The Financial Times has announced the launch of a new online syndication platform for publishers with FT syndication agreements. The new service, offering up to 20% more FT content than before, provides FT syndication customers with advanced features to help them find and make best use of FT journalism that is most relevant to their requirements.
The updated site incorporates the latest FT news articles from all five editions of the FT newspaper, FT Weekend, FT.com and over 200 special reports and supplements each year. New content is added daily and the articles available for syndication are clearly flagged for each customer, based on permitted rights agreed with the FT.
“We are delighted to deliver an improved service to our syndication clients,” said Sophie de Brito, head of media syndication for the Financial Times. “The new website offers a convenient and practical content delivery system, and it will play a key part in making the FT’s journalism more readily accessible in local markets around the world.”
Providing more than 300 articles daily, the FT’s syndication service allows users to easily search, select and download articles in xml, text or html format. A summary view is provided for every article, including the source, author and word count, so users can quickly review articles and use this information to plan their editorial schedules.
Amparo Polo, UK Correspondent for Spanish newspaper Expansión, said: ”To work in partnership with the FT is easier than ever. The Financial Times has really improved its syndication platform. The new service allows Expansión to get more information, better organized and in a more friendly display. We appreciate the change.”
The Financial Times has syndication agreements with more than 50 publishers in 41 countries worldwide. For more information, visit www.ft.com/syndication
