Syndigital makes syndication very easy by providing the following components, all developed with advanced Web technology:
Subscriber module: Allowing companies and individuals to register over the Internet, and once approved, find content in services, add to own Portfolio and download for use.
Syndication editor module: Allowing editors to easily review content aggregated from various internal sources, edit if necessary, and approve for syndication.
Syndication management module: Allowing managers and marketers to manage subscribers’ accounts, track usage, create new or manage syndication services, all with a click of a button. Marketers can easily create digital newsletters and email for content on offer.
Sophisticated pricing and charging system: Allowing payment by subscription or per use, with different charging for diferent services or items in a service, for example re-publishing or research, or exclusivity.
Technology: Syndigital takes advantage of the Publish live technology to manage and search for millions of rich-media news items aggregated from multiple publishing platforms, using such technology tools as JAVA, XML and GWT, supporting English and Arabic.
