Enterprise NewsMedia Signs With Thomson Interactive

Thomson Interactive Media (TIM) said it was selected by Enterprise NewsMedia Inc. to publish the Internet classified and display ads for the company's 11 newspapers.

Starting with TIM's Classified IQ, the flagship product in its suite of online solutions, Enterprise, which serves communities in coastal Massachusetts, will later use TIM's Directory Express (guides and yellow pages) and SiteCrafter Web development products.

"We were most impressed by TIM's superior products and services," said Jim Plugh, president and CEO of Enterprise NewsMedia. "Other vendors have tried to sell us products that don't quite exist or are still vaporware. So we went with TIM because it offers a suite of existing products that have a proven and profitable track record within the media industry."

TIM said its clients are able to build their online business transparently by empowering their communities as local portals to the Internet. TIM clients include The Tampa Tribune, Editor & Publisher, Newsday, Houston Chronicle, Guy Gannett Communications, Media General, the Ontario Community Newspaper Association and Thomson Newspapers.
