Effortless Live Reporting

Especially as a publishing house with several regional daily newspapers, it is of enormous importance to be able to address and inform the respective audiences directly. The easy handling of the Tickaroo Live Blog Tool makes it possible for news websites to provide their users with all relevant information and reports in an uncomplicated, fast and direct way. This means that readers do not miss even the smallest detail of the live news, and the traffic remains on their own website. Detailed statistics can be easily viewed and provide editors with information about which content is particularly popular with readers.

Even with all of the many newspapers reporting on their own regional stories, the fail-safe live blog software is the ideal digital publishing solution for any and every kind of live event. The Live Blog app allows multiple reporters from different locations to share live updates with their online users – and thanks to the customisable JavaScript Embed widget, all of the live blogs can be customised and presented according to each of the individual website’s style and colours. Close user experiences are created through the interaction of near minute-by-minute updates and summaries, as well as texts, images, videos and integrated social media posts.

As a result, RND's editorial teams and newsrooms can efficiently share and distribute live blog content, enhancing their collaborative efforts.
