bb Blanc's Challenges
Disorganized Content Management
bb Blanc was founded in 2008 and went more than five years without centralizing their digital assets.
As an expanding company, with years' worth of events under their belt, they were struggling to manage their growing collection of assets. They needed a solution that could store and organize images, sales pieces, marketing materials and more securely distribute them to clients and team members.
“We were producing such amazing events, but we were really struggling to showcase them.”
Cierra Colelli, BB Blanc
bb Blanc was facing a number of challenges that were impacting their business and hindering their ability to scale.
1. Inefficient Storage
With ten years' worth of events under their belt (at the time), bb Blanc had amassed a vast collection of content that they were struggling to store efficiently.
2. Poor Accessibility
The company was struggling to enable easy or secure asset accessibility to their remote teams working across Canada.
bb Blanc was finding that clients were becoming overwhelmed or unable to download large files and the folders of assets that they required.
4. Inconsistent Branding
Despite their best efforts, there were persistent issues in maintaining a consistent brand image across all their marketing and sales materials.
The team at bb Blanc realized that they needed to find a solution to better centralize their finalized content and connect it with their clients without confusion.
Searching for a Solution
Researching the best options
It was time to build a central repository for their huge asset library and to enable better processes for their internal teams and client communication.
bb Blanc began their search for the right digital asset management solution to address their challenges. Based on their research, they formulated a list of the must-have features they needed.
1. Unlimited Asset Storage
bb Blanc wanted to securely store all their content in one centralized location, ensuring easy access for their team, no matter where they were in the world.
They also wanted to prepare for the further expansion of their team. With ten years’ worth of event imagery, videos, and other files already accumulated, implementing a system that could house their further growth was crucial.
2. AI-Powered Categorization and Tagging
The team wanted to ensure they could automatically categorize and tag their assets within the solution to make it simple and streamlined for team members to find the content they need.
It was important that their team could quickly find and share assets to clearly communicate value with prospective clients, and to retain satisfied clients.
3. Secure Distribution
bb Blanc was looking for a way to share curated collections of assets with clients and consultants, and with internal teams in a professional and secure manner.
Their team and clients were scattered across Canada and ensuring that they could deliver content in a timely manner without compromising on security was an essential aspect of the software they chose.
4. Branding Consistency and Customization
It was essential for them to maintain a consistent brand across all their own materials, but to also ensure tailored experiences for their clients.
As an incredibly visual business, presenting assets to prospective clients and collaborating internally on the best content was super important.
It was time to assess digital asset management (DAM) systems, what they offered, how the vendor could scale as the agency grew, and how impactful the options could be for their business.
Enter MediaValet, a platform that provided bb Blanc with the tools they needed to not only overcome, but to surpass their challenges.
