KnowledgeView has upgraded the news agency acquisition and management system for Egypt’s Al-Ahram daily newspaper. The new system allows for acquisition and archiving of news and picture agency feeds on a central server, from where they can be accessed using KnowledgeView’s ‘NewsNet Editor’ client software tools.

“The Al-Ahram Newspaper organisation is dedicated to providing its editors with the best-of-breed electronic solutions for news agency acquisition and management,” said Eng. Taymour Haseeb, printing press manager. “We have worked with KnowledgeView for many years and are extremely happy with the latest successful upgrade of our newspaper’s news aggregation and management software.”

KnowledgeView Ltd develops content aggregation, management and delivery systems for print and online publishers. Its systems are used by Al-Riyadh and Al-Watan in KSA, Al-Rai in Jordan, and Assafir and Al-Mostakbal in Lebanon. KnowledgeView is currently helping CCN develop the content management system for the forthcoming CNNArabic.com Web site.

“Our core expertise in this domain has given our clients a great value proposition by taking advantage of our continued commitment to the development and upgrading of our solutions, in line with today’s progress in the IT sector,” Ammar Alassam, director, KnowledgeView Middle East.
