What do you like best?

Ease of setup and professional interface Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Fine-tuning user permissions bit tedious Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The only thing that could be considered somewhat difficult regarding using and setting up BAM! is the user management features. The best way to manage that is to have a well thought out plan for what user permissions will look like and who has access to what prior to building out the user lists and groups. It will make setting it up much easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

System allows dealer sales reps to have most up-to-date information and provide it to customers easily and securely. While also creating a rich, detailed app to showcase product features, comparisons, and other content, even without an internet connection. From a user standpoint, even someone who is not tech savvy can easily access and navigate the app without issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is mobile first, with a modern looking UI available on all mobile devices including smartphones and other form after mobile devices (iPad et al.). You can create the sales/marketing content once and it is available to all the field sales rep. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

During evaluation, we found it hard to connect BAM! mobile app to third party data sources, for example Oracle CRM and even salesforce.com CRM. There were not many best practices documents available to do the integration and needs a bit of configuration to get it up and running. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ensure that you make a list upfront of all the third party software and data sources you will like to integrate with and see if they are supported by BAM! AND proper best practices documentation is available for the needed implementation/integration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BAM! certainly helps to keep the sales force in the field up to date with the latest documentation of the products both offline and online via the mobile devices. It is easy to push out updates in near real0-time easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

BAM! allows us to keep our large and very mobile Sales team up-to-date with the latest Marketing assets no matter where they are. If we have a new product or service flyer, social media image or infographic to push out to the team we no longer have to send a mass email and attach large files. We can just load everything into BAM! and our Sales team can log in and get all the latest resources at their fingertips. I also love the new feature update that allows us to replace assets that we modify on the back-end rather than removing them and starting over - this is saving us a ton of time! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Like any new system, there is some set-up time that you need to invest to create the file structure for your team and get all the assets loaded and tagged appropriately. We also had to take time to train local admins and the Sales team to use it, as we were migrating from another file/asset management system. Change takes time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to centralize our asset management across our national company, making sure that everyone is using the same/most current files. Once set up, BAM! has saved us time, helping us be more efficient. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Is a program that almost surrounds perfection, I love it because it gives me the ability to distribute information among the team on marketing or sales issues; also a highly effective feature are the permission functions as they facilitate the addition and deletion of users, thus having confidential information. The product is intuitive, very simple and easily accessible to users. I am fascinated that with the mobile sales tool, I can cancel the publication, update and republish instantly and those changes are immediately reflected at the user level. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Particularly I do not like that I must download the document before I can open it. It would be easier if the file or production material was opened when it was selected; this would streamline the procedure and increase productivity. It is a very good program without serious complaints to consider. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a good tool for marketing to distribute information at important levels, it is also an excellent tool for organization and interaction of all those present in the company; combines excellently with meeting needs in terms of the world of digital marketing, the results are as expected; also looking forward to the implementation of new updates to focus on the management of digital assets on your platform without any doubt. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It contributes to a necessary and important level within the company, it is a program with great value since it allows us to have a timely distribution of the pertinent information, integrity of the staff and accessibility of the company's information to the employees; there is no more to add it does a lot to improve our work every day and we are enjoying its great reach.

How the links are displayed. You have to download the document before you can open it. It would be easier if the document / picture / material would just open when selected. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Great tool for your staff to use customized materials in the field. Easy to use and maneuver through. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our application is customized for the many different divisions of our company. I can keep my national rep information separate from the direct and agency reps. It helps divide the information that is needed at each level. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

