iProduction Completes Integration of Insurance Broadcasting Publications into SourceMedia Online Portfolio
Newly Acquired News Service is Fully Integrated into Online Publishing Platform In Less Than One Month
Minneapolis, Minn. iProduction, the leading Internet publishing platform for multi-title online publishers, has completed integration of the newly acquired Insurance Broadcasting publications into the SourceMedia online portfolio. SourceMedia acquired the leading employee benefits professional news service, whose titles include Insurance Broadcasting and Workplace Benefits, in February this year.
SourceMedia powers its existing 33 publications and websites, serving 2.5 million subscribers, with the iProduction Internet publishing platform. Transitioning the Insurance Broadcasting publications to the iProduction platform allowed for the integration of the sites with Employee Benefit News Group, as well as consolidated multiple systems for content management, mailing list management, and subscriber management onto a single platform.
The site now also supports blogs, videos and other editorial enhancements that deepen reader engagement and enable more sophisticated audience targeting, while the iProduction conversion architecture allows SourceMedia to better qualify readers for advertisers.
“The new processes are unbelievably efficient compared to how we used to construct and deliver information,” said Walt Podgurski, Insurance Broadcasting publisher. “The websites and online newsletter are already improved. I feel confident that things will only get better.”
