Widen Signs Up Seven New Users of its DAM Solution
MADISON, WI—Oct. 19, 2010—Widen Enterprises, a digital asset management software and premedia services company, announced today its service commitment to seven new customers signed during the third quarter of 2010. By leveraging Widen’s digital asset management as a service, these clients’ internal IT teams can focus on improving internal operational systems without diverting those resources to digital asset management.
Corinthian Colleges, Inc. (CCi), one of the largest for-profit, post-secondary education companies in North America, is deploying Widen’s hybrid Software as a Service (SaaS) solution for Digital Asset Management with the Web-based Media Collective and on-site Widen Appliance data replication.
“With four divisions, over 15,000 employees and 122 campuses, my priority was to find a way to provide quick and easy access to digital assets and customized marketing materials,” said Lance White, Digital Studio Manager, CCi. “Thanks to Widen, we will be saving multiple departments valuable time and resources. Finding the right DAM solution was no small task and Widen is a great partner to help us get up and running.”
Other new Widen clients include:
Dorel Recreational/Leisure—manufacturer of the well-known brands Schwinn, Cannondale, Mongoose, GT and Sugoi
Graphcom Creative, Inc.—provider of graphic communications services and print management solutions
Confluence Watersports—world’s leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of kayaks, canoes and paddlesports accessories
Other organizations who have selected Widen’s digital asset management system in the third quarter include a U.S. government office, a global healthcare products leader, and a worldwide manufacturer of consumer packaging products.
“Dorel Recreational/Leisure is excited to launch the Media Collective to provide global access to a digital asset management system across their brands—Cannondale, GT, Schwinn, Mongoose, and SUGOI. The Web-based DAM solution from Widen provides our customers with easy access to the entire library of hi-res photos, graphics, video and marketing materials. It is an important addition to the resources we provide to our customers and employees,” said Christie Parker, Digital Image Archivist, Cycling Sports Group.
