Affino's Media SaaS evolution in pictures

Breakthrough media delivery for Affino SaaS

Affino's personalisation goes up a level with interest based personalisation and notifications

The latest Affino SaaS Updates have seen a transformation in Affino’s media capabilities, with big improvements in managing media assets and presenting them to the audiences. The biggest steps forward are the launch of the new generation Podcasting and Video Libraries. These feature fully native video and audio players, and extensive support for YouTube, Vimeo and Wistia.

 

The other area to see the biggest advances is personalisation, with the introduction of the new My Interests where users can manage their interests and receive better personalised content, including alerts sent to them on their schedule. We have also introduced the new My Library, with the ability to favourite articles, products, videos and podcasts for later reading, buying, watching and listening.

 

There have been dozens of more subtle improvements, ranging from the transformed Media Listing Design Element, through to paying for awards on or after submission, enhanced live directories and the transformation of editions deliver searchable and downloadable edition archives.

 

Below are some of the key highlights.
