The Widen Collective® helps organizations achieve a range of business outcomes, from improving brand consistency and cross-team collaboration to streamlining content workflows. But reaching these goals requires more than just access to a digital asset management (DAM) solution — it entails strong user engagement and continual site optimization.
That’s why Widen’s training program helps users continually advance their DAM skills and use of the Collective. Let’s look at how our training program can help you reach your DAM goals.
Learning opportunities for every phase of the DAM journey
From pre-implementation through site maintenance, we offer training resources to help any user improve their understanding of DAM functionality and strategy.
Our online training center, Widen University, provides access to self-guided learning modules for all user levels. These resources explain Collective functionality through a curriculum that empowers participants to apply their new knowledge and skills directly to their own Collective site.
Each experience is:
- Interactive. Hands-on activities allow participants to practice using tools and functionality.
- Flexible. There are resources to help everyone from a new user to an experienced admin.
- On-demand. Users from every continent and timezone can access instruction when they need it most, 24/7.
Widen User Groups (WUGs) are communities of Widen admins and users who gather virtually to share best practices, exchange ideas, and learn how others address similar work challenges. Some WUG meetings focus on a specific topic, such as using site analytics, and others center on a distinct industry.
WUG participants develop professional relationships, share expertise, learn from each other, and discuss the unique challenges of managing content.
In addition, Collective admins have access to Widen Connect, our online user support community. This extension of our Support Center includes a user forum to ask and answer questions, a learning calendar to see all upcoming Widen events, and an easy way to track support tickets.
Together, Widen University, WUGs, and Widen Connect provide Collective users with instruction and inspiration to advance their DAM strategy and help expand their use of the Collective, at every phase of their DAM maturity.
So why wait? Get started today and explore the resources that will help you take your use of the Collective to the next level.
