JP Rolls Out Online Notices

Publishing group Johnston Press (JP) is expanding an internet-based family notices service to incorporate all its news titles.

JP’s Announcement web pages feature notices of births, deaths and marriages and enable users to search for the profile of people they know or to browse by date or location.

The online notice is offered as an optional extra to readers when they place an announcement in about 220 of the group’s print media titles and is automatically uploaded by the newspaper.

Digital users can then visit the online profile to leave a message, upload photos and email the page to friends.

The company’s head of publishing John Bradshaw told holdthefrontpage.co.uk: “We are delighted to team up with iAnnounce to provide this interactive and innovative service for all our customers placing birth, marriage and death notices online.”

He added: “The service adds a whole new dimension to traditional notices placed within our publications and allows people to share memories, pictures and messages relating to their loved ones with a growing generation of new consumers using our websites.”

JP plans to complete the rollout of the service to all its newspaper websites by the end of the year.
