SOS Children’s Villages International rolls out ADAM Software’s Digital Asset Management platform
Ghent, Belgium, and New York, New York – January 17, 2017 – SOS Children’s Villages today announced it is going live with a Digital Asset Management platform from ADAM Software. This will help the organization to find, foster and use the correct assets faster in their external communication, resulting in spending more time and money on helping families and children.
“After an extensive search, SOS Children Villages selected ADAM Software because of its rich out-of-the-box capabilities and open architecture,” said Thomas Rubatscher, International Director for ICT of SOS Children’s Villages. “As the DAM system had to fit into our existing application landscape, ADAM Software’s commitment to Microsoft technology and cloud infrastructure was considered another strong advantage.”
The organization had to overcome some critical challenges caused by the immense volume of assets that had to be managed in a globally relevant context. The current way of working had resulted in unacceptable turnaround times, and a general lack of information on rights clearance. However, to finance and support their work it is essential that stories, images and videos are accessible globally by fundraisers. SOS Children’s Villages decided to look for a state-of-the-art Digital Asset Management system that could make it easier to find the assets they need, handle videos easily, foster content sharing, and provide a faster, more user-friendly approach to the entire asset lifecycle.
“We are very pleased to partner with SOS Children’s Villages International,” said ADAM Software CEO Pieter Casneuf. “We recognize the important work they do in the world and we are very proud they are solving their enterprise business needs with our technology. We look forward to many years of working together.”
