About the Project

  • McPherson Media Group (MMG) is one of the largest privately owned media groups in Australia, encompassing a number of brands and entities across the continent. MMG is working with LoginRadius and Syncronex, who markets its’ product with Newscycle Solutions as a Digital Paymeter, to seamlessly integrate the value of a cIAM solution with the ability to monetize digital content with a pay metering system. Together, the solutions are providing a best in-class user experience.


  • Consolidating the data that was being gathered in silos across all of the MMG and digital tools.
  • Monetizing digital content.
  • Fully leveraging digital tools like Google Analytics and MailChimp.
  • Ensuring a consistent and smooth user experience.


  • “LoginRadius and Syncronex made this project a reality. The combined solution is user friendly, it was implemented quickly, and they were able to solve a bunch of our digital problems in one shot. Their flexibility in business and in platform was really attractive to us and we are really happy with the results.” Glenn James - CTO, McPherson Media Group.


  • After evaluating several potential vendors, MMG decided to work with LoginRadius and Syncronex because of their flexibility in business and solution. Considered separately, each platform represented a unique offering that no other vendor was able to come close to matching when it comes to functionality and overall valueadded.
  • LoginRadius provides:
    • SSO
    • Social Login
    • User Analytics
    • Integration Platform access


  • Syncronex provides:
    • Content Metering
    • Registration wall
    • Digital Subscription platform
    • LoginRadius plugin
  • When integrated together, LoginRadius and Syncronex provide a seamless and highly customizable user journey. With this, MMG was able to design a user flow that would best complement their marketing strategy; prompting users to register for an account after reaching the limit of free articles, and incentivizing this by offering additional free articles before requiring payment.


  • All existing user accounts were securely migrated to the LoginRadius cloud storage, preserving all profile data and user credentials
  • Full Implementation with the Syncronex digital subscription platform in 11 weeks.
  • A Hosted Page was used for fast deployment of the cIAM solution, this allows readers to login and register on a single “Hosted Page” that is linked from the individual brand sites.
  • Seamless connection between the LoginRadius platform, the Syncronex paywall solution, Google Analytics, and MailChimp.
  • Now a user can login one time and move seamlessly from being a casual user to a registered user, and ultimately a subscriber, all within the MMG ecosystem.
