The insights behind the project

Polish Press Agency (PAP) is the single largest source of news from Poland with over 250 reporters and 40 photojournalists delivering accurate and comprehensive news to leading media outlets, government, and financial institutions, investors, and entrepreneurs in and outside of Poland.

A thorough analysis showed that the PAP needed support for significantly high usage volumes in terms of users and of handled content. Moreover, they were looking for a single, easy to use, platform for handling all types of multimedia to secure operational improvement, along with reliable remote access capabilities for regional corresponders.

Under this scope, IoC was asking for a way to categorize, archive, and manage a vast wealth of digitized magazines, publications, listings, radio, and television spots from 1940 to the present.

What we did for the client

In 2008, the Polish Press Agency (PAP) trusted Athens Technology Center (ATC) and newsasset platform (Agency edition), and replaced the old editorial system (KWAZAR) with a common Content Hub that converges editorial production for Print, Digital, Radio, TV and News Agencies and fully supports the production, management, and distribution of news.

A specialized Events module played a vital role for PAP users to handle all news stories planning process. Via this module, the users have the ability to assign Events to Departments and People, accompanied by the capability to monitor news production according to deadlines set.

In addition, users had the chance to exploit sophisticated technology for searching, retrieving, filtering, shorting, previewing, and monitoring digital and news assets across the platform.

Several APIs used to allow integration with other existing systems and a web access subsystem was implemented, providing full editorial and news coverage functionality even remotely.

The outcome

PAP teams now enjoy a complete and secure system for management, delivery, and storage, of sensitive information, handling large volumes of data in various forms, while also exploiting events handling and news planning process. Moreover, newsasset platform allows PAP teams to meet the demands of both traditional customers and electronic media since it supports powerful content reception and automated distribution to multiple channels.

PAP also acquired a system with reasonable TCO; an agile, open-architecture platform, fully expandable to meet any additional future requirement, that ensures a quick return on the investment and its long-lasting duration.
