COMPANY DETAILS

Publisher Problems:

  • Declining print ad revenue.
  • Lack of technology knowledge to keep up with user appetite.
  • Unable to effectively monetize digital content.

SOLUTION

Our technology framework allows us to track & learn about user behaviours. This allows for more personalised service so that we could deliver the right news to the right users. We have laid the foundation in our technology framework to allow for localised and multilingual structure to cater for the diverse news reader's needs in Malaysia. Ultimately, all these are built for the purpose of having excellent user experience.
