Health fund CM is currently work to migrate its current websites to a new Content Management System with a corresponding Digital Asset Management solution. After a lengthy evaluation process of considering references, technical qualities and price, Catena Company was identified as the best DAM partner.
CM faced numerous challenges. There was the migration to the new CMS system, plus the need for the new system to communicate flawlessly with a new DAM. Where you have a larger organisation, you have a harder time maintaining oversight of your assets, particularly when you start to cross language borders. Before the project, CM did not have a DAM system.
But that’s not where establishing a new DAM system ends. Not only do the look and feel need to match CM’s corporate identity, but the system needs to be as user friendly as possible. With this in mind, the next phase looked at images, sliders and tiles to enhance the user experience even further.
Considering the number of CM employees and the various profiles that will work with the DAM in the future, clear agreements were needed relating to user permissions. This involved dividing users into groups and profiles. Groups determine who is permitted to see what, while profiles determine who can do what. Consequently, a group comprises multiple profiles.
The final step was to implement single sign-on, allowing users to log in with their work e-mail address and password without having to have an account beforehand. Not only is this a more secure method, but it immediately assigns the default permissions to a new account. This saves administrators considerable time as they do not have to process each account separately to assign permissions.
