SDL (LSE: SDL), a global leader in content creation, translation and delivery, today announces a strategic partnership with Bynder, and the availability of a new SDL Tridion Sites 9.1 Connector for Bynder’s Digital Asset Management (DAM) platform. Developed by SDL’s partner, Trivident, the Connector allows customers to centrally manage, easily discover, directly access and deliver any type of digital asset to worldwide audiences.
Consumer demand for interactive, engaging content – from videos to virtual reality – is at an all-time high. The majority (93%) of marketers see interactive content as effective, and despite making it a priority, they’re struggling to deliver large volumes of rich media content, across multiple formats, languages and devices. SDL’s partnership with Bynder offers customers an easy way to manage their entire digital content supply chain by directly connecting SDL Tridion Sites, a Web Content Management (WCM) platform, to Bynder’s DAM system, where all rich media content is in one place, easy to find and managed centrally.
“Brands struggle with how to efficiently manage and share content at a global scale,” said Brad Kofoed, Vice President Global Alliances, Bynder. “Our partnership with Trivident and SDL simplifies the entire process from creation to translation and delivery. By shrinking the time between inception and distribution, brands can more easily enter new geographic markets and successfully reach new potential customers.”
SDL Tridion Sites allows users to effectively manage a multitude of digital properties, and scales to any number of sites, channels, languages and brands. With the SDL Tridion Connector to Bynder DAM, customers can manage their Bynder-stored digital media (images, videos, and documents) directly in SDL Tridion Sites 9.1. Access to all content in one place saves time searching assets, and stakeholders can work confidently knowing that stored files are always on the latest version, reducing errors and duplication. Any piece of content can be directly used and published, or first sent for translation through SDL Tridion Sites 9.1, and published across 180+ languages.
“Digital assets are a critical component for every digital touchpoint, offering huge potential in transforming a one-time visitor into a loyal customer and brand advocate,” said Ron Grisnich, Co-founder of Trivident, an SDL partner. “We’re proud to have built a Connector that helps customers make the most of their content’s potential. The combination of Bynder’s DAM, alongside SDL Tridion Sites 9.1, gives companies a powerful foundation for growth, and our combined vision offers an exciting opportunity for ambitious brands looking to engage on a truly global scale.”
“While most companies focus on a handful of markets, there’s a huge opportunity to launch in dozens of markets quickly, test the water and focus your sales strategy accordingly. This omni-market approach is what makes the difference among top brands,” said Jim Saunders, Chief Product Officer. “We’re excited by our partnership, and combined vision to give customers the tools they need to build their own content ecosystems that support the delivery of any type of content, in any language, to any connected device.”
Available through the SDL AppStore, and Bynder’s Integration Center, the Connector uses the new SDL Tridion Integration Framework, which allows companies to more easily connect SDL Tridion Sites 9.1 to any DAM, CRM, Analytics, ERP, Marketing Automation, or other system.
