We are pleased to announce we have now completed a successful migration of subscriptions for The Art Newspaper from their previous bureau, and have launched a new eCommerce platform.
The Art Newspaper are using ESco's full subscriptions bureau service and benefiting from our first class customer service team, pro-active account management team, cutting-edge analytical reporting, revenue generating eCommerce system, and award-winning renewals service. We are also integrating with their website and app to facilitate access and entitlement to content behind their digital paywall.
Founded in 1990 by Anna Somers Cocks to a concept by the Italian publisher Umberto Allemandi, The Art Newspaper is an online and print publication with offices in London and New York. It provides an unrivalled news service about the art world, fed by its network of sister editions, which together have more than 50 correspondents working in more than 30 countries, with editorial offices in London, Turin, New York, Paris, Moscow, Beijing and Athens. In 2014, Inna Bazhenova became the owner of The Art Newspaper International Edition and the licensed network in Italy, Greece, France and Russia. Since June 2015, The Art Newspaper has been digital-first and daily while continuing to publish a 100-plus page monthly edition in print.
Commenting on the move to ESco, James Greenwood, the Head of Subscriptions and Membership at The Art Newspaper said:
In order to move ahead with our plans to become a digital-first publisher we needed to find a subscriptions bureau that could deliver our comprehensive list of requirements. We chose ESco based on recommendations and due diligence. We have been thoroughly impressed with their professionalism, and their attention to detail in the preparation and execution of the migration. We look forward to working with them to achieve our ambitious goals.
