Shorthand has transformed how we produce our digital longform journalism. From the beginning, we were able to produce stories which were far more visually engaging than our own CMS allows us to do.

Ronan Hughes, Output Editor, Sky News

Shorthand stories published by Stuff usually have really high engagement. Generally, we see two to three minutes, which is really high. And most of our stories also see over 70,000 pageviews — sometimes much more than that.
