BC Newsroom Distribution Service

A comprehensive enterprise news distribution service for managing and delivering BC Newsroom subscriptions

Business objectives, measured results

The BC Newsroom gives citizens and the media one place to get news, factsheets, feature stories, photos, video, audio, and access to all government social media channels. Netscribe worked with government application architects to design and develop a distributed newsroom service to extend the service by adding a subscribe feature, creating a distribution service to replace a third-party service, and building an administration tool to manage all aspects of subscription and distribution.
