Cloud-Hosted Content Management Solutions for Publishers

How IDS Solutions Are Helping Publishers Stay Ahead

Streamlined Workflows

With all owned and third party content in one place, IDS solutions are built to save time. IDS has created a range of tools and features developed with publishing workflows in mind.

Increased Revenues

Publishers syndicating their content through IDS PictureDesk see increased revenues from additional licensing sales via our platform.

Reduced Spending

As well as immediate IT cost savings, with the ability to easily find in-license images and owned articles, significant savings are being made by repurposing content across brands.

AI Technology

IDS offers automated solutions to many manual processes still in use today. Eliminating repetitive tasks such as billing mark-ups and keywording, frees up staff for more skilled work and can reduce head count.

Cloud-Hosted Content

IDS software is 100% cloud-based, 100% scalable and 100% secure; access to content is provided safely and reliably via web browser and our app.

Easy Integration

IDS solutions easily integrate with in-house CMS, workflow systems and publishing applications including Adobe CC Apps and WordPress. IDS supports third-party feed integration via API or ftp.
