Imagine reporting to your board that you've slashed CMS costs without losing an ounce of functionality. Forget the old ways of each publisher bearing the brunt of their CMS expenses. Sharing the cost with 260 newspapers means you're paying less for more.

In fiscal leadership, the mandate is clear: deliver more for less. As CFOs navigate the intricate balance between cost-cutting and bolstering innovation, the advent of shared digital platforms delivered from the Cloud like Labrador CMS stands out. 

1. Cost sharing is the new era of Economies of Scale

By adopting Labrador CMS, publishers are  upgrading their digital tools. At the same time they are subscribing to a cost-sharing model that promises substantial savings. This is not a theoretical benefit but a tangible one that sees costs distributed across a network of 260 newspapers. It's a financial strategy that transforms the CMS from a sunk cost into a shared investment, significantly lowering the fiscal barrier to entry for cutting-edge technology.

2. Let Your Reporters Outpace the News Cycle

In publishing, time is directly proportional to money. The faster a story hits the market, the quicker it can generate traction and revenue. Labrador CMS's best-in-class user interface and AI-powered article completion functions are gold to your editorial efficiency; and reporters and editors love it. These features also represent a shift in resource optimization. For CFOs, this translates into a direct impact on the bottom line, with increased productivity driving down the cost per article and boosting the potential for profitability. Faster publishing means more content, which means more ad revenue or subscribers. It's a simple equation.

3. Triple Your Tech ROI Without Buying a Single Server

In a traditional setting, the balance sheet is burdened with the constant costs of updates and integrations. The third pillar of the Labrador CMS financial value proposition is the tripling of development speed, eliminating the dead weight of technical debt that  accompanies legacy systems. Labrador CMS is delivered as an auto-updated system. We update your code every week, without you loosing your custom magic on top. This means that the money typically reserved for system maintenance can be reallocated to areas of growth and innovation.

In short you get more for less

The conclusion for CFOs is: Labrador CMS is not just another operational expense; it's a financial instrument designed to maximize editorial output while minimizing cost. Labrador CMS represents more than just a technological leap; it’s a fiscal strategy that aligns seamlessly with the objectives of growth-minded leaders. 

It's time to cash in on the CMS that pays for itself and then some.
