“Media you can imagine” – that is the new theme for the AME Group, as launched on its website which went live today (Monday, August 5).
“Our new payoff line sums up the group and inspires us to keep pushing the boundaries of broadcast and online communication while leveraging the synergies to the benefit of our clients as well as the Group,” says Group Chief Executive Officer Dave Tiltmann.
“A JSE-listed company needs to have a great website as it is the face of our Group,” he says.
The new website will help keep staff, the Board, regulators and other stakeholders, as well as present and future shareholders, and market analysts updated on developments within AME.
A redesign was required because of the evolution of the AME Group from its focus on radio to offering a full range of digital and social media platforms.
“We wanted to showcase the depth of the Group, as well as our skills in website design and content provision. We have a lot to be proud of and all the latest Group news and regulatory updates will be posted regularly to keep the site fresh. I would like to focus on constantly updating all the good news from the subsidiaries within the AME Group,” says Dave.
The site was designed and built by Digital Platforms, one of the companies in the AME Group family.
“The website boasts the latest mobile-friendly development framework. It caters for all devices but focuses on the mobile experience,” says Digital Platforms sales manager Nico Van Der Westhuizen.
A dedicated team will keep the website updated.
Nico says Digital Platforms “is a strategic website design and development company conveniently located in the heart of South Africa, Bloemfontein. We specialise in web, software and app development
