My name is Maribel Dato and I work with American Media, Inc. We recently signed up with Web DAM to create a full e-commerce website solution to our syndication and licensing needs, so in other words, this site helps other clients that are typically business media to license or purchase rights to our content through the site that Web DAM solutions has created for us. Overall the experience has been very good. We had the website up and running within 7 weeks which is what we expected as a development time. Our customer success rep has done a stellar job in assisting us with setting the account properly. One of the pros to having our website developed by the web DAM team is that we not only got the training from our account success manager but we also got videos and other interactive tools to learn the site systems. The only issues I've experienced are that when specific functionality questions or issues have come up, I don't always get an answer within the same day and sometimes I need to wait for the next upgrade of the Web DAM system or rollover in order for it to be fixed, which is not as practical as we'd wish when it comes to doing business with our own clients with the website. I hope to see many improvements from your services and in general we are very satisfied as customers with our new DAM site.
More than just a technology or product, WebDAM and it's various support resources really helped us think through our internal digital asset management uses and operating procedures. We've been able to streamline and better structure internal tasks while setting up a manageable and sustainable process. As a large and dynamic organization, it's been a great way to centralize our photos and better serve our colleagues, partners and customers - who all have various needs for sharing and using digital content. We really want to be able to take advantage of WebDAM's full range of features and expand our digital archives - we know we've only just scratched the surface.
WebDam has been a godsend for Lawrence Berkeley Nat'l Lab, assisting us into getting our Science images distributed worldwide. Classic example is aI get an e-mail from WIRED magazine Editorial offices in London, when they discovered my photo of the anti-neutrino detector at Daya Bay, China on WebDam and expressed a desire to run the photo as a 2 page spread in their next issue. Well after the issue came out, we then proceeded to get requests worldwide for that photo which eventually ran in over 50 publications worldwide. Overall, WerbDam has run very efficiently for us. Whenever there is a glitch or an issue that may arise, the WebDam team is fast to respond and the problem is resolved quickly. I use Lightboxes all the time to send collections to various clients and have had nothing but praise from users of WebDam. There are many here at the Lab who feel that the money spent on the WebDam product was one of the best investments the Lab has ever made. Couldn't be more pleased with the product.
Been using WebDAM for a couple of years now and love it. Helped us consolidate our product and beauty photography and other marketing assets into a single place and saved a ton of money and time. Previously, we had multiple agencies and marketing staff across multiple global business units continually looking for photos. Agency requests were expensive and time consuming, often for the same images. Now everyone can get to the same repository for the latest product and beauty shots. No more need for multiple copies all over the organization and we can see at a glance all the latest photos. Great search engine too. Pros: Very cost effective and scalable. Easy to use interface on both front end and back end, powerful meta tagging and search. Like the ability to set up permissions and give discrete access to certain assets for different groups and users. Also ability to download smaller size JPGs from high res source images. Company is actively improving their system and recent changes are making it easier to use and more powerful. Cons: Began as an image management tool so the workflow is still geared toward images. Not using it for managing all our digital source files (i.e. InDesign source with links). We are beginning to put video files in our WebDAM system, but there's still some work to be done on video management. Not really a pro or con, but setting up all the proper meta data is a major task if you haven't already done so. But once you do get all your tagging and taxonomy in place, the system gets even more powerful.
We purchased webdam to store and help find the articles, design documents, assignments and presentations that comprise our curriculum. While it can do that, I wish that the ui was more intuitive. One major issue is its inability to preview Word docs. Another is the restriction on length of item name that can be displayed.
The user interface is intuitive and it's easy to locate assets with the search system. It would be ideal to be able to edit keywords, metadata, etc. at the time of upload. Hopefully this is something we'll see in the future.
We have been pleased thus far with the services that WebDAM Solutions has provided to our Department. We would like to see more top goals for the company to be placed on the front page somewhere. We would like to understand what are the company's upcoming goals with BETA program, working areas, etc. We would also like to participate/attend events that have other WebDAM customers to see how they are utilizing your services/product.
