Roularta Media Group's French subsidiary to rely on Nstein's Text
Mining Engine to improve content search and SEO
MONTREAL and PARIS, Jan. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Nstein Technologies Inc.
www.nstein.com (TSX-V: EIN), a leader in online publishing solutions for
newspapers, magazines and online content providers, announced today the
signing of a contract with Groupe Express-Roularta (GER), the French
subsidiary of Roularta Media Group, Belgium's largest media group. Nstein's
Text Mining Engine (TME) will be used to automatically index and tag all
content from GER websites.
GER publishes a news magazine, L'Express, monthly business magazines,
such as L'Expansion and L'Entreprise, and consumer magazines such as Maison
Française and Côté Sud within the home design niche and publishes numerous
websites as well. GER chose Nstein to automate the process of enriching its
websites content with metadata. By doing so, GER's will reinforce its SEO
efforts but as well facilitate its users' navigation experience-suggesting
relevant links, related or even paid content.
"Nstein's Text Mining Engine has proven it can meet the increasingly
complex needs of the press and media industry regarding content indexing. The
reputation of Nstein's e-publishing experts enticed us to do business with
them," said Corinne Denis, Director of Web Publications for GER. "It is
important that our multi-brand Group optimizes the management of its digital
assets, and helps our Web teams improve search functionalities within each
website as well as within the complete network," concluded Corinne Denis.
It is also notable that GER has used Nstein's Digital Asset Management
solution since 2006.
"We are glad to have this second vote of confidence from GER-as evidenced
with this new project," said Luc Filiatreault, President and CEO of Nstein
Technologies. "Day after day, companies face the challenge of having to manage
growing amounts of content-with limited resources. Nstein's Text Mining Engine
was developed to automatically and intelligently link content-therefore
allowing it to be even more available, visible and read."
GER is the 16th major media company to have chosen in 2007 Nstein's
content management solutions for the media and electronic publishing industry.
