Neo is not unknown to Fokus Media, as Neo has been in use as an external service for some of Fokus Media’s magazines. In the near future, this new agreement extends Neo multi-channel publishing platform to be used in all of the magazines published by Fokus Media.

The system will be hosted from Anygraaf’s SaaS platform with direct connections to Fokus Media’s departments. Also, the publications’ net services are delivered to the Internet from Anygraaf’s SaaS service.

The schedule for bringing Neo into production is tight: first magazines will start to use Neo for multi-channel publishing still during this year and the rest of the magazines will go live during spring 2018.

"In Fokus Media it’s now time to unify separate production systems, and we have ended up choosing Neo and Anygraaf”, comments Tapani Pitzen, managing director of Fokus Media Finland Oy.

“High in our selection criteria were multi-channel publishing and digital marketing as well as related search engine optimization and -marketing. Fokus Media and Anygraaf carried together out the auditing of NeoDirect publishing platform by a third party. The result of this audit was a strong proof that NeoDirect publishing platform was suitable to be a part of Fokus Media’s digital strategy.”
