CNet Sweden launched NewsToBuy, an ASP service offering small and medium sized publishers all editorial tools and cross media publishing functions needed to run a professional publishing business. Designed entirely around XML, NewsToBuy provides a cost effective solution for small publishers such as local newspapers, trade magazines and trade portals to run their web publishing business. The NewsToBuy application service offers a complete editorial system, news archive, newsletter distribution, cross media publishing to different formats and channels, integration of external news feeds as well as export of news feeds. Publishers can manage their own web portals and digital newspapers without having to install any hardware, database or content management system.

Besides publishing to web portals it is also possible to export content for paper publishing and for news syndication using XML formats such as NewsML and RSS. Another market for NewsToBuy is micro publishers such as freelance journalists and business intelligence specialists, that need to deliver news items to be included in corporate intranets and portals.
