ANNOVA Systems GmbH wins strategic contract

with German prime news channel

SCISYS PLC ("SCISYS"), the supplier of bespoke software systems, IT-based solutions and support services to the media & broadcast, space, government, defence and commercial sectors, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, ANNOVA Systems GmbH ("ANNOVA"), has signed a strategic EUR0.8m contract with the German public broadcaster ARD-aktuell for a cross-media planning portal for its national prime news programmes, including 'Tagesschau'.

This is a strategic win for ANNOVA, who will develop a portal for ARD-aktuell based on the ground-breaking, proprietary product OpenMedia Newsboard. This solution will give its journalists a powerful web-based tool that bolsters their existing OpenMedia installation by providing an extended research capability that in addition covers the entire world wide web and social media networks.

This project is the second major win by ANNOVA this month and it further underscores SCISYS' confidence in the current market guidance. Work will commence in September 2017 and continue for approximately 18 months.

Klaus Heidrich, Chief Executive Officer of SCISYS, commented:

"Congratulations to ANNOVA for this second excellent contract win this month. It is testament to ANNOVA's ability to set trends with its innovative OpenMedia product, as well as the team's ability to win new business from new and established customers alike.

"The innovative OpenMedia Newsboard module opens up a raft of new opportunities, including joint solutions which further integrate OpenMedia and SCISYS Media & Broadcast's own dira! product.

"I am delighted to announce this strategic win as evidence of the additional momentum that SCISYS is gaining with its activities in the Media & Broadcast sector."

Michael Schueller, Chief Executive Officer of ANNOVA Systems, added:

"This is a great success for ANNOVA. It demonstrates our position as thought leaders and our consistent ability to succeed in a highly competitive market.

"Talking to the customer, we believe that its decision was driven by a combination of our innovative technical solution, competitive price and, importantly, by the sustainable strategic approach we are taking.

"It will be a great pleasure to further extend our long-term cooperation with this important customer. Our solution is expected to deliver a significant increase in efficiency when it comes to editorial news planning and creation across different media platforms. We are looking for this to become an exemplar project for other broadcasters."
