Rich Fairbairn: “Once you snag readers at the start of an event, they can be with you for hours.”

The addition of Live Reporting as a standard feature into Glide Publishing Platform’s wider publisher-focused service lets editors quickly add live event reportage and rolling news-style coverage to their offerings, content types which have some of the highest levels of user engagement on sites and apps today, says the company.

GPP Live Reporting allows collaborative reporting of events, with a dynamic single interface for both editors and writers to keep track of posts across a busy team as events begin to unfold and report posts start being filed at pace.

According to Glide, it lets you easily mix rolling event coverage with other content in Glide and helps promote effortless mixing of audiences, and within minutes have full live Breaking News reports up and running with multiple contributors including wire content and social media.

Glide's Rich Fairbairn said: “As readers we all know the power of breaking news and how live coverage grabs your attention. From a publisher perspective, it's some of the most habit-forming content there is and can really amp up your authority. Once you snag readers at the start of an event they can be with you for hours.

“A technical challenge we wanted to remove for customers is that dedicated Live Reporting CMS typically sit outside the main content systems used within an organisation and have few of the strengths of a headless CMS.

“This often leads to significant added development expense in rolling out Live Reporting as a site feature, or prevent it completely. We set out to remove those blockers, so you can retire secondary CMS completely and get live coverage up quickly. Even better, it’s no cost to GPP users.

“It is super easy to mix GPP's Live Reporting with other tools, so even organisations with existing systems can look to Glide to provide that crucial bit of engagement in the form of Live Reporting.”
