“Welcome to Thomson Reuters” Hosted on WordPress.com VIP

The newly formed Thomson Reuters Corp made its highly anticipated debut this past Thursday. Thomson Reuters is now the largest business focused media company in the world with 50,000 employees and annual revenues of more than $12.5 billion.

To communicate to various groups about the new combined entity, Thomson Reuters selected WordPress.com VIP to host this high-traffic and high-profile site:

The Web Communications team at Thomson Reuters was able to quickly get the site built using a custom theme. Leveraging the WordPress.com grid infrastructure, the team was able to deliver a superior user experience, particularly during the high traffic spikes.

As with other large traffic spike sites on WordPress.com VIP such as Gizmodo’s Live Blog – it’s good to know that when the world shows up at your door step, it’s an opportunity, not a problem.

  2. Glad to see you here. One suggestion if I may? An email subscription option. I’m a web developer, and I certainly understand the power and convenience of RSS, but getting updates via email is preferable to some.
