Lineup Systems today announced that The McClatchy Company (McClatchy) has selected Lineup’s multichannel advertising sales solution, Adpoint, to replace multiple existing solutions. This change will enable McClatchy to increase business agility by using one platform to manage every aspect of multichannel advertising sales and finance processes for all their publications.
McClatchy owns and operates 30 local news outlets around the United States and publishes content across several channels, including traditional print, digital and mobile apps.
