Our UK based, in-house developed, portfolio of solutions facilitate collaboration across editorial, advertising, sales and circulation workflows for newspaper and magazine publishers.
We take a partnership approach with all our clients to deliver tailored solutions that mean you can do more with less. A prime example is the collaborative course sister company Midlands News Association (MNA) has taken with its use of the Knowledge portfolio.
