More about Forward Publishing

Digitizing the publishing industry

Our offering includes a set of software components for handling the entire publication process – as a complete cloud service or on premise. From content creation to regionalized or individualized delivery to digital devices and print, we support all the requirements of a modern publishing house or communications agency.

Modern platforms for all end devices

As one of the largest and most important software providers, we have developed various apps and the corresponding delivery platform for leading publishing houses. For example, we developed the successful NZZ News App for iOS and Android for the NZZ Media Group. This app is implemented with React Native, a cross-platform, mobile development technology. All functions are available across devices and channels. In addition, the NZZ regional media "Luzerner Zeitung" and "St. Galler Tagblatt" are served cost-efficiently via the same platform with their own Apps – so-called "tenants" – in the App Store. Further customers are Ringier with the Blick Sport App and the Blick VR App.

Comprehensive range from a single source

In addition to software development, we support media houses with innovations and develop promising business models. Our expertise enables our customers to set themselves apart from their competitors in the long term. We cover the entire IT life cycle, from strategy and planning to implementation and operation. The balanced combination of the latest technologies and proven standards that we maintain in our technology portfolio ensures your investment security.
