In April 2019, Stibo DX strengthened its successful CUE publishing platform by adding Digital Collections’ (DC) best-in-class digital asset management (DAM) capabilities.

On 11 April 2019, Stibo DX welcomed Hamburg-based DC into the family of companies, which have developed the CUE publishing platform. Stibo DX acquired full ownership of DC, which joins us in the further development of CUE.

Growth journey

The acquisition of DC was an important step in Stibo DX’s growth journey that is driven by the CUE publishing platform.

In the past two years, Stibo DX has received orders for CUE installations from several large media companies, such as The Economist, Polish broadcaster TVN, and German news publishers Der Tagesspiegel, Handelsblatt, Badische Neueste Nachrichten, Ippen Verlagsgruppe, and VRM, with more orders in the pipeline. Stibo DX is experiencing strong interest from organizations who are looking for a partner and a platform to drive their digital transformation.

Industry-leading DAM platform

DC is known worldwide for its industry-leading DC-X digital asset management platform. The DC-X DAM enables media companies to manage diverse content assets such as pictures, text, and videos in a central content repository, and to integrate external sources, such as RSS feeds and agency wires, into their content creation workflow.

DC-X continues as a stand-alone digital asset management solution but DAM capabilities have also been added as a native component of CUE. This provides a robust and coherent publishing platform and an even better user experience across both solutions. DC’s entry into the CUE family also strengthens the team behind the development of CUE.

“Joining the CUE family is a natural next step in DC’s future development. Our customers are increasingly focused on tools and systems that can help them drive their digital business forward. Stibo DX has a best-in-class publishing platform in CUE, which offers a strong solution to the digital transformation challenge,” said Ole Olsen, CEO of DC at the time of the acquiry.

Boosting innovation

DC continues to operate as a separate company with its own products and customer base, collaborating closely with Stibo DX for future developments.
