Increase Workflow Efficiencies, Viewer Engagement, and Ad Monetization

Use Case

The Challenge

With a vision to deliver a diversity of content in varied formats to Thai audiences, Thairath Online’s content enriches the audience’s experience through innovative storytelling.

The wide range of content pillars that Thairath Online manages requires a robust staff and operational system to publish thousands of pieces of content monthly. Since Thairath Online originated as a television company, they understand the power of video. But, with lofty content goals and a growing staff, it became a challenge to keep up with the pace of content their journalists were producing and Thairath Online had evidence that the bottleneck their in house video tool was creating, was also leading to a loss in viewer engagement and monetization.

Why Thairath Online
Chose JWP

As Thairath Online scaled their video content, they needed a solution that would reduce their time to market and an implementation process that wouldn’t interrupt their fast pace of video content production.

JWP offered an easy and high quality video solution to streamline Thairath Online’s processes. Understanding that JWP also offered tools to accommodate lofty engagement and advertising goals, the switch was an easy choice, fulfilling a myriad of business needs for a company with diverse and prolific content delivery.

"There’s no learning curve for our staff because the panel is so easy to use. Our editorial staff said that JWP technology helped speed up their workflow and resolved the bottleneck from the large amount of video we process.”
