Chicago Sun-Times launches integrated web-print subscription platform

  The Chicago Sun-Times, one of the largest U.S. dailies, launched a paid electronic edition that allows print customers unrestricted access using the subscription-management platform of Clickshare Service Corp. Clickshare also handles the web capture and processing of print subscriptions.

Clickshare is a leading provider of online subscription-management, card-processing and web access-control, serving the newspaper industry and B2B publications for over 10 years.

“We chose Clickshare for our electronic edition because we wanted to give our print customers the added benefit of our E-edition while increasing our paid circulation,” said John Cary, senior director of online operations for the Sun-Times. “Clickshare provides the best content-control solution in terms of simplicity and stability as well as flexibility for the long term.”

“The Sun-Times Newspaper Group is pursuing a series of innovations in serving multi-platform users which will set an example for the newspaper industry,” said Richard Lerner, Clickshare’s president. “We’re committed to enabling that innovation at the Sun-Times and its sister newspapers.”  (July 31, 2007) # # # #
