Stampen Media Group taps Aria’s billing platform to grow revenue

By Mohamed Dabo

Aria Systems, provider of a cloud-based billing platform has announced that Swedish publisher Stampen Media Group has leveraged the Aria Media and Publishing Suite to centrally manage all digital and print subscribers and grow recurring revenue.

Stampen, one of Sweden’s largest owners of newspapers, has selected Aria’s billing and monetization platform and will deploy the Aria Media and Publishing Suite (AMPS) to manage 23 print and digital titles within a single environment.

The Swedish publisher will utilise Aria’s core platform for subscription management, payments and dunning services and AMPS for title and distribution management support.

Supporting the digital transformation of media and publishers

Launched in 2018, AMPS is an extension of Aria’s core billing and monetisation platform designed specifically to support the digital transformation efforts of media and publishing companies and address their unique subscription and customer management requirements.

Stampen is the latest Nordic publisher to select AMPS joining Berlingske Media in Denmark and Polaris Media in Norway. The company expects to complete a successful on-time implementation in January.

Tom Dibble, President and CEO, Aria Systems, said:

“As publishers continue to digitize, they require a modern and agile billing platform that can accelerate revenue from newer digital products, spanning all types of devices, while continuing to serve traditional print customers.

“Stampen will have the ability to manage digital and print subscriber accounts seamlessly in a single environment while at the same time driving incremental revenue from the introduction of new digital offerings. We are proud to add another media company to our growing portfolio and welcome Stampen to the Aria family.”

“The implementation of Aria is underway and moving forward”

Stampen is one of the leading publishing companies in Sweden, reaching more than one million subscribers daily through 23 newspaper titles and 35 free local weeklies featuring coverage of local news and events.

The largest of its newspapers is Goteborgs-Posten in Gothenburg.

Henrik Elm, Chief Technology Officer, Stampen Media Group, said:

“The ability to effectively manage both print and digital media subscribers for pricing and bundles in a unified system was a key driver behind our selection of Aria.

“The implementation of Aria is underway and moving forward. We are looking forward to taking full advantage of AMPS to expand both our digital services offerings and local subscriber base.”
