Live Center overview

What is Live Center?

Live Center is a real-time live blogging solution which gives users full control of their live blog's design and provides an intuitive editor with real-time post preview.

The solution allows users to create custom post visuals and elements such as election result counters, sport scoreboards, weather alert highlights etc., plus gives journalists the ability to create interactive graphs and charts directly in the editor, intending to create richer content for increased reader engagement.

Blogs can easily be embedded in articles, news portals, in apps, or on front pages. By being easily integrated with existing CMS, media libraries, or other 3rd party systems, Live Center allows users to reuse content elsewhere on their platforms, to increase the overall ROI of their live blogs.

With Live center we have got a more up to date live reporting tool for our news sites. We have been able to update our presentation and live reporting.

Pros
The admin interface is intuitive and ready to use with just a little introduction. The user interface is clear and there are options for different presentations.

Cons
There have been some unnecessary clicks instead of the possibility to tab to the next command. But in our dialoge with Live center their response have been understanding and emmediate.

Pros
I liked that at the beginning, the team were very keen to help us put together a product that worked well for our specific business, adapting their current tools to suit us, and in some circumstances, designing new elements. This close relationship with them differed a lot to the larger live blogging companies we worked with previously.

Cons
No negatives, i think it's a good product and I'm sure they'll continue to build more and more upon this tool.
