What do you like best?
The fact that the product is completely customizable. I've used iNews at 3 of the 6 newsrooms on my resume and it's by-far the best newsroom computer and app program. The fact that Rundowns are easily re-tooled for different purposes... the quick keys to toggle between anything and everything... the integration with social media, news wires, video playback, and more -- not to mention the program is STABLE and not prone to crashes, freezes and reboots.
What do you dislike?
Honestly had no dislikes during my time using iNews. What would be great, however, is seamless use with live social media (e.g. Tagboard or Social News Desk), and SLACK.

Preferred over ENPS (main competitor).
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are solving the conundrum of putting together eight daily newscasts and keeping a 24/7 multi-platform news and content shop churning with planners, calendars, rundowns, scripts and so much more. We've seen benefits most notably in efficiency, reliability (in our content and items being stored, saved, etc.), and easy integration with wires and video playback we use from outside sources all feeding into iNews.
