Shared content across all sites

Content is gathered in a neutral form, packaged with related material and enhanced with tags in a single location and then published across any and all properties automatically.

UGC captured digitally and reused for print

Trusted PRs, official press offices, Schools and clubs, Freelance staff and Village Correspondents author content for digital and also directly to pages or sections within print products. This has brought about a much higher volume of UGC in products than was originally thought possible and 70% of certain print titles are automatically 'laid out' by contributors.

200+ mobile sites

In recognition of the growing trend for consuming content on mobile devices Johnston Press selected Atex for delivery to these devices. The sites feature news, sport, lifestyle and community content and are specifically designed to cater for smartphones’ screen sizes and device functionality. Single source content is automatically delivered from Atex Digital Media without need to replicate. The group’s new ‘Find it’ directory is also embedded within the mobile sites, enabling users to search for and explore local businesses and services whilst on the move.
