RTG's Archive2Go links into CloudChannel

RTG Ventures’ media business RTG Media launching a cloud-based content management service, ArchiveGo.com. 

BY PAUL QUIGLEY

ECM Plus – According to the RTG Ventures, the new Archive2Go service is aimed at corporations that own digital media content with a secure way of managing media with access from any internet enabled device.

RTG said that /ArchiveGo.com would offer a round-the-clock catalogueing and archiving service with automatic back-up.

ArchiveGo also boasts a single-click interconnect to CloudChannel, RTG Media’s auto-syndication and monetization application,

CloudChannel is a platform supporting media owners’ content to monetize it directly from their own archive.

Colin Burgess, RTG Media’s technology director, commented: “ArchiveGo.com was borne out of the needs we identified while working with record labels on the CloudChannel product and because of my specific expertise, we were able to create a solution very quickly.”

Added Burgess: “I don’t think we’ve come across a single company in our space that doesn’t like the idea of what CloudChannel can do for them, but many organizations don’t have their whole back catalogue in good enough shape to be able to take advantage of its unique monetization methods. It quickly became clear that there was a role for us in organizing the catalogues prior to monetizing them and to do that, we needed a tool. Meeting another unidentified business need will give RTG an additional source of revenue and illustrates one of our core values of being opportunity driven. This new technology will act as a stepping stone towards full integration with CloudChannel.”

Burgess also said that when they could not find a solution at the right price to buy, the company decided to build its own and that it had been so well received, that the company is now opening it up to the wider market by selling it online as a web application. “For our core markets, we’re wrapping a service layer around the product providing not just the technical infrastructure, but also the people they need to get their assets properly cataloged and archived” Burgess added.

Brands set To shift from community building to monetisation in social media in 2011

BY PAUL QUIGLEY

ECM Plus – It was only a matter of time. With many brands focused on building social communities in the past, their focus is shifting towards how they can make money out of these communities and social channels and social activities in 2011, says Punch Communications.

According to their research, launching a Facebook store will continue to enable brands to continue discussion with followers and fans, while also customers can buy and share products with friends and write reviews, Punch stated.

Holly Henstock at Punch added: ‘Brands have and are continuing to integrate social media channels within campaigns, alongside other channels. However with some brands now beginning to sell directly via Facebook apps such as the Facebook store, it looks likely that those brands who have invested so heavily in community building will begin to look at how they can make a return on investment. Clearly the main issue is how to do so without undermining the community itself – and it’s certain that some consumers will reject the concept of being sold to via brand pages. Nevertheless, the process is inevitable and looks set to create an interesting dynamic over the coming six to twelve months.”
