Brampton, Ontario – November 3, 2021 – DATA Communications Management Corp. (TSX: DCM) (“DCM” or the “Company”), a leading provider of marketing and business communication solutions to companies across North America, is pleased to announce it will be deploying ASMBL, an end-to-end solution for marketing workflow and asset management, to one of Canada’s preeminent technology retailers. ASMBL will enable our client to create, execute, price-validate and traffic all promotional material including flyers, POP, web assets, and social and display media.
Today’s increasingly complex marketing environment—more channels, more campaigns, more segmented marketing with varying terms and conditions—makes managing communications and ensuring consistency a major operational hurdle. It also increases risks around data security and regulatory compliance.
ASMBL overcomes those challenges by centralizing and securing crucial marketing workflows and digital assets, from documents and photos to artwork and videos. Assets can be uploaded, created, edited, and distributed. They’re securely stored, and metadata-tagged for fast searching and sharing. Built-in version control ensures only the most recent file is displayed. Previous campaigns are easy to retrieve and replicate, while validation of elements like pricing across different assets is automatic.
As a result, marketing activity is more visible and trackable across all business lines and channels, both print and digital. There’s also greater peace of mind around legal and government compliance—ensuring accuracy of regional terms and conditions, for example, or safeguarding non-disclosure agreements. The enhanced efficiency reduces the reliance on employee effort. And the solution is technology-agnostic and can accommodate a virtually unlimited volume of assets and campaigns.
From a working standpoint, users of the solution can, as an example:
- Create a personalized flyer using approved assets
- Version it for different regions, syncing price and core messaging while complying with regional terms and conditions
- Deploy it across digital and print channels
- Update it any time and cascade all changes automatically across all impacted assets
- Gather insight on its effectiveness at different touchpoints, informing future planning and budgeting
- View history and inventory, placing new orders using dynamic pricing
“Marketing teams are being asked to do more with less, but without sacrificing consistency or quality,” said Richard Kellam, President & CEO of DCM. “ASMBL increases their capacity and accuracy — the automation and built-in analytics help them perform essential tasks more efficiently and correctly, which in turn can have a huge impact on a company’s ability to seize new opportunities and grow.”
DCM has signed a four-year agreement; ASMBL is scheduled for launch early in 2022.
