Digital Asset Management

Online Newsrooms are essential in Automotive PR crises

In an era where the public sources news from both traditional and emerging media, including social media, automotive companies must rethink how they handle crises swiftly and effectively. The last three years have seen industry giants like Volkswagen, Tesla, Toyota, and Subaru navigating significant PR challenges. These examples underscore the necessity for a robust, next-generation online newsroom equipped with an integrated Digital Asset Management (DAM) system, enabling 24/7 secure self-service for journalists.
