What our publisher partners say
For a small newsroom, automation is necessary.
"We’re forever prioritising and sometimes I feel all we ever do is choose not to cover things. We know where to deploy our resources in order to make our readers happy. And if we can use technology and automation to perform tasks as well as we reporters would, there’s no doubt that’s what we should do."
Helena Tell, Editor-in-Chief, Bärgslagsbladet
Driving reach through hyper local sports coverage
"We believe publishing thousands of articles with a dozen or so views each, generates value in a couple of ways. Firstly it’s about reach, which is the foundation of our current business model. Local sports articles often go viral in small clusters which means we reach big audiences on hyper local level. It’s also important for our brand to be seen to provide coverage of all leagues and divisions, including junior ones."
Hannes Andersson, CEO EverySport Media Group
High quality real estate texts drive subscription sales
"There are 15–50 sales of houses or apartments in Bergen every day, and for buyers, sellers, neighbours, or people moving into the neighbourhood these texts are highly relevant. So we assumed they would generate subscription sales – and we’ve been proven right. The high quality of this real estate content, combined with the fact that it’s automatically generated, provides a net value for us – and our readers."
Jan Stian Vold, Project Lead, Bergens Tidende
Automated news fills in white spots on reporting map
"By automating routine reporting, we free up editorial time and resources to create more qualified journalism which adds value for our readers and support our reader revenue business. While we have razor sharp focus on local content, we still have white spots on the reporting map. With automated texts we ensure readers in these areas too, receive regular updates about local events."
Peter Sigfridsson, Head of Production Development, Gota Media

Proof of the Pudding: The publishers’ stories
The news publishers who work with United Robots all use content automation strategically. They have found a fit at the intersection of journalism, audience and business imperatives where robots deliver real value.
This is how some of our publisher partners leverage news automation today.
Dutch junior football gets special treatment
With no fans allowed at local football games, Dutch local media group NDC have developed and launched a way to cover all matches online. The solution: automated articles and “crowd” sourced photos directly from the pitch.
Mittmedia's local sports drive engagement
Swedish local media group Mittmedia provides pretty much blanket coverage of sports for all its local communities. The automated match reports drive engagement among fans, coaches and players.
Expanded real estate texts boost subscriptions
Norwegian regional title Bergens Tidende has launched a Home Sales vertical with automated real estate articles. The texts include data analysis on property, neighbourhood, city level and more. The articles are enriched with Google streetview images, satellite maps and "drone footage" frames from Google's panorama function. All automatic.
Aftonbladet launches new local sites boosted by robot texts
Aftonbladet is Schibsted’s flagship news site in Sweden, daily reach of 3.5 mi in a country of 10 mi. Aftonbladet.se is Sweden’s go-to site for breaking news, traditionally Stockholm focussed. The publisher has now launched 230 local sites around the country, underpinned by robot content on traffic, local sports, weather and real estate.
