HSM, an event management company known for organizing the World Business Forum, World Innovation Forum, and other events featuring top global leaders selected Widen in part due to the need to quickly deploy a scalable, service-based DAM solution across a global user network.
“We were faced with the challenge of digitizing all of our video content and introducing a digital asset management system to all our different business units and clients in a very short period of time. We selected Widen because they provide a flexible, scalable DAM system, within a friendly and easy-to-use environment that allows us to handle our content effectively and rapidly across our worldwide network of consumers. We’re happy to have chosen Widen as our goal was to implement a DAM solution that would help us meet our quick deployment timeline with a robust product that is an essential part of future operations,”
Other new Widen clients include:
Boise Paper Holdings – A leading manufacturer of paper and packaging products.
Bright Horizons Children's Centers – The world's leading provider of employer-sponsored child care, back-up care, education and work/life solutions.
Brunswick Bowling & Billiards – The recognized leader in the bowling industry and manufacturer of billiards tables and accessories.
Lumenis LTD – The worldwide leader in medical and cosmetic laser and light-based systems.
Midas – A leading national auto service franchise.
Additional new Widen Collective digital asset management customers in Q4 2010 include a leading marketing services company that helps local businesses and a leading biotech/pharmaceutical company among Fortune's “100 Best Companies to Work For.”
Several of Widen’s newest customers came from other digital asset management systems that were not meeting the growing digital media demands for improved marketing operations on a global scale.
"Brunswick Bowling & Billiards had been working with a DAM provider that ultimately couldn't provide the service and functionality needed for our domestic and international users. In our search for a better system, Widen came highly recommended from several sources, including our sister company, Life Fitness. Widen's DAM solution is easy to use, provides the flexibility and features we need, and is a better value for the money we spend over our previous system. Their staff is very professional, knowledgeable, and excellent to work with. Widen's DAM solution just works...and it works well," said Mike R. Krause, Production Manager at Brunswick Bowling & Billiards.
