Listening and message repetition are key to user adoption

by Nora Gehin, July 21, 2017

We all know that training your users on how to use the Widen Collective is important. If you don’t train them, they won’t know how to use the tool and, eventually, they’ll give up on using it altogether. But training them can be difficult if you’re unsure of where to start. The first step is always listening to users and figuring out what they need. Start by asking questions such as, “How can I help you use the Widen Collective more efficiently?” But what if the response is, “What’s the Widen Collective?” This very well may be the starting point for some organizations, as was the case with Brady Corporation.

How a DAM system cleanup helped Kerry boost users by 270%

by Nora Gehin, June 27, 2017

What do you do when no one is using your DAM system? When talking about the system involves phrases like, “Ugh, I keep trying to find stuff in there, but I never can!” or, “Ha! I never go in there anymore!” Or when you hear that employees are turning to Google to find brand images, taking screen grabs of them, and using low-resolution images in brand collateral.

Widen Insights challenge wrap-up

by Nora Gehin, August 9, 2016

The Widen Collective Insights Contest recently came to a close and we’re excited to share our winner and runners-up.

We ran this contest after the release of Quick Insights, which was one of the latest updates we made to our digital asset management analytics offering. Quick Insights gives you visibility into content performance so you can reuse the good stuff — and ditch the not-so-good stuff. While the Insights app provides a holistic measurement of asset performance in a campaign or collection, Quick Insights serves up data for individual assets. Quick Insights is centralized in Quick View, just a click away from any page in the Widen Collective.

Diary of a DAM admin: 2015 Widen Summit

by Nora Gehin, April 12, 2016

Maile Thiesen is a first-time digital asset manager at the University Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) — but Maile is no stranger to digital asset management (DAM). Maile first learned the importance of file organization and managing large photo collections studying photography at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Maile is now helping UMass address their growing DAM needs by organizing their digital assets with the Widen Media Collective.

Maile attended the 2015 Widen Summit, an annual conference for Widen customers to teach, learn, share, and grow with one another. In addition to enjoying the cheese and beer that Madison has to offer, Maile learned important skills to enhance UMass’s workflow and keep employees engaged with the DAM.
