Russmedia stands for innovation and is dedicated to providing the most actual news to its readers. With Tickaroo as a reliable partner, the journalists at the Austrian media company are able to present live-blogged soccer games to their users in the most comprehensive way possible – in the form of a livecenter!
Together with the professional knowledge from editors, including those from Russmedia, the team at Tickaroo used their technical expertise to create an app template dedicated solely to the writing and distribution of live news. Tickaroo also offers templates especially tailored to over thirty different sports which makes it possible to quickly upload texts, images, videos and links and share them with users in real time.
Vorarlberg Online (VOL.AT) is Russmedia's online portal with a regional focus on the Austrian province of Vorarlberg. The football live blog “Ländleticker” uses Tickaroo's live-blogging technology and provides football fans in the region and beyond with all of the scores as well as up-to-the-minute summaries of the top four leagues in Austria. Readers can easily and effectively follow several matches at the same time thanks to the user-friendly sports livecentre. Via the Tickaroo soccer template, fans are brought into the excitement of the game regardless of where they are reading their favourite live blogs.
The editors and journalists at Vol.at also benefit from the easy usability of the live-blogging tool. From being able to quickly create new matches to adding additional information such as the team line-up, the editorial staff can be certain that what they enter is presented to their readers when they need it – live. Should something be entered in error, entries in the live blog tool can be revised and re-published at any time. Where users find the live blogs is also of importance, and thanks to the customizable JS Embed widget, editors can keep the readers where they want them, which is on Vol.at.
