Flagship Las Vegas Review-Journal live in June

ANN ARBOR, MI (July 25, 2012) — MediaSpan announced today that the Las Vegas Review-Journal is live with CirculationPro®.   

Stephens is now managing over 90 products in CirculationPro including dailies, weeklies, niche publications, e-editions and iPad editions. The single MediaSpan hosted database encompasses 1.6 million addresses and 1.3 million subscribers.

Before the conversion, Stephens was using 11 different PBS/DTI databases to manage their publications. They consolidated into a single CirculationPro SaaS server with 140 concurrent seats. Stephen’s properties include their flagship, the Las Vegas Review-Journal (200k Sun circulation) as well as dailies and weeklies in Hawaii, Washington, North Carolina, Iowa, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and Texas.

In Las Vegas alone, Stephen’s manages 28 products, including 11 outside delivery publications (USA Today, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, New York Post...), several weeklies and monthlies, as well as numerous niche publications and the Las Vegas Review-Journal. In addition, they are using a MediaSpan developed Drupal plugin in conjunction with CirculationPro’s web services, to manage website access control for their print subscribers.

Starting the project in late November MediaSpan was able to bring all of the Stephen’s publications live in less than 8 months.

“We were faced with a tremendous challenge in bringing all of these publications live in in such a short time frame.  Our professional services team and Stephens’s internal team worked tremendously hard and cohesively to meet Stephens Media’s schedule. We look forward to continuing to work together to grow the product and streamline and enhance Stephens circulation workflow.”  Scott Bray, MediaSpan's Circulation Product Manager.
