NEWSCYCLE Solutions (“NEWSCYCLE”) has signed an agreement with Polaris Media to deliver NEWSCYCLE Content to Harstad Tidende Gruppen and also a renewed and expanded co-operation with Polaris Media Nordvestlandet. Harstad Tidende Gruppen is covering communities in Nordland and Troms, and Polaris Media Nordvestlandet has a strong market position in the northwestern districts of Norway. The contract includes an option for NEWSCYCLE Digital to be added at a later date.
Harstad Tidende Gruppen is replacing a home-grown system with NEWSCYCLE Content— delivering a proven, modern multichannel publishing platform to support the company’s digital strategies. For both Polaris Media Nordvestlandet and Harstad Tidende Gruppen, NEWSCYCLE Content will be used in addition to existing NEWSCYCLE Advertising software to help create and deliver content to any print or digital channel from a centralized database. The system also supports their current digital content preparation and distribution.
“Shifts in the media industry and the marketplace were the main drivers for exploring more efficient editorial systems that take advantage of layout driven production and geometries,” said Harald H. Rise, CEO and group director/EVP, Harstad Tidende Gruppen and Polaris Media Nordvestlandet. “A key factor in choosing NEWSCYCLE Content was also the solutions digital capabilities. After considerable research, we determined that NEWSCYCLE’s capabilities and experience are best suited for our mediahouses' publishing needs.”
