Our Path to Building Accessible Software for All Users

by Molly Hamm, August 15, 2022

 

Empathy is central to our values and culture. It’s reflected in our exceptional customer service, respect for our teammates, and commitment to building quality software. Our General Manager, Matthew Gonnering is so passionate about the importance of empathy in business that he made it the focus of his TEDx Talk.

So our interest in building technology that’s accessible to all users is a natural extension of our corporate culture and mindset around empathy and inclusion. We have infused this passion in our digital asset management (DAM) and product information management (PIM) platform at Widen and are carrying this foundation into our user experience (UX) work on all Acquia products, too.

Because this work is so pivotal to who we are, we’d like to share more about our effort to meet accessibility standards across all Widen and Acquia products.

9 Easy Ways to Brand Your Widen Collective® Site

by Molly Hamm, September 27, 2021



As a company changes and evolves, so does its brand. After all, a brand is more than just words and images ⏤ it’s the identity of your organization. And memorable, cohesive brand experiences are built with current and approved brand assets. 

Digital asset management (DAM) systems help teams bring their brand to life with tools to centralize, organize, and distribute photos, videos, logos, and creative files. In essence, a DAM platform can be the gateway to your organization’s brand story. 

That’s why it’s important to infuse your brand across the look and feel of your DAM site. Not only is it an opportunity to remind your stakeholders who you are and what you stand for, but it helps embed your DAM site in your organization’s DNA — which encourages system adoption and long-term user engagement.
