OpenMagazine for eZ Publish

Automating multi-channel content creation for your digital first business.

OpenMagazine for eZ Publish is a connector between eZ Publish Enterprise and popular desktop publishing suites, like InDesign.

In today’s world of social media, tablets and smart phones, publishers have more outlets for their content than ever before, but the complexities of dealing with the ever changing landscape can require a lot of manual, repetitive work. With eZ Publish Enterprise and its exclusive repository of extensions, including eZ OpenMagazine, automation of manual work helps your content get in front of your audience quickly and easily, regardless of the channel or device.

Do you produce a magazine or daily paper and need to move its content to other channels without a lot of manual work? OpenMagazine for eZ Publish automates these processes, enabling eZ Publish to utilize the files created by most of today’s top desktop publishing programs.

Go direct from file creation to usage without manual intervention.

A magazine or any other piece of designed content can be loaded and filed in eZ Publish: this permits a very flexible multichannel management in which content can be distributed via the web, social networks, mobile phone, newsletters, and paper editions.