If you're responsible for managing an avalanche of digital data and also have a group of users whose tech savvy ranges from swiftly duplicating files to their local desktop all the way to "But can't I just print everything out and have it that way? Also, I deleted half of that document because I only needed some of those pages and then I accidentally hit save, is that okay?", DAM may be the answer to your woes. In addition to the structured file management and hosting system is a fantastic mobile sales tool that will allow your sales team to quickly access the data you've deemed most relevant for their needs. When you have folders upon sub-folders of photos, spreadsheets, presentations, PDFs, and videos (drafts, edited drafts, final, new! final), most often individual users will get frustrated as their personal organization systems don't mesh with what you as an administrator have created. DAM allows you to have your bank of assets within a folder system that is separate to what you "deploy" to the mobile sales team front, allowing for your admin self to indulge in your cookie dough ice cream while your lactose-intolerant users stay in their vegan ice cream lane. This might seem like a minor boon of convenience at first glance, but in reality it's an incredible time-saver. Typically when I've had to change a file within a folder system, it was necessary for me to notify all users in an emailed announcement ("Please note that the file in Folder A > Sub-folder 3 > Sub-sub folder 2 > File 281.jpg has been updated."). Then, I would need to individually chase down our employees that work in other territories and time zones to let them know that the email I just sent out is in fact relevant to them. When multiple files have been changed, it's even more tedious. With the mobile sales tool, I can unpublish, update, and re-publish instantly and those changes are immediately reflected at the user level. As a digital administrator, I cannot properly encapsulate how being able to simply send a "Refresh your mobile app for changes." notification to our sales team makes me feel beyond a *chef kiss* gesture. Truly, I love what DAM has to offer, and if you get in touch with the team at BAM! and hear about all the amazing updates they're bringing on in the next month or two, you'll hit the request a demo button right now. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, just waiting for the new features that should roll out next month! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend contacting BAM! about their new features they intend to implement this year. Right now its focus is on Digital Asset Management and mobile deployment, but they have so much more coming, and it's the new features that have me so excited. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been using Google Drive as a means of sharing product and policy info via a complex parent and child folder system. If you're a Google Suite administrator, you'll know that Google Suite's Team Drive sharing options are incredibly limited and you ultimately have to grant Full access to the main folder for a team to properly access assets. Once everyone has Full access, multiple people do not realize that rearranging a folder or file in a way that is convenient for them changes the structure for all. Managing nearly 1 TB of active data in that manner is pure madness and until BAM! talked to me about DAM, I had no idea such a solution was available -- and in app form, too! Gone are the days where I have to scold users for taking "File 387.pdf" away to their own desktop, effectively removing it from team use. #blessed Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The interface is really intuitive, and the BAM! team was fantastic to work with every time I had a question. It's like they designed it with my needs in mind--every time I wondered to myself, "Hmm, what if I could..." then BAM! The functionality was there. It really is the complete package. I know this will make my everyday business operations easier, but I can see how it would be beneficial in a wide variety of other industries, too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can't wait to be able to use some of the features the company is already at work on adding. It'll be great to get my hands on those! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely worth your time to check it out. And the company has been super receptive to my feedback and requests, so be sure to talk to them if it's missing something you need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The age-old problems of outdated versions of sales sheets, customized pricing getting handed to the wrong client, and trying to describe what you just wish you had a picture of are gone. This product makes me and my entire team look good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The BAM! team was amazing to work with. Very responsive and helpful. They listened to our needs and built a great product that continues to get better. When you do a BETA launch and 99% of your initial feedback is positive, that's a good thing. Looking forward to watching the BAM! continue to develop with new tools and features.

What do you like best?

I have been using the BAM Mobile Sales Tool app on my iPhone as our company rolls out DAM. We've been seeking a uniform, structured file system that can be published and deployed simultaneously across all of our mobile team members. It's great to have something to refer to that always reflects the most current, approved sets of information. I am more often than not defeated by technology, but this has been really painless to use and understand. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a way to sort things myself as a regular, signed-in user per my own organizational style. If it was possible to do that and still get updated versions of whatever I moved, I would be very pleased. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a good try and I'm sure you'll see its potential to keep things consistently organized and accessible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It used to be difficult to know which versions of a file were most current, because we get product updates on a near-weekly basis. When you get a dozen file changes a week, both minor and major, sometimes you forget to change a couple and then you're "behind" and giving outdated info without knowing it. This app keeps everything current for me to use comfortably. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

BAM! provides a method for not only our marketing and sales teams to distribute information. It also allows the ability for our other departments to distribute information to our 27 branches while also allowing administrators to limit permission in a quick and easy way. When employees leave the company, the permission features provide ease in adding and removing users, keeping confidential company information private and secured. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The application overall is great, intuitive and easy to learn. As I was using the application there were a couple of areas where I felt that a slight improvement of user experience and navigation would be nice. The best part was that not only is there an easy process for providing feedback, the suggestions were acknowledged and responded to. Also, it was great to see that the suggestions were actually made to the BAM! platform within just a few weeks. It has been refreshing to work with a team that is responsive and receptive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't just think of BAM as a way for marketing to distribute information, it is a great organizational and communication tool for all departments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Timely distribution of pertinent information, template integrity, accessibility of company information to employees. A great communication tool and helps bring standardization to branches. With many branches it is difficult to implement policy changes and provide information in a timely way. BAM! allows companies to upload information easily and send out notifications to users immediately cutting down the implementation process time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
