What do you like best?
Everything about this product is easy! We initially chose the software after closely reviewing more than 7 different solutions. Widen accommodates all of our needs where others came up short. Ultimately the deciding point came down to the out-of-the-box video streaming feature, this is what makes Widen different.
The Widen team has the roll-out process down to a science. They worked with us to define a solid taxonomy which paved the way for an easy initial asset upload.
Training and the on-boarding process was seamless. The application is easy to use but, when in doubt, they have a fully loaded training library (Widen University) which has video tutorials and easy to find articles.
We are very pleased with Widen and would definitely choose it again!
What do you dislike?
Scratching my head trying to think of a dislike ...
We uncovered an area where enhancement could be possible and found out that they are already working on it and will soon be released. I really can't think of a dislike.
Recommendations to others considering the product
I would highly recommend Widen. The support team has been SO helpful every step of the way and continue to quickly respond to our needs.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
All of our assets were previously stored on a nicely organized shared drive. We needed a repository that had advanced filtering options so we could easily find the assets we were looking for.
We also have international employees that needed access and downloading assets over the network was painful. Sharing assets with customers and external vendors was also difficult.
Widen Collective has solved all of these issues. Our international employees LOVE the system. We never held any official training for them. They watched one of the "How to" videos Widen provides and they were immediately using the system. We now have a "one true source" for all of our assets. It isn't considered an approved asset, if it isn't in Widen.
