Widen Media Collective Earns the Highest Overall Customer Satisfaction Score Based on Verified Customer Reviews

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - April 08, 2015) - Widen Enterprises, a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management (DAM) software, announced today that the company ranked #1 in G2 Crowd's Best DAM Report Spring 2015. In this first Grid(SM) report for digital asset management software, G2 Crowd compared 11 vendors using over 200 reviews written by business and content professionals. Widen Media Collective earned the highest overall customer satisfaction scores.

A family-owned business, Widen Enterprises was founded in 1948 as a plate engraver for local newspapers in Madison, Wisconsin. Over the years, Widen added prepress, printing and photography to its repertoire and released its first digital asset management software in 1995. Today over 400 companies trust Widen Media Collective to create, manage, distribute and preserve creative assets. Well known customers include Trek Bicycle Corporation, Brady Corporation, Coty Beauty, Cornell University, Life Fitness, LG and Carnival Cruise Lines.

On G2 Crowd, 88 percent of reviewers have given Widen Media Collective a 5-star rating. The Best DAM Report rankings were based on these verified, crowdsourced reviews as well as data aggregated from online sources and social networks. The published Grid "represents the democratic voice of real business and IT users, rather than subjective opinion of one analyst," according to G2 Crowd.

Widen's G2 Crowd reviewers include longstanding Widen customers and models of DAM success:

"Customer service, responsiveness, fantastic UI, free upgrades, competitive pricing, and a perfect mix of simplicity and granularity. All of these are strengths of the Widen Media Collective. They are world class in all aspects of DAM and DAM support." - Corey Chimko, Digital Resources Coordinator at Cornell University Photography.

"Widen as a business is amazing to work with. Their team is extremely knowledgeable and is by your side every step of the way through implementation, as well as use after implementation. We have had our DAM through Widen for 10 years and have been extremely pleased with the relationship through the entire time. Their customer support is the best I've experienced both in my business life as well as my personal life. Simply superb each and every time I need them." - Valerie DeCleene, Marketing Communications Graphic Designer at Brady Corporation.  

"We are so grateful to all our customers who shared their experiences on G2 Crowd and helped us top the DAM rankings," said Matthew Gonnering, CEO of Widen. "Our company has evolved so much over the past 67 years, and we're motivated to see that Media Collective has won the highest satisfaction scores of any vendor in our industry. This first Grid report is a testament to the vital role that DAM software plays in the modern marketing ecosystem."
