5 fifteen announces partnership with Audience Media S.L to sell its unique content management system

31st August 2012

5 fifteen, a leading UK software company supplying publishers throughout the world, has today announced a partnership with Barcelona-based Audience Media to sell its world-class cloud-based Content Management System (CMS).

The Audience Media Content Management System is a unique web-based system that enables publishers to edit content from one centralised CMS, which can then be used to publish to multi-media platforms. Editorial, design, production and commercial teams can work together to cost-effectively deliver content for websites, tablets, mobile devices, newsletters, email marketing, print production and subscription management from one set or versions of the data. In addition, social media updates can be created in advance and pushed out automatically when news becomes live.

Merv Griffin, sales and marketing director at 5 fifteen explains, "This development represents a major advance in CMS for publishers. Working in partnership with Audience Media we are offering publishers the ability to drive out costs associated with maintaining numerous IT solutions by providing a cloud-based storage source for data for all the applications they may require."

"This unique and integrated approach to handling multiple publishing platforms - whether it is in print, on the web or for mobile devices - really focuses on the business needs of the organisation. Having everything managed for you in one place provides total efficiency and real peace-of-mind in the fast-paced publishing industry."

Users can control, plan and deliver publications while enjoying the benefits of real-time analytics and usage-data to track website click-throughs and advertising effectiveness. All platforms are supported and as part of the inexpensive monthly fee the publisher also enjoys web hosting, all system management, 24/7 support and digital design services, further eliminating the need for separate resources.

Griffin concludes, "Our highly skilled personnel bring a lifetime of experience in the magazine and newspaper publishing business to actively promote this exciting new product to existing customers and prospects throughout the world. We very much look forward to the new opportunities it will bring to 5 fifteen and the benefits it will have for our customers with the integration of the analytics into the 5 fifteen ad DEPOT platform."

The Audience Media-CMS is widely used and is already delivering proven results to B2B, consumer and custom publishers across 11 countries including IDG Group (http://www.cio.co.ke/) and brands such as BBC GoodFood, CIO, ELLE, Grazia, Hello! and National Geographic Traveller.
