What do you like best?

Hundreds of journalists throughout our organisation have been able to start using Live Center with little training, which attests to its intuitiveness and user friendliness. These journalists use Live Center to cover everything from local sports to court proceedings, festivals and political meetings, which attests to the flexibility of the tool.

Excellent value for money. A flexible and mature set of tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We now have an accessible tool which journalists can use to cover all kinds of local news that take place over a period of time - and which therefore is suited to minute-by-minute reporting. During the height of the Corona crisis, we had an average of 1,5 million user sessions per day in Live Center without any sign of the system slowing down or struggling.

What do you like best?

We shifted to Live Center as we were looking for a more affordable option without sacrificing the quality of our live blogs. I love how its interface looks and appreciate how its design has quick posting in mind, especially in the field of news where you have to beat the competition and break updates fast. Instead of doing multiple clicks to get to the embed code, we save a few precious seconds by just pasting the URL directly for Facebook, Twitter and YouTube content.

Totally user-friendly with multiple formating options including an HTML override at the bottom and allows us to post raw videos and photos from reporters on the ground with ease. It's actually so user-friendly that at times we prefer it over our CMS and use it even outside live blogging purposes, in particular for "In Photos" types of content like in our compilation of pictures in the aftermath of a typhoon, before and after photos of Super Typhoon Yolanda years apart, and the recovery of towns hit by the recent Taal eruption.

I'm particularly fond of the highlight option as it breaks the monotony in a series of posts and directs readers' eyes to notice more pressing updates. Amazing customer support, too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing we dislike about it. It addresses all our live blogging needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Live Center addresses our need to provide news updates on pressing stories as it happens using different multimedia content formats. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I loved that they work with you at the beginning to fully customise and adapt the product to suit your aims. They even built one or two elements for us specifically following feedback from our team. So they are every approachable and also worth noting they didn't push us to sign up constantly during the trial, they were happy for us to test everything we needed, by which time we were confident we wanted to go ahead anyway. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything we dislike, so no cons. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As good as the other products on the market yet more cost effective and better customer service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This allows us to get large amounts of information out in realtime, where articles would be too slow and would result in losing users. With liveblog software we can engage our audience fully, while keeping them on our site unlike with social media. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
