The Official Launch of the Magazine Suite

Michelle Kalman - November 06-2012

After ten years of creating digital content management solutions for top brands like Subaru, Doritos, Uncle Ben's, Campbell's, Oprah Network, W Network, Cineplex, Shoppers Drug Mart, and CTV, Agility is moving further into the media and publishing industry.

Their new Magazine Suite is targeted at companies and brands that publish rich content – be it magazine, blog or custom publication. With existing clients such as Glow Magazine, ParentsCanada, Canadian Bride, Clean Eating, and Oxygen, their CMS is tried and tested.

“The Agility Magazine Suite follows the success we’ve had with our CMS platform in the media and publishing space,” says Michael Assad, CEO of Agility, “our new product saves months of setup time and tens of thousands of dollars over traditional web publishing systems. We know publishers are struggling to find their footing online and our goal with the Magazine Suite is to ease this transition."

The Digital Solution

The Agility Magazine Suite was developed over 5 years of working with the world’s largest media companies and has been battle tested with millions of page views.

Featuring an ability to integrate with leading magazine subscription systems and a built in module for showcasing magazine issues – Agility promotes that a new site can be ready for customers in as little as 5 weeks.

The CMS tools are tailored for continuous content updates and are based on the 9 fundamentals of website performance which include:

  1. LAYOUT AND NAVIGATION
  2. ADVERTISING AND AD PLACEMENT
  3. SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION
  4. CONTENT MERCHANDISING
  5. SOCIAL MEDIA INTEGRATION
  6. CONTENT SYDICATION
  7. MOBILE
  8. COMMUNITY
  9. PERFORMANCE

Best of all – the Agility Magazine Suite is in the cloud so there is no hardware, software, website hosting or maintenance required.

To celebrate the official launch of the Magazine Suite, Agility is hosting GET DIGITAL, an event that focuses on Niche Publications in the digital space.
