Pros

I like that Widen is an easy way to find assets. It is helpful for a large company--because everyone knows where to find the assets that they need.
It's works great, the API documentation is good and Widen has given excellent support on it.
Widen is a terrific tool for our global team. We are able to have 24/7 access to all our assets no matter where we are in the world.

Cons

Sometimes it gives corrupted error. I wished it could have given the corrupt error while I am uploading files.
My biggest complaint is with my own team because I keep having to reset people's passwords for the site because they forget them.
I think the one thing that I struggle with was the update on how to upload images.

Cortext Review - Cultural institution

Reviewed a year ago

We are looking towards using the DAM as our central asset location, to support both current event documentation, and our archival needs. This system can handle both, and do it well. I'm a happy user, who gladly discusses the benefits of this with other users.

Pros

I've used several DAM systems, and this is the best. It's very nimble, intuitive, and there are a multitude of built-in features that would require custom development in other systems. I am able to configure a great deal of features myself, without needing to cut and paste code into the back-end. The customer service is actually helpful, and has a good response time. I like the metadata flexibility, and the ability to customize the search Filters is helpful. The dashboard is great for quick info, and the out-of-box reports cover most of what I'm looking for. Overall, very, very pleased with this product.

Cons

As someone who missed the implementation process, and is trying to reconfigure a DAM without the benefit of 24/7 support, the documentation is not always 100%, and does leave me with some questions sometimes.

Best DAM out there. PERIOD.

Reviewed 9 months ago

The time saved with Orange Logic alone has increased my team's efficiency and company resources.Saving time with:• Licensing/Approvals/Usage Rights on all our Assets• AI Metatagging• Folder Structure Organization• Source of Truth for the entire company and our partners to access all our Assets, and track where they are used and who used them.• Elimated shoulder tapping from coworkers in other organizations.

Pros

Orange Logic is the only Digital Asset Management Platform (DAM) worth using.They are the only few DAMs that offer:• Asset AI Meta Tagging for Video and Image• Best for enterprise companies, small & large, don't get charge by the user seat.• White Glove service, every business is unique and they were the only solution that offered what we needed and how we wanted it to be customized for our company.• Easy to use platform and it does the work itself, I spend 1 hour a week managing everything.• Custom Integrations with our Software and Online Tools.

Cons

The only thing I was unhappy with was the time it took them to create our DAM system, but after the time it took to get it up and going, I can proudly say it was worth the wait for the setup.

Cortex by Orange Logic does a good job of managing many assets on both the backend and frontend

Reviewed 2 years ago

Being able to showcase all Assets of different types and make them available to customers easily and quickly for purchase is great. Exactly what you want in a platform like this. It is not our main DAM but rather our gateway for the public to access our Assets for purchase or licensing.

Pros

The platform's asset management system works well. Batch editing for sets of assets is very quick and easy to use and being able to clean out old data is helpful. Calculator while a tad clunky to set up is very robust once running

Cons

The only two things I find as a fault of the platform are when the use case sits slightly outside of its scope and future-proofing. We use the platform for both consumer and professional cases and while this is well suited to professional users, the need for every customer to have a login can be limiting for a consumer user who just wants to come on and purchase one print and will probably not be back...

Finally a DAMS that works!

Reviewed a year ago

Our company works with lots of video files, and we didn't have a great place to keep them. We had a local storage server that almost died multiple times due to power surges and we almost lost everything. We originally were going to use a different DAM solution but when Covid hit and everyone was working remotely we couldn't edit videos over the VPN. Cortex integrates with Premiere so our team can edit off of low resolution proxy files and export the final video at high resolution.

Pros

Cortex makes it easy to upload, share, and download media files. It integrates with the Adobe suite and allows for our creative team to work remotely off proxy files. It's a flexible platform, and our integration team has been a joy to work with.

Cons

I'm getting really nit-picky here, but I'd love for Cortex to support additional S3 storage tiers to save money on our cloud storage bill. It's on their roadmap though
