What We’re Up to in 2019 and Beyond

by ,

Widen Workshop

We spent a lot of quality time together in 2018 between Widen events, customer success conversations, UX field research, and more. All of these interactions gave us a lot of great insights into how we can continue to improve our products and services this year. So, if you like what we did in 2018, you’re going to love what we have in store for 2019!

Here’s a rundown of the things we’ll do, the places we’ll go, and the experiences we’ll create together this year.

We're going to help you get more done with our wide range of services

Creating and maintaining the seamless flow of digital assets across an organization not only takes unique skills but also time. When you’re feeling overwhelmed or just want help, we’re here when you say “Can’t Widen just do it?” By building on our reputation for great customer service, we’re expanding Widen’s Professional Services to include:

  • Strategic Consulting services for strategy design, martech mapping, change management, and process improvement

  • Software Consulting services for full-service implementations, metadata and taxonomy development, governance, and site refresh services

  • Managed services for data migration, metadata and taxonomy development, digital asset management (DAM) administration support including metadata entry, and integration support

  • Brand Strategy workshops for brand positioning, brand architecture, and brand management best practices

  • Design services for custom dashboards, brand portals, and customizable web-to-print templates

  • Content Production services for color retouching, catalog production, and digital imaging for e-commerce experiences

  • Workflow Automation services combining content production with DAM administration and other managed services for high-volume image creation and distribution

Mark your calendar for the 8th Annual Widen Summit October 7-9. And maybe keep the weekend before open so you can participate in the Widen Essentials bootcamp. We’re bringing you more workshops, more sessions, more networking, and more fun this year!

With over a dozen Widen User Groups (WUG) in existence today, we aim to launch at least a dozen more in places where Widen customers would like to gather on a quarterly basis. Let us know if you’re interested in starting a WUG in your city.

New ways to support your marketing and creative teams with the Widen Collective

We will continue to build on our vision of connecting marketing content across the lifecycle – from ideation and planning to management, distribution, publishing, localization, and analytics.

Our current product roadmap themes will help you and your teams:

  • Build out a content-centric experience with machine learning to relate and recommend content

  • Discover content via related assets, portals, templates, and projects

  • Streamline tagging and organizing of new assets with an upload summary

  • Easily import metadata and other asset, project, or product data with an import wizard

  • Distribute content across sales channels with Channel Portals

  • Curate content and collaborate on projects with Collaborative Workspaces

  • Integrate with popular web experience management solutions such as Adobe Experience Manager and Episerver

All this plus something big we’re working on and can’t wait to show you when you join us for the Widen Summit in the fall!
