SAN MATEO, CA, April 28, 2016 — Webdam, a leader in digital asset management and a Shutterstock company, today announced the release of new features to build on the Webdam brand-management solution Brand Connect that further simplify and automate brand management tasks.

Webdam Brand Connect provides a smart solution for building, organizing and distributing brand assets and guidelines providing more control for geographically dispersed teams. The new features include social, analytic and automation tools to further simplify brand-management across dozens of channels and platforms.

“Many companies are struggling to manage their brands in this new digital environment,” said Jody Vandergriff, co-founder and CEO of Webdam. “They rely on static brand guidelines in PDF documents that become outdated quickly, and distribute creative assets through network servers or cloud storage that put an immense burden on marketing teams to approve and fulfill requests. Brand Connect and these newly launched features equip teams with smarter, simpler technology built for digital marketing.”

Webdam Brand Connect now features:

  • Analytics – graphically displays key measures and trends to better understand asset feedback and use.
  • Embargo Date – automatically synchronizes the release of materials with role-based access controls at the folder and asset level.
  • Image Carousel – schedules the rotation of images, videos or other visual assets across multiple end-points from a central source.
  • Social features – likes and comments allow community members to interact with assets in new ways bringing their collective wisdom to asset management and selection.
