Here’s what some of our users had to say about Shorthand:
Using Shorthand has brought development time down from several weeks to a day or less. This means we can do many more projects than before. And time on page is always better than normal CMS stories. We’re getting some great results.
Shorthand has saved us time and money compared to traditional alternatives. We can produce special featured stories without having to engage designers and developers.
We loved that Shorthand made creating a visually engaging and beautiful page possible within our time and resource constraints.
Shorthand has made a considerable difference to how we are able to present our features and the levels of engagement show that.
We don’t have engagement levels like that on any other areas of our website… It’s amazing they we’ve got that kind of engagement.
We wanted to experiment and test new ways of storytelling. We can rely on the platform to do that in a cost effective manner and not pull on too many resources internally.
Shorthand has allowed Telegraph journalists to turn around multimedia stories & projects without any reliance on developers, & has been integrated across the newsroom for coverage ranging from interactive graphics, photo stories & long-reads.
Collaborative, friendly & helpful - the team at Shorthand are as versatile as their platform, which is a great tool for telling stories in a rich & engaging form.
We've been able to build quality immersive content, with a quick turnaround, without relying heavily on developer support. Audiences respond well to it, & it's great to have a tool that allows great journalism to look as good as it reads.
It’s completely opened up a whole new area of putting content online for us. We hadn't done anything like this previously so it really has changed the breadth and width of everything we have available now.
Shorthand removes all the technical complexities involved and allows non-coders to build a creative that has such that deep immersive feel, and in a fraction of the time.
We’ve already noticed time on page to be significantly higher on our Shorthand stories, up to nearly 7 minutes per session. In terms of actual engagement, it’s given us a big boost.
