NEW YORK (PrintMedia Conference & Expo) - March 7, 2005 - SAVVIS Communications, a leading global IT utility, today announced the availability of the WAM!NET Content Submission Portal. This new service offers companies that receive large volumes of digital media a simple, efficient, and secure way to receive content through a single, customer-branded, web-based submission portal. It is being demonstrated at the PrintMedia Conference & Expo (WAM!NET booth #423) at the New York Hilton this week.
WAM!NET, a division of SAVVIS, is a leading global provider of shared services for content management, archiving and delivery, and enterprise networking. WAM!NET services enable customers to streamline workflows, enhance collaboration, increase productivity, protect and preserve valuable content, and realize an immediate return on their digital media investment.
The Content Submission Portal enables publishers, marketing departments, ad agencies, printers and media companies to realize new workflow efficiencies through controlled content submission. Partners, vendors, freelancers and clients can easily submit and verify delivery of digital content using this simple on-line portal. The Content Submission Portal automates and simplifies the submission process and eliminates the inefficiencies of receiving content from multiple sources such as CD, email, and ftp. Further streamlining the process, content coming through the portal can be directed to one or more locations based on pre-configured settings such as authentication, user type, destination, job ticket, and upload method.
"Publishers today spend too much time gathering digital images from multiple sources which need to be sorted and organized in an inefficient and sometimes difficult process. Typically, this content has no information or metadata associated with it making the review process even more challenging," said Melissa Fox, Director of Marketing for SAVVIS. "With our Content Submission Portal, digital images are submitted, with identifying metadata, to one location where they can be easily reviewed, organized, and distributed."
Customers can easily integrate the Content Submission Portal into their existing networks. It is an online subscription-based service so no additional hardware or software is required. The service is supported by WAM!NET’s centralized service administration for instantaneous updates and control. As with all WAM!NET services, the Content Submission Portal service includes 24x7 service monitoring, customer service, technical support and disaster recovery.
