New product helps publishers automate the delivery of well-packaged content to their mobile first audience

Perfect for creating news walls for companies, events or for powering content delivery for your mobile App

3D Issue, a platform for creating and publishing interactive digital content, has launched a new content aggregation and delivery product, Hubs. Hubs enables publishers to extract content from any online source, CRM or social feed; then instantly delivers that content into a responsive web publication or mobile App.

Hubs has already been implemented by leading digital media powerhouses such as the eBay who use it as an interactive communication tool for their employees and the Chicago Sun Times who use the Hubs technology to power one hundred automated regional news Apps for each major city in the US.

As mobile dominates web traffic, Hubs help publishers maximise the value and exposure of their content by reaching new markets and allowing their audience to access all related content in one place. Hubs offers simultaneous access to blogs, news, alerts and feeds, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and more. Hubs requires no maintenance as it uses existing channels, automatically monitoring the sources, pushing new content directly into the content Hub.

3D Issue has added Hubs to its expanding suite of content marketing tools which includes Flipbooks, eBooks and mobile apps with over 10,000 customers in over 100 countries. Paul McNulty, founder and CEO of 3D Issue, commented:

“At 3D Issue, we understand the growing demands of implementing an effective mobile marketing strategy on our customers, Hubs is a clear demonstration of this. We see aggregation as the integral part of the mobile centric content marketing experience and we’re proud to be at the cutting edge of this trend.”

“Hubs is an easy to use tool that allows you to package your content in a matter of seconds. Simply select your sources and click build. The result is an auto-updating publication that provides live up-to-date content on demand. Perfect for creating news walls for companies, events or for powering content delivery for your mobile App.

US daily newspaper Chicago-Sun Times is now using Hubs to power hundreds of regional news Apps across the United States. The newspaper had conducted detailed research into the use of aggregation technology and had considered developing its own solution before deciding that our Hubs product could fully satisfy its requirements.”

Timothy Landon, CEO of the Sun Times Network, said:

“We believe media and news is best executed as a mix of aggregated, curated and original content as, in the end, customers and readers want well organised information delivered to them in a variety of ways.

The Chicago-Sun Times already features a number of specialist technologies to improve user experience and Hubs integrates well with our existing technology stack. As a result of using Hubs, our audience has more than doubled in 90 days and that upwards trend is continuing.”
