Strengthened Partnership between Retresco and Livingdocs


Optimisation of Content Workflows and Increased Visibility With News Publishers

Berlin/Zurich, 17 April 2024 – Top provider of custom AI solutions Retresco and leading digital content creation and publishing provider for publishers Livingdocs announce the expansion of their partnership. Newspaper publishers and media companies will benefit from flexible, semantic auto-tagging solutions of editorial information and categorisation of digital content in combination with intuitive content creation in Livingdocs. The intensified collaboration aims to provide news publishers with simple and effective solutions so that they can optimise and further develop their editorial processes and implement SEO measures in a scalable and cross-channel manner - all seamlessly from a single source.

Retresco is contributing its AI-supported solutions in the areas of topic management and search engine optimisation to the partnership. Livingdocs, for its part, offers its versatile modules in the area of editorial workflow support as part of the headless CMS, which is characterised by flexible data structures at the content level and can be easily integrated into editorial ecosystems. In the past, the collaboration between Retresco and Livingdocs has already resulted in major projects in the environment of numerous well-known newspaper publishers and media companies, including Süddeutsche Zeitung, t-online, Berliner Zeitung and Neue Pressegesellschaft.

Collaboration is now being taken to a new level, as the demand in the newsroom for effective, AI-supported workflows and reader-centred, cross-channel content continues to grow. There is a reliable interface (API) between the editorial solutions of Livingdocs and Retresco. From now on, news publishers will benefit from a new functionality that enables tagging in queues so that mass changes can be automatically triggered in existing entities at any time. This queue management acts as a buffer to ensure that all news and articles are easily updatable without necessarily requiring a real-time exchange between Livingdocs and Retresco.  

Gabriel Hase, CEO at Livingdocs comments on the new partnership: "Our headless CMS can be easily and effectively integrated into editorial ecosystems. In the context of newsroom projects, we regularly work with Retresco as a top provider of editorial topic management and targeted SEO measures. The number of joint customers is impressive proof of this. We are all the more pleased that we are taking the next step together and developing our partnership in the interests of our customers."

Johannes Sommer, CEO of Retresco, adds: "We are delighted to be expanding our partnership with Livingdocs. We both stand for efficiency and quality combined with the latest technical possibilities without overturning established editorial processes. Joint customers benefit from customised AI solutions. At the same time, together we are helping to equip newsrooms with productive solutions that optimise and accelerate editorial workflows."

Successful news publishers rely on semantic enrichment and auto-tagging. News and articles are automatically analysed and tagged with keywords. Editorial content can thus be clustered thematically in order to organise it for bundled publication of concentrated topic collections. Metadata, headlines, topic teasers, texts as well as audio and video content can be semantically enriched and aligned. Enrichment is based on entities (proper names), i.e. relevant people, places, organisations, products and events are automatically identified and indexed. Content enrichment is carried out by Retresco AI, whereby keywords can be assigned fully automatically according to their content relevance. Thanks to search engine-optimised, easily scalable content production, newspaper publishers and media companies can secure significantly greater visibility and reach on Google and other search engines.
