“Due to the simple and web-based operation of the system, our editors were immediately able to work with the system.
Now we can produce in a smaller team that is half as large as in the use of traditional content management systems. And since everything appears automatically online, we are able to release stories in real time.”
Steffen Schindler, CEO
