Overall Satisfaction with Acquia DAM (Widen)

It is the data asset management system we use for photos, videos, files, etc. I am an administrator of the system and set up new users, manage use and assist with overall usage.
  • Phone app for accessing assets
  • Easy upload options on desktop
  • Creation of Collections
  • Ability to upload through the mobile app
  • Ability to mass upload assets with varying keywords
  • Search
  • Storage in One Location
  • Accessibility for Users across Campuses
  • Accessibility for Use on Various Media
  • Negative - Not Everyone Using It Consistently (needing the ability to send a quick link to a collection and not require a log-in to download images on the platform they are using)
  • Positive - Know who is and is not using the system
  • Positive - Storing of archived files for quick access
  • Negative - Need to go back and add key words to allow more flexibility and "findability" for searches.
Unsure at this time.
Personally have not used the support services yet, as was just recently added as an admin and served in a user role previously.
Still working to determine how helpful it has been outside of the marketing team.

It has been helpful to make social media posts by allowing images to be pulled out of the mobile app for use. The lack of ability to upload photos from your mobile device is a challenge and adds numerous additional steps to get elements loaded into the system. I can't stress enough the importance of information needing to be added to items as they are uploaded for keywords to make the search as good as possible. Being able to add additional elements individually when doing mass uploads (possible option added to the upload process--1st level would allow keywords for all items uploaded; 2nd level would allow you to add individual tags to items after the mass tag) would be helpful.
