OpenMedia is an innovative, fully customisable, scalable newsroom system with 50,000+ users globally. The newsroom system is used around the world and is the most optimal tool for cross-media research, planning, and the creation of daily news, magazines, and sports publications.

The work gets completed more quickly, and is often more elaborate.
