Prestigious award for a top service: At this year’s international Hospitality Awards organised by Lux Life Magazine, Munich-based media service provider Media Carrier received the “Best Global eReading Service 2019”.
Each year, the UK magazine – a premium product published by AL Global Media – recognises the best of the best operating in the international leisure, travel and hospitality sector, including top hotels and restaurants but also products, individuals and innovative services such as the digital media library provided by Media Carrier.
“We are delighted about this great appreciation and award. It mirrors our ongoing endeavour to always satisfy our customers in the travel and hospitality sector to our best abilities with
our innovative service, the provision of digital content and our comprehensive expertise,” says Media Carrier managing director Philipp J. Jacke.
Founded in 2011, Media Carrier GmbH specialises in the distribution of digital newspapers and magazines. The company’s digital media library, Media Box, is particularly popular with travel industry clients. The “Software as a Service”(SaaS) product can be integrated anywhere in the world. It is ideal for customer-focused service companies wanting to provide
their customers and guests with a special, smart, on-the-go service and up-to-date premium publications. Based on customer requirements, Media Carrier sources digital newspaper and magazine editions from publishers around the world and curates individual portfolios, using its proprietary technical distribution solution: The company’s e-paper tool is web-based and can therefore be used with any web-enabled device, no matter if Apple or Android, tablet PC or notebook. Users neither need to install an app nor register with private data.
They just connect their device to the local Wi-Fi to access digital reading content (via a landing page) and choose from more than 1,500 international premium publications for download. Readers only need to click on the desired publication to download a user-friendly pdf that is easy to use. If required, pdfs can be saved to be read at a later time.
Media Carrier’s digital content library is also a highly sustainable service with clear benefits in this area: No matter how many people want to read a magazine at the same time, digital
editions of any regional, national or international publication can never be sold out and are always available and up to date. Figures show that the use of digital publications is significantly more environmentally friendly: Lufthansa, who has been providing its passengers with Media Carrier’s media library since 2014, was so far able to save about 7,147 tons of paper.
Media Carrier was founded in 2011 as a subsidiary of the Munich-based MELO Group that focuses on the two core business divisions media and logistics. Media Carrier GmbH specialises in the marketing and distribution of digital content. It provides the travel industry with digital publications through its Media Box product. The digital media library is successfully being deployed around the world by, among others, major airlines, such as Lufthansa, Virgin Atlantic, Austrian Airlines, Eurowings, SWISS and Singapore Airlines, as well as more than 1,200 hotel (e.g., Crowne Plaza, Dorint Hotels, Intercontinental Hotels & Resorts, Vienna House, Holiday INN, Fleming Hotels, Intercity Hotels, Mandarin Oriental, Sofitel, Steigenberger). Media Carrier also works with hospitals, clinics and public bodies.
