Access anywhere, anytime
Our editorial system makes work and collaboration from a distance easy. From on-the-scene reporters to editors to print layout designers, everyone can work from the environment of their choice as if they were in the same room. Access iCMS using any device. All you need is a browser of your choice and an internet connection.
Imagine a situation in which a journalist witnesses something extremely newsworthy. They want to report the breaking news to the online editor and send in their story for publication as soon as possible. Additionally, the story is relevant for three of your portals, which all have different target audiences and, ideally, need their own titles and leads to make it more appealing for that specific group of readers. Furthermore, the editor works remotely while the rest of the staff, including the print layout designer, is at the office. On top of this, it is close to deadline time - both your online and offline staff are busy, but your media company must have this story of extreme importance on the front page of your newspaper the next morning. While a situation like this may seem far-fetched to some, those who work in media, especially in multi-publishing, know that this group of problems is not uncommon. So your media company must have an editorial system able to tackle it.
With Netrix iCMS, it would all be very smooth and quick. Firstly, this interface can run on any device. Secondly, it is practical and handy. Therefore, the on-the-scene reporter in our theoretical scenario would only need a browser and internet connection, and they could immediately type and send their stories right into the heart of the central editorial system. The editor, wherever they are, would see the new story in iCMS, proofread and approve it. They can also create multiple versions of the original text for the different online and offline platforms if needed. As soon as the editor completes their work, the system informs the layout designer so they can insert the already theme-shaped text into InDesign and finalize it for print publication. If, at this stage, they realize that further modifications are needed in the text – for example, cutting it shorter for print publishing – then any authorized person in the workflow can modify it accordingly, allowing the layout designer to ready it for the newspaper. Meanwhile, management can track the whole workflow, getting a clear picture of the process.
To sum up, the main advantages of using iCMS in terms of accessibility are:
- you can access it anywhere
