SAN MATEO, CA, May 22, 2012—Webdam Solutions, the leader in cloud-based digital asset management (DAM), today announced record-breaking growth in higher education – results that further support the company’s reputation as the best web-based DAM provider for colleges and universities. Since 2010, the Webdam customer base among educational institutions has more than doubled.
In just the first week of 2012’s Q2, the number of new higher education accounts signed exceeded 2011’s entire Q2. In recent weeks, Webdam added St. Mary’s College of California, UC Riverside, University of Dayton, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, and St. Leo University to its higher education accounts. All selected Webdam as their digital asset management solution following a careful evaluation and selection process.
“Today, Webdam’s fast-growing customer list is saturated with top-tier colleges and universities,” says Jody Vandergriff, Webdam Cofounder. “We’re proud that our customers include many distinguished schools spanning small private institutions through large, nationally ranked universities.”
Higher education institutions select Webdam due to the company’s leading expertise within the sector. During its infancy, Webdam was designed specifically for the unique workflows and challenges in higher education. From public availability of photographs and marketing assets to logistical bottlenecks with image requests and limited IT resources, a turn-key and cloud-based solution best handles the DAM challenges faced by media relations and other university departments.
“This is a DAM excellent product and is supported by a fantastic, responsive staff,” says Bryan Coalt of Miami University. “This system has everything we were looking for in a digital asset management solution.”
Continuous feedback and further development continues to come from relevant sources aligned with higher education culture. For example, Webdam provides integration with many open-source solutions and is an active partner and sponsor of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), a professional association serving educational institutions and the advancement of higher education. The Webdam customer community is compiled of prestigious schools across North America including: UC Davis, USC, Miami University, John Hopkins University, University of Washington, Penn State, Case Western Reserve University, University of California, University of Maryland, DePaul University, University of Texas, UC Santa Cruz, UC Merced, University of Connecticut, Harvey Mudd University, Houston Community College System, Wake Forest University, Holland College, and many more.
“We understand the pain points in higher education better than anyone,” says Vandergriff. “We channel this understanding into an end-to-end solution that easily integrates into campus environments, modernizes workflows, and provides for secure asset sharing and distribution.”
