Desk-Net is a new platform for cross-media newsroom management targeted at medium-size and large publishing houses. It helps to plan appointments, manage stories, co-ordinate staff, control beats, and streamline cross-media workflows. It makes the whole range of publishing processes less time-consuming and more productive. In the custom system developed by Intetics, stories and appointments can be easily assigned to employees. Every user has his/her own personal site where assignments can be tracked. A simple and easy-to-use “Notes” function enables managers to inform their staff of upcoming projects or meetings. Specific days and sections can be selected for targeted communication. Personnel – internal or external – can get access to certain sections only, thus being restricted in viewing information that is not directly related to their work. Automated email notifications are sent out to inform users about new entries or changes in existing ones. Today the service is used by 12,000 users from over 200 organizations, with the user base expanding quickly.
