CFE Media announces launch of ContentStream

Engineering readers benefit from integrated information delivery.


CFE Media LLCCFE Media LLC has launched ContentStream, a service that delivers targeted B2B news, analysis, popular articles, and video content to vendors for use in their online communications. To support this content sharing service, CFE Media launched a patent-pending software service designed to make the selection and integration of topic-focused content fast and easy for users. CFE Media launches the service with content from its three titles – Control Engineering, Consulting-Specifying Engineer, and Plant Engineering – and will expand its stable of content with useful information published by experts, industry thought leaders, and organizations in the manufacturing, commercial and industrial industries.

Unlike traditional RSS feeds, which require users to use a small fraction of published material, ContentStream delivers complete content in a variety of formats directly to a customer’s content management system and ultimately their websites. “They are free to mix and match their own content with materials from ContentStream, all with the intention of creating the best user experience and a steady flow of interested and engaged visitors,” explains CFE Media CEO Steve Rourke.

“With the explosion of information available online, B2B consumers have countless choices when choosing the content they wish to consume. We want to help them rely more on vendors as a trustworthy source. ContentStream ensures a creditable source of content will be integrated into a vendor’s existing website or e-newsletters. The focused content will attract targeted audiences and will present vendors as thought leaders, allowing them to build a loyal following. ContentStream makes it easier for users to find the right content fast, by enhancing the material, adding relevant tagging, and categorizing it to assist searches and delivery,” explains Steve Rourke.

Vendors who are interested in educating an online audience need a steady flow of trustworthy content. With ContentStream, content can be delivered directly to them when and where they need it.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
