What is editorial workflow management software?

Editorial workflow management is the process to create a finished piece of content ready for publishing. Whether publishing to a magazine CMS, a newspaper CMS or other content distribution platform, the process to write, report and edit content is crucial. Depending on the size of the organization, its mission and the type of content, the workflows are different. The overarching purpose of editorial content management is to provide an effective way to simplify the publishing process.

The critical ingredients for editorial workflow management are the content distribution platform and  content repository. Integrated in the workflow, the content distribution platform automates the publishing of the finished content to all the relevant channels and destinations. A secure, centralized content repository gives writers, editors and designers access and transparency to content, pictures and resources to streamline tasks, approvals and finalization. These technology tools support the people and processes for an organized and efficient editorial workflow.

Editorial workflow management software overview

OpenText™ Content Hub for Publishers is purpose-built digital asset management software for the news and information publishing industry, designed to support the content publishing workflow of today’s digital newsroom. It handles the large volumes of content that newsrooms across the world are exposed to daily and efficiently manages editorial workflows and digital content distribution. Content Hub for Publishers provides comprehensive digital publishing software including a syndication portal, allowing packaged content to be made available to clients for licensing and syndication purposes.

By placing content in a central hub with editorial workflow management software, newspaper software and editorial photography, CHP supports new business models that allow iterative workflows across the organization with full control, access and transparency as content is created, repackaged, tracked and published to multiple channels and outlets. Content Hub for Publishers meets the unique, ever-changing and challenging demands of today’s publishing industry.
