Our dedication to improve the state-of-the-art has resulted in Inception – the first product that connects your newsroom directly to the web, allowing you to use a professional production process for all content being published as social media. The system follows a simple Create -> Edit -> Submit -> Approve -> Publish process to guide you from story concept to complete.

Inception features an innovative plug-in architecture that allows you to choose when and where stories come from, how material is published, and ways to customize the system to work for you. It has plug-ins to create live running orders or use MOS to load them from your newsroom, it has plug-ins for many popular social networks like Twitter and Facebook, video hosting sites like YouTube and Brightcove and it has plug-ins for workflow solutions like scheduling and email approval. Whether you are managing 1 feed or 100, and however large or small your organization Inception can handle it.

Applications exist wherever you want to get the message out to the widest possible audience such as news, live events, breaking news, promotions, sports, weather, alerts and updates. The power and simplicity of the system allows you to control the message without adding to anyone’s work load.
