Detroit, MI / Jenkintown, PA (November 14, 2014) — WoodWing Software and MEI have established a partnership to market WoodWing´s multi-channel publishing solution Enterprise and its digital asset management application Elvis DAM in North America. With this move, WoodWing continues to expand its footprint in the United States and Canada.

MEI offers its own products and services ranging from ad-layout software for small-scale shops to enterprise asset and workflow management for multi-national operations.

The solutions offered by the two partners cover all tasks in the respective workflows – from planning and creation to publication, archiving and re-purposing of content.

“Heading into its 25th year in business, MEI has a long history of implementing and supporting numerous systems. We managed to be on top of the transition from paper to pixels, and we continue to help our customers to profit from the 21st-century information revolution,” said Mark Leister, senior vice president of business development at MEI. “In this context, the addition of WoodWing’s products is a perfect complement to our portfolio. We call it Power of Choice, our commitment to giving customers best-of-breed workflow solutions to meet their diverse needs.”
