Score 7 out of 10
For the short term the CDN by WoodWing/Elvis has helped us improve loadtime speeds while also improving our SEO efforts. The organized layout of the dashboard with detailed metadata makes working with many assets very efficient. If you are on a tight budget I wouldn't recommend using WoodWing Elvis DAM, and would suggest trying out a solution like Cloudinary or Amazon AWS. In today's world the faster cheaper CDN solution provider will be key in the coming future with a majority of customers turning towards mobile devices for browsing our website.

I like the organized user interface/dashboard that WoodWing provides for their CDN solution. Being able to provide user access and control what they can do permissions wise makes the process very easy to manage. Managing a team of 5+ designers can get hectic at times and this helps solve that issue. The speed of the Elvis CDN servers were on par if not faster than the other CDN solution providers out there and our website load time went from 5.0 seconds to fully load down to 2.8 which was a drastic savings. I dislike the price point that they offer as there are cheaper CDN alternatives out there. Such as Cloudinary or even Amazon's AWS depending on your overall needs. The dashboard is not as easy or simplistic as other CDN alternatives but it does get the job done of delivering assets in a timely manner.
