Technology & Content Licensing

Making rich, fully-customisable content and cutting-edge tech available to all websites in WA

Scoop content and technology is hosted in the cloud and available for licensing (white-labelling) to websites via the Scoop Widget. The Widget allows us to share this rich, fully-customisable content and cutting-edge functionality and planning tools with multiple websites, including the ability to create and share customised trails & itineraries as part of web, EDM and social media marketing strategy. To our knowledge, there is no similar platform available in the world able to deliver the same outcomes for industry.

Working With 3rd Party Developers

Scoop is able to provide web development services. However, for business who wish to maintain their existing web developers, we are happy to provide, train and support 3rd party web developers in the use of the Scoop Widget technology and provide our Content Management services separately. A standard licensing fee will apply.

Cost

Content and technology licensing fees for small business and community organisations start at $100+gst per month and includes a free 12-month trial. A nominal setup fee may apply. More complex content and technology solutions may cost as much as $50,000 per year.

Customisable Design & Integration

The widget can be seamlessly integrated into your website so that it looks and feels like native content. Colour, fonts and number of search results can all be modified. Filters, views, language translation, search bars and all other elements can be turned on or off. Additional view options for search results (including listings and catalogue) and size of each search result, will also soon be made available. The ‘headless widget’ option is useful for integration into home page design, such as the case with Business News and Awesome.

Rich, fully-customisable content

Scoop hosts the largest online guide to arts, events and travel, including more than 6000 events, attractions and operators across WA. Content is created by individual users and then reviewed and approved by the Scoop Content Team before going live. If a category or area of content is insufficient, the Scoop Content Team can review and update as required.

Real-time Content Feed
Content on your website is updated automatically with every search from a centralised database in the cloud, such that hundreds of daily updates and new content flow to your website daily. Minimal delays may result from performance-enhancing caching.

Implementation & Maintenance

The widget is a modern web app that can be setup on your website with a piece of Javascript in less than 45 minutes. The Widget is technology-agnostic, meaning it will work with virtually any technology and provide a live data-feed, so content is updated automatically.

With the aid of training and detailed step-by-step user-guides, non-tech users should be able to perform most required functions, including setting up the widget on new pages, creating and saving customised trails, itineraries and smart-links. Detailed user-manuals are also available for IT managers wishing to implement more advanced functionality.
