New publishing platform
DC Thomson collaborated with Better than Paper to produce Scot News, a live content platform that is accessible 24/7 on mobile, tablet and desktop. The news platform publishes the latest Scottish news from across DC Thomson’s news titles, with all curated content, neatly packaged into a single, constantly updating publication.
As the platform publishes in real time – this ensures that it’s packed with the latest new content from a variety of sources.

The rapid development of publishing platforms on both app and desktop, have given DC Thomson a powerful tool to unlock the value of their editorial content quickly and cost effectively – with no additional development work required. A single CMS updates all devices automatically – without having to download new updates or design new issues. Additional features include integrated advertising, offline capability, in-app purchases, real-time analytics, and reader personalisation options.
DC Thomson are using Better than Paper’s publishing solution, their out of the box real-time publishing platform streamlines the production process and reduces the need for costly bespoke development across both mobile and web. I would recommend Better than Paper solution to publishers looking to rapidly roll-out digital titles cost-effectively across multiple digital platforms
