Independent Ireland Chooses Blue Billywig Online Video Publication

There is a new partnership between The Netherlands and Ireland: Independent Ireland has chosen the Dutch Blue Billywig as the partner for the publication and management of all online video.
Hilversum, the Netherlands(5/24/2011) -

Independent.ie has of course been publishing  online video in the past, but chose to move from Brightcove to Blue Billywig for a multitude of reasons. Patrick Lenehan, Chief Technology Officer at INM Ireland Digital: "We prefer the Blue Billywig solution to our former supplier, because of the full integration into our CMS, enabling us to publish much more video without adding to our online staff, and of course, because they are nice guys offering a great product for a reasonable price. Having a good relationship with our support team close by,  also means a lot to us. We are sure we can realize our multi-media strategic goals for the website using the Blue Billywig solution."

With the innovative MultiStage Advertising System (MSAS) feature of the Blue Billywig Video Management System, their use of online video can even be  more profitable; the better advertising integration makes it possible to target on Escenic section as well.

Independent.ie is the flagship brand of Independent Digital (the digital consumer division of Independent News & Media Group). It provides up to the minute news content and services to a global audience. Independent.ie is Ireland's number one quality news and information portal. The publication of video has become an important part of Independent.ie and generates an enormous amount of traffic.

Obviously, Blue Billywig is very happy with this new customer. Jeroen Meeter, CEO of the supplier of strategic video solutions: "It's the confirmation that we're ahead of the competition and that our choice to keep our high personal service level always on top of mind, was the right one. We developed a great video management system that is complete, flexible and user friendly. Not everyone is aware of that yet. With Independent.ie we now can travel, and conquer, the rest of the world. Blue Billywig is ready to expand."
