A look at how Brightspot's products work and solve the content challenges for its customers.

What’s the business pain point we address?
Editors and journalists waste time creating complicated workarounds for outdated platforms, which ultimately delays publishing timelines.

How does Brightspot approach this problem?
Brightspot’s mission is to transform the way content is created and presented. Our Digital Newsroom feature provides systematic order and flexibility to address the complex nature of how work is accomplished. Since offerings like Brightspot Assignment Desk are built directly into the same Content Business Platform you use to create content, all collaborators—internal, external, or ad hoc—are already where they need to be in order to move content from pitch to publish, saving time and increasing efficiency as you do.
