- Segmented regional business units
Simplifying Digital Asset Delivery with a Unified Global Repository for Metro
Metro is a German global diversified retail and wholesale group based in Düsseldorf with stores spanning Europe, Asia, and Africa. As of 2010, Metro ranked as the fourth-largest retailer in the world based on revenue.
Facing challenges brought on by an inefficient, point-to-point digital asset management (DAM) system, Metro collaborated with EPAM to create a solution that would offer more flexibility and efficiency for content managers across the 26 countries in which Metro operates. Using its existing technology partnership with Metro and our proven ADAM expertise, EPAM helped Metro increase collaboration and DAM efficiency across all locations.
EPAM’s ADAM DAM solution for Metro has resulted in increased operational efficiency and enhanced collaboration across the client’s entire global content management infrastructure. Now, instead of relying on localized digital agencies and segmented regional business units to manage assets independently, Metro benefits from a simplified ADAM-based master system where uploading an asset one time is all it takes to serve assets globally.
