At the morn­ing meet­ing, more and more news­rooms go through the pre­vi­ous day's cen­tral sta­tis­tics from the web, such as the num­ber of pub­lished ar­ti­cles and their sources.

The same kind of sta­tis­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion can al­so be ob­tained re­gard­ing the print­ed news­pa­per with Neo's au­to­mat­ic re­port­ing.

This means that the print­ed news­pa­per's cen­tral key fig­ures are al­ways avail­able and can, for ex­am­ple, be com­pared with the in­for­ma­tion on ar­ti­cles pub­lished on­line.

Neo's au­to­mat­ic re­port col­lects in­for­ma­tion every day about, among oth­er things

– print­ed quan­ti­ty of the news­pa­per's ar­ti­cle and pic­ture
– ad per­cent­age and
– the dis­tri­b­u­tion of ar­ti­cles, im­ages and graph­ics in dif­fer­ent sec­tions.

It al­so shows
– what part of the print­ed news­pa­per's ar­ti­cles, pic­tures and graph­ics have been the ed­i­tor's own pro­duc­tion or come from part­ners or news agen­cies, and
– how pub­lished ar­ti­cles / im­ages / graph­ics are dis­trib­uted to dif­fer­ent sources.

The re­port can al­so con­tain cus­tomer-spe­cif­ic in­for­ma­tion – for ex­am­ple in­for­ma­tion about the amount of news re­gard­ing dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions.

The dis­tri­b­u­tion of places can be fol­lowed ac­cord­ing to the news­pa­per's largest dis­tri­b­u­tion places or dis­tricts, if the news­pa­per marks them as the place for the ar­ti­cles.

All in­for­ma­tion in the re­port can be browsed on a dai­ly, week­ly or month­ly ba­sis.

The in­for­ma­tion can be read on­line or di­rect­ly in Neo. Ac­cess to the in­for­ma­tion can be cus­tomized de­pend­ing on the user.

If the ed­i­to­r­i­al staff us­es the Shift­NG sys­tem for their work shifts, the re­port can al­so con­tain in­for­ma­tion about work shifts per­formed.

The au­to­mat­ic re­port­ing is used at Tu­run Sanomat, among oth­ers, which ac­com­pa­nies the quan­ti­ties of ar­ti­cles at var­i­ous de­part­ments.

– The re­port was use­ful most re­cent­ly when the coro­na epi­dem­ic broke out. We then need­ed to fol­low the de­vel­op­ment of the num­ber of pages when the range of sports and cul­ture changed dras­ti­cal­ly, says ed­i­tor-in-chief Kari Vainio.

– With the help of the re­port, we were able to fol­low how the de­part­ments' num­ber of pages in the print­ed news­pa­per de­vel­oped and how, for ex­am­ple, the use of free­lancers changed.
