Webinar Recording: The State of DAM User Adoption Today

Last month’s webinar ‘The State of DAM User Adoption Today‘ is now available to watch on YouTube.  Featuring a series of panelists including Lisa Grimm, Ian Matzen, Ralph Windsor and Henrik de Gyor, and hosted by Frank DeCarlo from RPR Graphics, the webinar represents a rare opportunity to gather a wealth of insights, tips and actionable guidance from some of the DAM industry’s foremost experts.

Aimed primarily at DAM user adoption and the challenges surrounding it, the session covers a wide range of topics including User Experience (UX), User Interface (UI), training, Change Management, targeting a DAM champion, the importance of providing device and platform-agnostic access, and effective strategies on how to build a roadmap that centres around the expectations and needs of the users themselves.

Offering candid and neutral advice, the webinar does not endorse any products or vendors, and with a series of user-submitted Q&As should prove to be a useful resource for anyone involved in onboarding users for a DAM initiative at any stage of its development lifecycle.
