Groupe Moniteur Creates Powerful Platform to Manage All Digital Assets



    The French publisher deploys Nstein's full suite to power its 16 online
    properties

    MONTREAL, Aug. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Nstein Technologies Inc. www.nstein.com
(TSX-V: EIN), a leader in digital publishing solutions for newspapers,
magazines and online content providers, announced earlier today that Groupe
Moniteur, a leading French service and information provider for the
construction and local authorities sectors, has licensed Nstein's full digital
publishing suite including Digital Asset Management (DAM), Web Content
Management (WCM) and Text Mining Engine (TME) to enhance its digital platform
for managing and assembling its vast collection of assets.
    Established in 1903, Groupe Moniteur, a $200 million company with more
than 1100 employees, owns more than 30 publications including Le Moniteur and
La Gazette des communes, 700 books, 5 specialized databases and offers
tradeshow and conference management. Groupe Moniteur began the process of
streamlining its content management with the installation of an early version
of Nstein's DAM in 2005. Pleased with those results, the company committed to
creating a powerful media hub from which all assets will be catalogued,
associated, published or syndicated. The addition of WCM completes the digital
content supply chain, allowing the firm to create new sites quickly. A
critical component of the digital hub is TME, which allows content to be
tagged and indexed automatically. This rich metadata provides the added
benefit of proposing associated content to readers to enhance their
experience.
    "Groupe Moniteur initially deployed Nstein on a small scale to rapidly
deploy a new site, www.operationsimmobilieres.com and to relaunch
www.courriersdesmaires.com. We had each site up in only 8 weeks," said
Pierrick Guinguené, Chief Technology Officer of Groupe Moniteur. "For
Courrierdesmairs.com we saw strong increase in monthly visitors, with page
views increasing from 8,000 to 50,000. The monetization strategy centers on
offering a one-to-one relationship between readers and content. TME embedded
with DAM and WCM allows us to create this relationship."
    Groupe Moniteur plans to have its two flagship sites www.moniteur.fr and
www.gazettedescommunes.fr ported over to Nstein's suite in Fall of 2008. Much
of the content (text, images and video) already resides in Nstein's DAM and
will then be distributed by Nstein's web 2.0-enabled WCM. This will allow
readers to generate content helping Groupe Moniteur create dynamic communities
wthin each site.
    "Nstein is very proud to continue its longstanding relationship with
Group Moniteur," said Luc Filiatreault, President and CEO of Nstein
Technologies. "Group Moniteur has developed a series of publications that are
critical to the construction and authority sectors. We are happy to be able to
help Group Moniteur build out a powerful hub and infrastructure to support
their business endeavors."
