Reuters has announced plans to enhance its Reuters Connect platform with a Productivity Suite of apps offering creation, production and editing services from a range of partners.
The digital content platform currently houses more than 15 million items from the Reuters newsroom and other media organisations.
Production partners joining the platform later this year include video marketplace Stringr, rights-cleared music space Amper Music and online editing tool InVideo.
Sue Brooks, Reuters product and agency MD, said: “I am incredibly excited to announce the latest phase in the evolution of Reuters Connect.
“We have created the Productivity Suite in response to feedback from our customers, who have said they want simple, easy-to-use production tools and content in one place.
“Our ‘one stop shop’ for content professionals is expanding and I am delighted to welcome Stringr, Amper Music and InVideo into our emporium! These are the first service partners we are announcing, as we set about providing an ‘end-to-end’ experience – from planning to post production tools – that helps our clients deliver brilliant content and boost productivity,” she added.
“We are delighted to partner with Reuters and bring our intelligent video maker to publishers across the globe,” said InVideo CEO and co-founder Sanket Shah. “This partnership will bring transformative tools in the hands of every content creator who now can be a video creator and multiply their reach and impact.”
