Widen Takes On Nine New Digital Asset Management Clients in Q2 2011

Nine elite organizations chose to streamline their digital workflows with Widen’s Software as a Service DAM technologies, adding variety and excitement to Widen’s already stellar client roster.
Aug. 4, 2011 - PRLog -- Widen Enterprises, a Madison, Wisconsin-based digital asset management software and premedia services company, announced today its service commitment to nine new customers signed during the second quarter of 2011. Those nine dynamic organizations chose Widen’s Web-based solutions for digital asset management (DAM) to better manage digital assets, fortify relationships with assets’ end users, and effectively achieve cross-platform brand consistency.

“At Widen, we know what it takes to manage valuable assets associated with disparate brands across multiple channels. That is, after all, why we built the software in the first place: to manage assets our premedia people were producing for dozens of clients,” said Widen CEO Matthew Gonnering. “We use this ourselves, so we’re beyond confident that all our new clients will find our systems are up to the task of making their workflows more efficient, more effective and more profitable.”

New Widen clients include:

Mercury Marine – A member of the Brunswick Corporation, Mercury is the leader in marine propulsion and technology, with over 4,000 dealers in the United States.

The Presidio Trust – This organization’s mission is to preserve and enhance the Presidio, a historic location in San Francisco that has been a Spanish, Mexican and United States military site. The Presidio is a National Historic Landmark District.

In addition, Widen systems were adopted by a global electronic payment technology leader; one of the largest and most respected direct marketing firms in the world specializing in beauty, wellness and entertainment consumer products; a global investment management firm; a nonprofit health care center in Pennsylvania; a national manufacturer and distributor of building products; a leading developer of medical technologies distributed in over 100 countries for the treatment of cardiac, neurological and chronic pain patients; and a full-service branding agency that works with some of the most recognizable brands in the world.

“It’s fitting that Mercury Marine join us in this new crop of Widen DAM users,” said Craig Bollig, Widen Sales and Marketing representative. “Our clients and others in the industry know Widen for performance—and not many things say ‘performance’ quite like a Mercury Marine 300 horsepower boat engine.”

These new Widen clients stand to benefit from the excellent service and market-leading DAM solutions that have streamlined workflows for over 140 other organizations.

“Widen has helped the Wildlife Conservation Society organize our large wildlife photography collection for both archival and distribution purposes. Upload and distribution is seamless and worry free,” said Ben Barry, Public Affairs Office Manager at the Wildlife Conservation Society. The WCS has been using Widen DAM for over a year.

The Media Collective®, Widen’s hosted DAM system, is now in version 5.7 and supports workflows for over 150 diverse customers. The Media Collective’s scalability allows organizations of all sizes to support their user groups with a centralized digital media library and marketing resources for improved performance. The current release of Version 5.7 of the DAM system features a newly revamped graphical user interface, which further streamlines processes and facilitates collaboration on core tasks within DAM.

Widen also recently launched a revamped version of http://digitalassetmanagement.com, an educational resource site. The site is a valuable reference for digital asset management professionals researching and justifying DAM at all levels.
