Lands’ End needed to replace its outdated Digital Asset Management (DAM) system as part of an ambitious digital transformation strategy. Unable to support the expanded range and variety of assets necessary to achieve its global growth and ecommerce expansion goals, Lands’ End turned to censhare as a single, standardized source of truth for existing content.
In addition to supporting the growing ecommerce operations of Lands' End, censhare also offered the capabilities for managing printed page production – a crucial requirement for a company whose major sales channel is mail order via more than 300 catalog projects involving around 20,000 unique printed pages per year.

Tailoring DAM for the perfect fit
Richard Swaziek, Senior Director Creative Operations and Natalie Daller, Manager Digital Asset Manager for Lands’ End, speak to Josh Van Dyk as part of the censhare ecosphere days digital 2021. They discuss the journey the company took in selecting, implementing, and operating the right Digital Asset Management for their needs and the ways the system enables its users and processes.
With the help of US implementation partner Emmsphere Plus, censhare was deployed in time for Lands’ End to exit the previous system, and integrated with other tools such as Adobe® InDesign® and a Single Sign-On (SSO) server. Extensive automation and customization of the user interfaces were implemented, and more than 1.5 million digital assets with mapped metadata totalling some 25 TB of data were transferred.
Lands’ End now has a true content hub, with streamlined and efficient workflows and consistent processes. Its use of the censhare DAM has grown immensely within a year of its deployment, with nearly two million assets managed and more than 700 users working within the system, and is considering the ways in which censhare could support it the future, including automatic language translation, automated page design updates, and integration with a future Product Information Management (PIM) system to further streamline processes.
Lands’ End uses censhare DAM hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS offers a broad set of global computing, storage, database, analytics, application and deployment services that help organizations move faster, lower IT costs and scale applications.
