Categorical is dedicated to empowering editors while simplifying their work
Categorical has been working hand-in-hand with content publishers for years monitoring the editorial workflow used by editors to gather, curate and publish web content. We understand editorial customs and habits. This places us in a position to best understand where there are bottlenecks and opportunities for improvement. Working closely with editors we have built software that makes it easier to find relevant web content, manage and curate this content and publish it to the web and newsletters.
