Highlights

You find everything in the Newspool

The Newspool contains all self-generated and imported content (e.g. from dpa, Reuters or ots). With the help of the Search-as-you-type feature you can quickly find the hits for your search term. The filter options allow you to limit the search result to specified categories (e.g. sport) and the searched status (e.g. online, offline,...). Select a message and add it to a Newslist.

Gather contents in News Lists

Create News Lists for specific topics, e.g. sports or news. With the help of the News Lists, the contents are deployed via newsboxes on the website or in other channels. You can use category subscriptions to ensure that the latest news is always included in your News List. The contents of a News List can be manually sorted by drag & drop or pinned to a specific position (e.g. second one down).

Create news quickly

To create a news item, click on the green plus sign in the upper left corner. The well-structured process supports you optimally in creating your message. In the "Meta" area, select the appropriate categories and tags for your message and define the article type.

Define the article structure yourself

In the "Story" area, you create the content of your message next to the central article image. You have numerous assets at your disposal for this, with which you can design your article in an appealing way. Select content elements such as headings, sections, images, image galleries, forms, or downloads as required to make your article more interesting. You can change the order of elements in the Articles area using drag & drop. 

Teasers are pre-filled

On the basis of the previously created contents, headline, and intro, different teasers are automatically pre-filled in order to simplify the creation of the message. Depending on the output medium and available space, long and short teasers can be used to draw attention to your message. All pre-filled content may be edited to improve the result.

SEO inclusive

The CONTENS Newsroom prepares content so that it can be optimally indexed by search engines. Even before publishing, you will see a preview in the "Teaser" area of the page of how your message will be displayed in the Google search results. The SEO title and description are drawn from the existing content and can then be further optimized afterwards.

Choose related topics

In the "More" area, select the categories that can be displayed as "related topics" in conjunction with your message. These are based on the categories you have selected for your messages. "Related topics" provide readers with additional information that may also be of interest to them.

Online in one click

In the "Publication" section, you specify whether your message is to be published or taken offline at a specific time. To do this, simply select the desired date and time. When updating an existing news item, you can specify whether the updated item should be pushed to the top in the respective news lists. To post very quickly, you can publish a message with just the three mandatory details at any time, using the green "Save and publish" button. 

Create once, deploy anywhere

With the Newsroom, content can be quickly generated, easily prepared, and deployed many times over. Create your own content in an optimized workflow or use existing content from other agencies. Define in the News Lists where each item is to be deployed. Automatically deploy your content after publication in predefined places, e.g. on websites, in apps, PWAs, or info terminals. The output display can be predefined centrally or editorially modified with Newsboxes.

Cloud Technologies for Scalability and High Availability

In the CONTENS Newsroom you can easily create structured content or import content from connected providers. The system runs in the cloud and uses the latest AWS technologies to ensure scalability and high availability, such as docker-based microservices for newsroom logic and image scaling, ElasticSearch cluster for high-performance delivery and full-text search, and Amazon S3 for storing binary data. Access is via the REST interface, e.g. from CMS, web apps, native apps, language assistants, or newsletter systems.

Flexible Newsroom API

The flexible Newsroom API gives you easy access to all centrally stored content. For example, you can select individual news items (on the left), the contents of a News List (middle) or all available News Lists (right) to output them in web apps, PWAs, native apps, and other applications.
