Widen Brings DAM lite to Small Businesses With Smartimage Version 4.0

Smartimage Version 4.0 Looks to Be the Image Management "Porridge" That's "Just Right" for Small Businesses and Teams Between Consumer File Sharing Tools and Digital Asset Management Systems

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2014) - Widen Enterprises announced today the release of Smartimage version 4.0, a solution for simple, cloud-based image management. As small businesses continue to create more visual content, Smartimage looks to empower use of those images with simple management and distribution. The most recent enhancements to the solution include public and custom portals, batch editing and quick search.

The product has been guided by user feedback and Widen's 15 years of experience in the digital asset management (DAM) space. What originated as a brand kit solution back in February 2013 has developed into a DAM lite solution to manage all of a small business' or small team's final images.

"We've found that small businesses and teams are looking for something simple, professional and affordable," said Kara Bubb, Smartimage product manager. "Many are looking for more control and flexibility than what personal tools provide, and they don't need or can't afford all the functionality of a true DAM solution. Smartimage makes the most essential and useful DAM components accessible."

Smartimage enables small businesses to address their image management needs in a simple, time saving way. Automatic file conversions and auto-mapping embedded metadata help streamline the process. Users can view, share and download images in a visual, branded tool.

Admins need a simple, easy way to share collections of content with various groups. The release of public and custom portals enables them to share select content with specific groups via custom URLs. Expirable links make it easy to control access to portals.

The version 4.0 features round out Smartimage's offering to centralize and share images simply.

  • Public and custom portals - Create links to share collections of content.
  • Batch editing - Select multiple files to edit metadata and organize.
  • Quick search - Fast search results paired with file type and keyword filters.
  • Enhanced app speed - A new backend structure provides an even faster user experience.
  • New subscription plans - Increased storage offerings allow for greater scalability.
