DEAR DR. DAM: I’m Wayne, the web manager for a hotel management corporation. We own ten different hotel chains all with their own websites. In addition to being on our own websites, our images are also used in many advertising, travel, and third-party sites. Whenever we change an image or use a newer version, I spend countless hours going into every site and updating the content. After that I have to contact the other third party sites and send them the new image. Is there any way to streamline this process so I can enjoy this beautiful weather outside?
DEAR WEBSITE WAYNE: Start learning to golf because more free time is one the way! With the new DAM SaaS technology of Embed Codes released by Widen, you no longer have the redundant tasks of multiple site updates! Each image asset in the Widen DAM has its own unique URL that you will copy and paste to all your different websites. Each time that website is refreshed that image will actually be drawn from your Widen digital asset management system. So when asset updates are needed, you just log in once to your Widen Collective site and change the image and it’s dynamically changed everywhere. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
