Bayleys is New Zealand's largest full-service real estate agency.

"Bayleys has found - as I am sure other corporates, local and national Government bodies, and raft of social, cultural and sporting organisations have undoubtedly found - that infonews has been invaluable for circulating news editorial to a wide range of readers and users throughout not only New Zealand, but also around the globe.

"With the changing dynamics of communications, niche interest web and blog sites are constantly looking for well written, ready-to-use copy and images relevant to their specific readers or target markets. Increasingly, news collation and distribution media outlets such as infonews are being seen as valuable providers of that news copy.

"Bayleys has tracked numerous instances where editorial copy hosted on the infonews website has been picked up and reformatted for republication on other e-media sites. With the world becoming ever-smaller through increasing use of on-line and mobile communications, it is critical to keep abreast of these new technologies, while at the same time relying on the long-established professional practices and ethics of journalism and news reporting. infonews does this extremely well.

"Over the past two years, Bayleys has seen the number of readers of our material hosted on infonews grow markedly - an obvious reflection of the increasing credence with which this media service is being given by members of the public as its reputation grows. That is why the communications team at Bayleys ensures that the infonews newsroom is always one of the first recipients to receive our news releases."
