ELLE.com (one of the best known titles in the Hachette Filipacchi Media stable) is the insider's style guide with a global outlook, delivering fashion, beauty, style, service and shopping in an accessible and attainable format. When faced with the decision of choosing a new web content management system, ELLE decided on eZ Publish as their chosen open source web CMS. The eZ Publish enterprise platform was chosen because of its true multichannel and multimedia capabilities that would allow ELLE to manage and deliver content across a variety of channels such as mobile, newsletters, video, audio, e-commerce and of course web.

Through eZ Publish's flexible and highly customizable content engine ELLE was able to use a web CMS that allowed not only the creation of a rich media portal that generates high traffic and builds on the brands global presence but it also gave ELLE a web CMS that allowed them to manage and deliver content how, when and where they wanted.

While maintaining ELLE's unique sophisticated tone, ELLE.com presents a behind-the-scenes, how-to world. ELLE.com attracts 1,832,758 Unique Visitors per Month, 1.5 Average Visits/Unique Visitors & 7+ Average Minutes per Visit.
