What is Digital Asset Management? Digital asset management is the process of aggregating, organizing, securing and sharing digital assets. The first digital asset manage software appeared over 20 years ago when digital assets emerged and large companies needed a way to manage all the digital assets their teams and vendors were creating. With the advent of the Cloud, digital asset management has become accessible to companies of all sizes and industries. Learn More
How has the Cloud Changed Dams? Combining the Cloud and digital asset management has made digital asset management software affordable to all companies. It has also made enterprise features such as triple redundancy, geo-replication and ISO27001 certified infrastructure accessible to small and medium sized companies.

Bob Garnett

Audit Chair

A chartered accountant by training, Bob has gone well beyond this, to the point you could call him a financial whiz. In his 45-year career, he's taken on executive roles at major public companies, turning over hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.

Aside from a hole in one, Bob is one of the very few people to have scored a double eagle.

Judi lives in North Van with family and other people’s pets. She's a former member of the Canadian National Ski Team. I know, we were surprised too!

Barry Jinks

Compensation Chair

Barry pretty much wrote the book on how to launch a technology company in Vancouver, having founded and grown several start-ups into successful businesses.

Barry is a horrible, but passionate, golfer and has just taken up boating as a new way to spend every penny he makes.

Rob Chase

Chairman of the Board

At heart, a real numbers guy, Rob spearheaded Absolute Software’s capital growth from $12M in 2000 to over $450M in 2014 by perfecting the execution of corporate strategy, acquisitions, investor relations and strategic partnerships.

Rob was named one of Vancouver’s Top Forty Under 40 (when he was still under 40) but he remains grounded by his two boys, ages 6 and 9, who are never shy to outdo him in all family activities from surfing and playing guitar to speaking French and eating tacos.

Vancouver, BC – February 8th, 2018 – MediaValet Inc. (TSX-V:MVP) (the “Company”), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management software, announces that the Board of Directors has appointed Rob Chase to the role of Executive Chairman of the Board. Since February 2015, Rob has held the position of Non-Executive Chairman of the Board.

In this new day-to-day operational role, Mr. Chase will oversee the Company’s Finance, Accounting, Investor Relations, and M&A activities, and will focus on driving shareholder value. Mr. Chase has extensive experience in these areas as well as within sales and marketing, customer success, business development and corporate strategy. This transition coincides with the retirement plans of the Company’s former CFO as he transitions out of the business.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to work more closely with MediaValet’s senior team during these exciting times,” said Mr. Chase. “Over the past three years as Non-Executive Chairman, I have had the opportunity to see first-hand the great work that the team is doing and this opportunity allows me to share my experience and expertise on a day-to-day basis as the Company accelerates its growth. I have also gained a deep understanding of the market opportunity, the team and the product, and I am confident this will allow me to jump right in and add value immediately. It’s clear to me that MediaValet has an amazing opportunity ahead of it and the team to make it happen.”

Mr. Chase held the CFO and COO positions for Absolute Software from 2000 to 2014, and was a key member of the leadership team that grew the company from $4 million to nearly $100 million in annual sales over 14 years. In his capacity at Absolute Software, Mr. Chase completed a number of acquisitions and led many functions of the organization including finance, marketing, business development, channel, customer support, legal and HR. Mr. Chase was also a Board member for PNI Digital Media from January 2013 until sale of the company in July 2014, helping the company return to growth, fund its operations, and ultimately maximize shareholder value through a sale to Staples, delivering an increase in share price from $0.20 to $1.70 over his tenure.

“I am honored to have Rob join our operational team and help us scale the business and drive shareholder value over the coming year,” commented David MacLaren, CEO of MediaValet. “With the global digital asset management industry expected to increase US$6 billion over the next 4 years and MediaValet poised to grow rapidly to meet the new demand, we expect to face many challenges that Rob has experienced before. Having Rob part of our operational team will help us prepare and tackle these challenges head on. The team and I are truly excited for what lays head for MediaValet in 2018.”

MediaValet launches new Content Publishing and Analytics Platform
Vancouver, BC – December 6th, 2017 – MediaValet Inc. (TSX-V:MVP), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management software, today announced the launch of its innovative new Content Publishing and Engagement Analytics platform. MediaValet’s customers can now publish media assets directly from within MediaValet to an unlimited number of owned and 3rd party digital channels, track extensive usage data, and analyze the impact of each asset, channel, and campaign.

Vancouver, BC – December 6th, 2017 – MediaValet Inc. (TSX-V:MVP), a leading provider of cloud-based digital asset management software, today announced the launch of its innovative new Content Publishing and Engagement Analytics platform. MediaValet’s customers can now publish media assets directly from within MediaValet to an unlimited number of owned and 3rd party digital channels, track extensive usage data, and analyze the impact of each asset, channel, and campaign.

MediaValet’s new Publishing and Analytics platform, enables organizations to streamline their content distribution and optimize their marketing spend on both media creation and placement. Directly from within MediaValet, authorized users can now select an asset and generate the embed code necessary to easily stream the asset to any owned or 3rd party digital channels and web properties. The resulting usage data is tracked and charted by MediaValet’s Engagement Analytics platform.

To support and optimize how marketing teams work today, MediaValet’s Content Publishing platform allows customers to publish assets across an unlimited number of digital channels and web properties from a single, centralized location. This single-point-of-distribution approach to publishing media assets will help organizations control their brand integrity, create operational efficiencies and increase marketing ROI.

Once code is embedded, it begins collecting information on how an asset is being viewed and how often. User engagement data, from all embed locations, includes the number of unique and repeat views, and the time, minutes or pages viewed for each asset. Metrics are provided per asset, per location and per user defined campaign. Marketing teams can use the collected engagement data to identify which assets, digital channels and web properties drive the highest audience engagement, and to guide future content development.

“Digital asset management systems need to do more than simply store, manage and protect assets” commented David MacLaren, founder and CEO of MediaValet. “By enabling our customers to identify their top performing marketing assets and digital channels, we can help them maximize the ROI of their marketing spend, drive more sales, and increase their bottom line.”

Continued MacLaren, “We’re excited to launch another innovative solution that makes marketers’ lives easier, helps achieve business objectives, and drives business forward.”

MediaValet’s Content Publishing and Analytics platform is now available to all customers. The base package, free to all, provides Engagement Minutes to support several campaigns per month. For those that want to purchase additional Engagement Minutes, packages are available.
