How does Reuters Connect save my company money?
Reuters Connect uses a flexible points system. This allows you to use points only on what you download. It gives you access to all visual content from Reuters and our partners, without having to pay for multiple subscriptions or multiple feeds, from multiple suppliers. Additionally, Reuters Points come in quarterly allocations, providing you with a better return on your third-party content spend.

How does Reuters Connect save time and improve editorial efficiency?

It does this in three ways:

1.     All Reuters content is now in one, easy-to-use platform. This includes text, video, pictures and infographics for breaking stories happening right now, as well as stories dating back to 1896.

2.     One search will return assets from multiple content providers.

3.     Our story-centric view allows you to see how and when a story originated, showing you the very latest content to the very first mention.
