendly way for our staff, clients and members of the media. The ability to provide photos and video clips on short notice and to share curated collections of assets has made our workflow more streamlined and eliminated the need for digging through files and sending assets via email. We love the customer service and assistance cataloging photos and video and our users love the look and the easy-to-use interface.

Comments: The Barberstock platform was a huge help during our recent web site redesign project. The graphic design team had constant access to our entire library of digital assets, saving our staff a tremendous amount of time and work. We're a very small DMO in terms of staff size, so having all of our digital assets online in one place, accessible at a moment¿s notice, is important. This winter, while on a marketing trip halfway across the country, we had a media request for an image, and they were on deadline. By utilizing the Barberstock platform, I was able to get that image to them immediately, something I wouldn¿t have been able to do otherwise, which would have been a missed opportunity.

Comments: I¿m so impressed with Barberstock so far! The platform provides so many options to get interested parties the assets they need, and quickly. The initial set up was arduous, but that investment has paid off as our whole library is now properly catalogued and is accessible. Our images and videos are our greatest tool to tell our DMO's story, and this library deserves a platform like Barberstock to show it off at it¿s best.

Comments: The Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority has found that allowing users to browse our library and select the assets that will work best for their publication has resulted in a greater selection of images being shared across more outlets. The Barberstock team has been responsive and professional, and always available to assist our staff. The LTVA recommends Barberstock for any organization that is often asked to share images and videos.

Barberstock has made management of our digital assets a lot easier

Comments: Barberstock has made management of our digital assets a lot easier, and is something that gives us more insight into what the needs of our users are. Before, there were folders saved in various places on computer servers, and it was time consuming to process a request for certain images to upload them to a FTP or file share site. There was no tracking, unless you wanted to spend time to dig through old emails to determine what had been sent in a certain time range.

Now everyone on our team has the knowledge of our Barberstock media collection library, and can easily send that info to interested parties without having to forward every single request and wait for a staffer to find it on the server. And at the end of the month, we can tell our board or stakeholders how many images were distributed to outside our office, as well as monitor trends if a certain library is suddenly being heavily utilized that we might need to add more images to. Barberstock makes getting the right images of our destination out there much more easier.

Comments: The team at Barberstock have been wonderful to work with. After taking on the management of our company's digital image library 2 years ago, Deanna and her team have gone above and beyond to bring our library to what it is today. They have recommended new features that help to better organize our images in addition to explaining how these will benefit our partners, as well as internal and external stakeholders, who rely on the use of our image bank from day-to-day.

Comments: I would recommend Barberstock to any organization like ours with asset management issues. It¿s a great tool for managing and sharing resources in one location.

I like the ability to search by keyword and by category. The images are prepared in a variety of formats and sizes as well so I can download the appropriate resolution and save time resizing for web. It¿s also great to be able to quickly toggle between photography and video. The administrator tools come in extremely handy too when asset need to be updated.

Storing our images in the platform frees up space on our system. It also saves so much time and effort having users search and download what they want directly. No more hours spent pulling images from a variety of places and then finding a way to send them to the journalist or member via Dropbox or other, then repeating the steps again for the next request. The system is also our safety check, ensuring that we are always supplying users the correct photo credit.

Comments: Moving our image database to the Barberstock system has been a very efficient move for our small DMO. Before Barberstock, we had dozens and dozens of folders categorizing hundreds of photos, but it was a time-staking process to find the photo we needed or had a request for. Now, with our entire image library online and searchable by anyone, we save countless hours when we have image needs (both internally and externally). Staff use it regularly when searching for images that are related to certain projects. Businesses have used it to research images for new websites or other projects. And last but not least, our ability to provide quick, searchable access to media and advertising partners not only saves us time, but is regularly praised by the partners who can download what they need. We love Barberstock. My only wish is that we would have had access to it years earlier.

Comments: We have started working with Barberstock to organise all of our images, materials and reports from our global work, over the past 13 years. This isn't an easy task, but our work with Barberstock has made our asset management so much easier in just a few weeks. We have everything we need in one place, searchable, categorised and our platform is so easy to use. Thank you to everyone on the Barberstock team for talking us through the process, being on hand all of the time regarding questions. We cannot recommend this company enough.

I've used many other DAMs - Barberstock is the simplest.

Comments: It's so simple and has saved me hours daily in my workflows. The Barberstock team works intimately with you and your content to make sure everything is setup the way you want it to be. Once setup, the platform pretty much runs itself with little to no upkeep unless you're adding more content, and even then, the process is simple and fast.

Their customer service is beyond any of the other DAMs as well. They are very personable and really care.

I'd say one of the biggest selling points was that they truly wanted to help me, the sale was secondary. There's no question in my mind that Barberstock is the way to go.

Comments: I would recommend Barberstock because it¿s very easy to use, and it's an organized, simple way to archive and search for photos and video. Before setting up a DAM, we used folders on a shared drive that were not easy to search. I like that we can upload images ourselves and we are able to send links out to media and/or allow them access to our photography inventory very simply. On top of that, the customer service is excellent.

Comments: Juggling photo requests seemed like a full-time job before we made the jump to Barberstock. Now our requests are handled efficiently while still giving us the opportunity to review and approve users. This allows us to make sure our usage agreements with photographers are respected and also allows us to see which customers are utilizing our imagery. The system has been a huge help and I would recommend Barberstock to any DMO.

I would definitely recommend Barberstock for anyone looking to streamline their digital assets or gain additional media exposure.
