We don't just say goodbye and good luck

A stellar implementation starts with a stellar system setup. We'll work with your team from the get-go to educate and guide you towards an awesome site launch.

And because all organizations aren't built the same, we offer two implementation options for you to choose from.

Option 1. We coach you:
Our standard implementation 

12-25 sessions (based on your Widen Collective® package)
Guided by your onboarding coach, you'll complete a series of educational sessions that empower you to manage your DAM site.

  • Sessions are one-hour web meetings 
  • Expect 2-3 hours of homework to be done before your next session
  • Topics may have more than one session based on package

Prepare for kickoff

Provide helpful resources about discovery, planning, and data migration to get your implementation started.

Kickoff project

Conduct a meeting to meet your software implementation consultant, review pre-work information, confirm your project timeline and scope, and identify users to be interviewed.

Begin data migration

Prepare assets for ingestion and collect samples of existing metadata and taxonomy structures.

Configure DAM site

Widen translates findings from interviews into configurations and starts building your site with sample assets.

Conduct feedback sessions

Go onsite to demo sample assets and metadata, see real-life examples to visualize the user experience, and enhance site configurations based on feedback.

Complete data migration

Widen completes site configuration for asset upload, reports duplicate assets or file names before upload, and applies metadata to your assets.

Finalize site branding

Add your branding to personalize the look of your site and customize graphics and messaging.

Train users on site

Widen will train your administrators and general users and confirm the readiness of your site for launch. Then you'll meet the customer experience manager dedicated to the long-term management of your DAM site.

Launch DAM site

Start regularly scheduled meetings with your CXM during the three-month site launch timeframe, and compile user feedback to make sure your site configurations are working the way you want.
