March 2014, Milan, Italy – Miles 33 and GMDE are proud to announce that Pagina99, a newly launched newspaper in Italy, has successfully published their first issue to web, print and mobile.
Pagina99 is a brand new newspaper, conceived in 2013 and now publishes two editions, a 16 page daily and a 56 page weekly.
Strategically, the new newspaper started out as a digital edition on mobile devices. The print channel has been included to add visibility, prestige and authority to the new publication and the web channel is focused on reaching out and for readership consolidation. Central to all channels lies the GN4, VirtualNewspaper and VirtualCMS system from Miles 33.
Pagina99 publishes economic topics, politics and national news, and is targeted for a dynamic, demanding and involved audience.
