Recently recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for
Content Marketing Platforms, NewsCred’s software enables entire
marketing organizations to come together in a single solution, fostering
a collaborative culture of cross-functional planning and end-to-end
content execution. Specifically, the NewsCred team of experts will be
on-site at Gartner demonstrating the latest CMP innovations, including:

  • Integrated Campaign Planning: Dedicated campaign workspaces for
    marketers to collaboratively develop the strategic plan (including
    overall objectives, deliverables, target audience, and more) and
    consolidate all campaign activity. Additionally, shared, global
    timeline and editorial calendars give teams the ability to visualize
    the holistic strategy for all primary and sub-campaigns — across
    different teams, markets, and lines of business — using annual,
    quarterly, or monthly planning views.
  • Intelligent Work Management: Designed to streamline the
    management of ad hoc requests received from other functions of the
    organization, Work Requests allow marketing and creative services
    teams to publish intake forms for external requesters and
    automatically route each project to the appropriate resource using an
    intelligent, pre-configured rules engine. By centralizing every
    request within a dedicated module, marketing teams are able to
    monitor, prioritize, and initiate work directly from the CMP, ensuring
    cross-functional collaboration and transparency.
  • Holistic Performance Measurement: Robust operational
    efficiency, content production, and campaign performance metrics
    surface data-driven insights at the campaign level, enabling teams to
    identify opportunities to improve the efficiency of the marketing
    organization, track what is being planned vs. produced, and measure
    the end-to-end impact of campaigns and content — from first-touch
    engagement to closed-won attribution.

“NewsCred’s CMP has been a game-changer for the five-agency roster and
internal team that designs and executes integrated marketing campaigns
for Hershey’s U.S. Commercial business unit,” said Laura Renaud,
Corporate Communications Manager, The Hershey Company. “Having a
cloud-based, centralized workspace has made collaboration seamless, and
we’ve seen marked improvements to our content quality thanks to the
strategic alignment and holistic visibility that’s central to the
NewsCred solution.”

“By making it easier for our customers to plan and collaborate — at
scale — NewsCred is transforming how marketing works,” said Shafqat.
“We’re unifying global organizations, and empowering teams to deliver
meaningful marketing.”
