Are you a storyteller?

Whether it’s a news article, a technical report or a tweet, if you’re creating content for an audience, you’re a storyteller and technology can help or hinder you.

Simple authoring tools

Technology has empowered modern storytelling – but often gets in the way of the authoring process by adding complexity. Eidosmedia platforms cut through the clutter to give authors a clean, friendly workspace with powerful tools and rich resources just a click away. Productivity is maximised, even for the most media-rich stories tailored for multiple destinations.

Media at your fingertips

The pictures and other media you need to complete your story appear automatically in your workspace.
Just drag them into your text. They reformat to fit – no tweaking needed.

When your story is published, each channel version will get the media format it needs –
thumbnail for social, lo-res for web, hi-res for print pages. Automatically!

No repurposing

When you create a story it’s already formatted for every destination – web, mobile, social, print – and you can preview how it will look in each. Is that headline a bit long for the homepage teaser? Shorten it and tag it for homepage only. At publication time, each destination will automatically get the right version. Forget ‘repurposing’ – just concentrate on your content.

Working as a team

Working together on the same story is easy. Each member of your team can work on a separate component:

  • Main text

  • Text box

  • Tables and charts   

  • Graphics

And it makes no difference if your team members are in the next office or in another country – you all see the whole story updated in real time, so it’s easy to coordinate your contributions.

Advanced page design

For print publications – newspapers, magazines, reports and journals – Eidosmedia gives you a page design workspace with functions that rival those of a dedicated graphic design application.

Authors and designers can work at every level from fine typographic detail up to entire multi-edition page plans.

Your stories are automatically formatted for print as well as digital, so there is total integration between print and online editions.

Integrated tools

Specialized apps like Adobe Creative Suite™ and MS Excel™ are tightly integrated with your workspace. Drag and drop charts and tables from Excel into your story. They reformat to fit.

Click on an image to edit it in an Adobe application. These objects remain ‘live linked’ and update automatically every time they are modified in the integrated application.

Multimedia authoring on the go

Use any device, from desktop PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone. As a remote user, you have a complete range of editorial workflow functions:
