Press release from the issuing company

Detroit, MI / Minneapolis, MN With Elvis DAM, WoodWing offers a modern digital asset management solution trusted by a wide variety of customers worldwide, covering publishing, advertising and communications, retail, fashion, manufacturing, the public sector and more industries. Elvis DAM is known for its high performance and ease of use, its low cost of ownership, as well its open architecture for optimal integration and scalability. The upcoming version 5 of Elvis DAM will enable customers to manage up to 1 billion digital assets.

However, a successful digital asset management initiative requires more than just powerful, easy to use software – it also needs a defined strategy how to store, tag and manage the exploding numbers of digital assets in various formats. “The technical implementation of a DAM solution is just one side of the story. The strategic part, the implementation of the DAM process, is just as important – and it starts well before choosing the software,“ said Jim Laib, CIO of Allied Vaughn. “Leveraging our comprehensive experience with DAM in demanding environments, we help organizations to identify their individual DAM requirements and to develop their DAM strategy, prior to the software purchase. After the actual installation, we make sure our clients can quickly return to focusing on their actual business, fully exploiting the benefits of Elvis DAM.“

Elvis DAM provides the ideal platform to deliver on this promise.“

Allied Vaughn works for a variety of clients including Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Warner Brothers, AC Delco and MGM. For General Motors, the team represents the entire GM Media Archive Group, managing all the content going into the DAM, train users training on the DAM, develop taxonomy and metadata strategies, define and manage the workflows, work with their ad agencies for content acquisition and distribution, and more.
