I don't know how we lived without Widen's DAM solution before!

5.0 7 years ago

Comments: This software completely changed our office workflow. Finding assets used to be very painful, but with all of our assets in one location and users connected to the DAM it makes finding things easy for our office, as well as external clients. By empowering our users to find their own assets it frees up our designer time, for things like DESIGN!

Pros:

Ease of use, ease of empowerment for the user. I LOVE being able to share collections with clients. And I LOVE when someone asks for an asset, I just add them as a user on Widen, and tell them to find it themselves!

Cons:

I'm still waiting for drag and drop functionality with Indesign. A small workflow addition that would make things easier!

Great Digital Asset Management system

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Customer service is top notch and we love the software for every day use. Simple to train employees to use it.

Pros:

The searchable option and the ability to organize all of our thousands of assets. As well as the ability to download these assets in different file formats.

Cons:

If spelling isn’t accurate in the metadata or search bar, it will not be able to find what you are looking for.

Widen Collective

3.0 14 years ago

Comments: The Digital Asset System was put in place to provide easy access to assets owned by Trek Bicycle Corporation for those internally and externally. These assets can be ordered and downloaded at any time of day or night. It's an invaluable tool for our dealers, distributors, and international offices.
'
The Media Template is an online ad, and media builder. It allows Trek to control brand consistency, while it allows our users to build media in minutes using pre-approved images and text without the need of expensive software programs. We use this portion of the site to provide promotional items and in store signage to our large dealer base.
Overall, I think the Widen collective is a great product and I really enjoy working with Widen.

Pros:

Good customer support Robust reporting features Assets can be downloaded in a variety of file formats Various types of file formats are supported Permissions can be setup to protect assets Users can access the site through a standard web browser Media can be built in minutes without needing expensive software programs Assets/media can be ordered and downloaded at any time of day or night Software updates made throughout the year

Cons:

Pages can be slow to load at times Reporting tools can be confusing Custom enhancements to the site can be expensive Some education is needed for new users of the site The site is not setup for printing on demand Home page can be confusing if your site includes the DAM and the media builder

Widen Media Collective (DAM) Review

4.0 5 years ago

Pros:

Its searchable content. As long as metadata is used, searching for assets is relatively easy.

Cons:

Upload process. The Drag/Drop feature was nice! Now I'm forced to go through a wizard. Too time consuming for my liking.

Great hub for storing and sharing content

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: We are using it as a one stop shop for our field team to have access to training, resources, selling collateral, company news and other helpful things. We also love that we can quickly update the versions when needed. The team has been less frustrated now that they have 1 place to go.

Pros:

I love that I can easily store all of my content in the system, then make a website like portal to share and organize my content in a neat way.

Cons:

I wish there was a way to add hyperlinks to Asset Collections so that I can link out to other internal websites within my company or to an eCourse within Workday.
