Products and services
Worldnow's main product is its enterprise content management system, which was optimized for use in television news workflows. Specifically, the system was built to allow producers to create content to be published through several platforms at once (including online, through social media, and mobile). It can also integrate with other software such as the Associated Press' ENPS through its "Active Intelligence Management" framework.
Worldnow's largest client is Raycom Media, who also owns a minority stake in the company. In 2012, Fox Television Stations migrated its websites to Worldnow's platform from one it had co-developed with LIN Media (who previously used Worldnow, and still owns a minority stake in the company), becoming Worldnow's second largest client. In 2011, Meredith Corporation (who had previously used Worldnow before dropping it for services from Internet Broadcasting) began a four year contract with Worldnow to operate its station websites. In January 2013, Media General reached a deal to move its eighteen stations to Worldnow, beginning with WFLA-TV. Media General planned to finish the migration within the first quarter of 2013.
