ContentStudio 2.0 release was a huge assignment for our team. The data migration of all accounts was a mammoth task within itself. We were able to successfully migrate 40 million social and blog posts in order to protect data integrity. Under strict time constraints, we strived our best to build a version which would bring smiles to our customer’s faces.
Since the release one month ago, we have been hard at work refining and perfecting exciting new improvements to make your experience better. We are really happy to introduce the latest features to our valued users.
Let’s begin exploring them.
