converging print and digital

Aria for Media and Publishing

Aria is unique in managing the monetization of both physical and digital assets as a single convergent service.

Combining ownership and access business models

Staying relevant in today’s landscape and monetizing investments in news and content requires publishing companies to bring the agility of digital into the print market. To effectively serve both print and digital customers, they must offer both ownership and access consumption models. They need a common and coordinated platform that can harness operational efficiencies to deliver premium services and superior customer care.
