“Maintenance is going to keep this thing [DAM system] clean and working for everyone.” – Jason Kuhl, Daktronics
There’s a good chance you see Daktronics products every day. Their products range from your local high school scoreboard to digital signage in Times Square and Piccadilly Circus. Working in multiple markets and business units, made storing files on a server a real headache.
Too many contributors were adding things their own way. Which meant you had to know that person to find the files they created. So Jason Kuhl and a team at Daktronics set out to find a solution to help employees collaborate and easily share their work.
In this episode of the Widen Implementation Podcast, Jason Kuhl shares the experiences of launching and maintaining the Widen Collective digital asset management system.
Jason is Senior Graphic Designer at Daktronics. He describes himself as a “Designer with creative influences and a strategic mindset.”
Episode Topics Include:
- Getting internal teams trained and ready for the DAM kickoff
- Fears ahead of implementing a DAM system
- Leading groups and managing access during the implementation stage
- The role of the production team within the Widen Collective
- Understanding and evaluating integrations between DAM and third-party systems
- Who should be the keeper of your DAM system?
Listen to the full episode of this Widen Implementation interview to learn from Jason.
The Widen Implementation podcast helps customers prepare for and execute their DAM system rollout. Each episode features conversations with a DAM champion who has implemented the Collective. We hope that these podcasts will equip future Widen customers with the tips and insights they need to execute their own successful implementation.
