The Platform is an online new media organisation based in New Zealand. Led by Sean Plunket, an award-winning broadcast and talkback radio host, with a reputation for a commitment to free speech and critical thinking, The Platform has emerged as a formidable contender against established media outlets, advocating for free speech, pushing back against censorship, and promoting robust journalism.
Sean was looking for a comprehensive digital publishing system that could handle the complexity involved in integrating and managing a range of different types of content, in different formats. Stability, robustness, flexibility and ease-of-use was critical, as was live radio functionality and mobile accessibility on iPhone and Android. As a start-up business budget considerations were important as well as continuous performance measurement for improvement.
