December 10, 2018 -- The Washington Post’s Arc Publishing today announced it will power digital publishing for ABC Color, Paraguay’s most-read newspaper. ABC Color will license Arc’s cutting-edge technology to accelerate the news organization’s digital growth across video, mobile and distributed platforms. ABC Color is Arc’s latest addition in the South American market.
“With the platform’s built-in ability to support many languages, Arc seamlessly and quickly gives publishers the ability to focus on high-quality journalism while creating the best digital experience for readers,” said Scot Gillespie, Chief Technology Officer at The Washington Post. “We look forward to helping ABC Color execute this digital transformation and position it as a digital news leader in the region.”
Leveraging Arc tools, ABC Color’s site, full publishing system and newsroom workflow will be migrated to the Arc platform.
