German financial daily Borsen-Zeitung, based in Frankfurt, has transferred its editorial production to EidosMedia’s digital publishing platform Methode.
Borsen-Zeitung’s portfolio includes a daily broadsheet edition, a web portal, an e-paper edition and a mobile app. The paper’s readership in the German financial markets is mainly subscription-based.
“We were looking for a system that would allow us to edit our daily print and digital editions integrally,” said Stephan Lorz, head of the Borsen-Zeitung newsroom. “And we wanted to improve the connection to our external correspondents by better integrating them into the editorial system.”
Using the new solution, correspondents will be able to participate in the newsroom workflow via the Swing web-based interface. Swing enables remote employees to create multimedia stories from any location, according to EidosMedia.
In the first phase of the project, the Borsen-Zeitung moved production of the print daily to the new platform. In the next phases, an e-paper will be launched, generated directly from the Methode workflow.
The system serves around 80 users in Frankfurt’s central editorial office and external correspondents’ offices in Germany and abroad.
