Newsroom Solutions

Roxen’s Newsroom Solutions are based on the lean concept and customized to your needs. One of the effects of applying Lean in publishing is that the workflow is streamlined and that every step in the process is performed only once. By separating design from content creation and the introduction of template-based layouts – in all channels, more time can be spent writing, editing and designing feature-rich pages. The same staff can populate more products with more editorial content.

Roxen’s products for production, management and publishing of editorial content are the center of Roxen’s Newsroom Solutions. Our completely web-based tools make it possible to work from anywhere, anytime. The system is extremely easy to use, making the transition to lean publishing effortless.

Analytics

In order to improve and leverage your position online, it is important to measure who is consuming what content, from where, on what device and when.

With real-time analytics you will know your audience better, you will directly see which stories that engage and you will over time have the opportunity to serve targeted reading suggestions and ads and, by better knowing your audience, you will become better at articulating the value of your audience to advertisers.

As part of our offering, we integrate market leading technologies like Chartbeat and Cxense in order to help publishers get on top of the information, including training and setting of simple standardized dashboards that help teams focus on, and measure, audience engagement.
