AP ENPS wins major European contract

Swedish Radio today announced that it is committing its long-term future to AP’s ENPS newsroom computer system. As well as for news, Swedish Radio, the Swedish national broadcaster, will use ENPS for the majority of its output across the 25 production centers in the widely distributed Swedish Radio network.

This announcement follows a rigorous and demanding procurement. Swedish Radio’s head of production, David Gustafsson, said: "Sveriges Radio has used ENPS for many years and it has not let us down.  We are happy to renew our deal with ENPS and AP."

Swedish Radio will now be able to upgrade to ENPS version 8 and begin using the ENPS application programming interface and the new ENPS apps. This upgrade will bring a range of new benefits including:

  • Harvesting rich ENPS metadata with the inbuilt statistical reporting tool.
  • Production of multimedia stories in the field using the new ENPS mobile client.
  • Easily accessible related content by linking objects and story tagging.
  • Social media management including news publication and monitoring.
  • Extended integration options via the ENPS Open API.
  • Advanced digital publishing workflow.

Paddy Payne, director of international business development at AP ENPS, said: "It is a ringing endorsement from Swedish Radio journalists that the performance of ENPS in the past and the development we are delivering year-on-year is a compelling combination. By migrating to our latest version, we will be significantly enhancing SR’s news production processes, allowing us to future-proof their newsroom."
