The German news-media company is switching its editorial technology to EidosMedia's digital publishing solution.
The publishers of leading German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (F.A.Z.) have decided to move their editorial operations to EidosMedia’s Méthode digital editing and publishing platform. The Méthode solution will allow the print and digital editions of the newspaper to be created from a common workflow.
"The interaction of print and digital will be considerably simplified by Méthode's modern infrastructure and save us a number of manual work steps," said Chief Digital Officer Thomas Schultz-Homberg.
F.A.Z. is one of Germany’s leading newspapers and an authoritative voice in both the national and international spheres. Its daily mission is to provide readers with carefully reseached reporting, precise analysis, authoritative commentary and lively debate. Its high-quality journalism aims at independence, political, economic and social relevance.
An editorial staff of over 300 delivers quality journalism in print and digital media every day. The award-winning editorial team has one of the largest correspondent networks of any daily newspaper in the world.
In addition to its newsroom facilities, F.A.Z. will also use Swing, EidosMedia’s mobile workspace. This makes it possible for colleagues in the company to participate in the editorial workflow from any location using any mobile device from laptop to smartphone.
Production of the print newspaper and magazines will be organized and managed using Méthode's multi-edition planning system.
Editor-in-chief Dr Elena Geus said: "With EidosMedia’s Méthode we have found the best solution to produce and publish our current journalistic products, as well as developing new ones quickly and flexibly for our readers and users."
The new platform will serve 320 users in the central Frankfurt editorial office and around 60 correspondents worldwide.
