"A great product for our needs"

What do you like best?

WebDAM is a great way of sharing projects and files with your team, all while controlling the level of access each user is given. I love the new Brand Connect interface. It's very easy to design a stunning landing page for your users.

What do you dislike?

Some of the costs involved can seem high. I do understand that it can be a large expense to have features this advanced and complex created and working smoothly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot! They really do try to help make the software work for your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed an interface that allowed our network of dealers to access our photo collection. We needed a place where they could be given permission to download certain images, while also being required to request some images that we were only allowed to share for certain uses. WebDAM's user groups and permissions made this easy and Dan Saltzman, our Customer Success Manager, has been a great resource when we've needed help.

"Strong, feature-rich DAM solution with great support"

What do you like best?

Flexibility and scalability, both in adding and organizing assets, and setting user and group permissions. WebDAM's customization options are near-infinite; we currently have over 300 authenticated users sorted into 20 groups. We choose who sees what, and what assets are public, private and/or require admin approval before downloading. Saves time exponentially, and gives us piece of mind over how and where our assets are being used.

What do you dislike?

Brand Connect looks great on paper, and is always showcased well during webinars, etc. But in reality, documentation around how to implement, and the limitations or best practices is very limited. Would be great if there were a more formal "how-to" toolkit or guide to help new users plan and implement this service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Develop a strong strategy and plan for both implementation and management. Start small, and increase your asset library as your user base increases. Build internal engagement (especially in large organizations) through training and DAM roadshows.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our main business problems were insecure asset storage, widespread duplication and asset ROI. With WebDAM, we've been able to eliminate the majority of duplicates, implement a single, secure source for our assets, and begin tracking their usage through WebDAM's robust reporting tools. It has made us more agile, and allowed our users easier access to the latest, greatest—and official—assets for our organization.

What Digital Asset Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Most feature rich, but..."

What do you like best?

Of any cloud tool I've used, the metadata tagging is the most robust. I like the ability to import lists of keywords which then become checklists to use for tagging. Creating and sharing lightboxes is nice.

What do you dislike?

WebDAM will nickel and dime you to death on features, limiting access to the Brand Connect features unless you bump to the next level up. I also wish it had a smart collection feature, where dynamic, photo sets could be created and auto-updated based on certain metadata criteria (like an iTunes smart playlist). Other DAM systems have this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly having a searchable photo library.

"WebDam and Brand Connect is a mostly user friendly product that needs few kinks worked out."

What do you like best?

I like the user friendly interface and clean design. Being able to customize your Brand Portal is a nice feature. I enjoy working with the WebDam team.

What do you dislike?

There are some kinks that need to be fixed in my opinion. For instance there is only a global download agreement preference. If you have multiple brands on multiple portals with different agreements this serves no purpose. In Brand Connect there is no way to make an image a hyperlink. There is no way to change fonts and sizes of fonts in the custom feature of Brand Connect. I realize it's a beta version but these are basics things. Also cropping of photos is an issues in the custom carousel and folder icon features. It fills the area and crops most of your photos. When a Brand Portal Only user logs out of the Brand Portal it goes to the core dam login screen.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a fairly priced out of the box online mid-tier solution. It has many standard features but can use a few more depending on your specific needs. I would recommend it for anyone starting with their first DAM solution. I can't answer yet if it's a long term solution as I just started using the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having a central image repository for my overall company and it's many brands. Adding brand portals for each of our main brands so they can serve their many retailers and vendors.

"A very good product, backed up by a great team. "

What do you like best?

WebDAM is very well supported. Access to tools like DAM success and the support received from the team at WebDAM make it easy to build a DAM that is tailored for my organisation.

I am also a big fan of the brand connect front end and Shutterstock integration.

What do you dislike?

Most of the WebDAM support team are based in the west coast US, meaning calls are generally late in the day UK time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your organisation has strict IT and security processes, I would advise getting the ball rolling internally very early on. WebDAM are very supportive but in my experience it can take time to get agreement on some internal it and security aspects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Global brand consistency. Team engagement. Brand advocacy. Internal brand team reputation.

Spend time looking through tutorials or get training to help setup.

"New User, Lots of Excitement!"

What do you like best?

Our company has needed asset management long before I arrived and I'm super excited to see Brand Connect demo'd today because I think we can jump right in to using it. The user interface and experience this will provide for the viewer is significant. It also looks fun to organize the content related to product launches. Our customer success manager Brian has been super great to work with; he is well versed in the product and quick to respond to all my questions. I am looking forward to a great portal launch for our dealers!

What do you dislike?

It can be slow at times but I have full confidence engineering will solve this challenge and improvements will be significant soon.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing asset access to outside design and marketing agencies. Supporting our dealers to market to their networks. Internally providing the necessary resources to reduce the number of one-off inquiries to which marketing must respond.
