Media Group RTL Germany launches intranet with CONTENS

(PresseBox) (München, ) The intranet of the Media Group RTL Germany as well as the company intranets of RTL Television, VOX, infoNetwork, CBC, IP Deutschland, RTL interactive and n-tv have recently started running on the content management platform CONTENS.

The intranet of the Media Group RTL Germany, one of the leading media enterprises in Germany, has recently been based upon the CMS platform CONTENS. At the same time, the company intranets of RTL Television, VOX, infoNetwork, CBC, IP Deutschland, RTL interactive und n-tv were also changed to CONTENS.

For the intranet's relaunch special efforts were made to provide the staff members of the Media Group RTL Germany with preferably high returns in relation to their daily work. In order to ensure a smooth access to the intranet Single Sign-On was integrated, which makes the entry of an intranet password no longer necessary. For this purpose the CONTENS module "Single-Sign-On" was upgraded in favour of an automatic adjustment of user data and user groups.

Another improvement allows the associates to save commonly needed sites individually under "My favorites". These may include external websites as well as intranet pages. For this purpose each intranet page provides the function "Add to favorites".

Further customisation options have been facilitated through widgets, which every associate can integrate as required into their respective intranet screen. Amongst others a widget, an n-tv news widget, a translation and a currency widget are available. Alongside the commonly accessible pages for all employees the new intranet also features secured page locations which only certain groups have access to.

The new intranet also offers a number of facilitations for the editorial staff. The very clear WYSIWYG interface as well as the easy to use page functions of CONTENS noticeably simplify creation and editing of data content. Two individual upgrades additionally optimise picture work: Image galleries can be very easily filled by using a flash-based mass upload. Moreover images can now be directly integrated into a text field. Together with the well-proven image upload the editorial scope for design is thereby considerably augmented.

The migration of the intranets to CONTENS provides a multitude of conveniences also from an administrative point of view. The need for maintenance is minimized to merely one installation which significantly reduces time and effort.

Christoph Simons, CBC Head of Channel Management: "For the highly diverse requirements of the several intranets that are controlled by one system we depend on a user-friendly and flexible cms. Since CONTENS meets a multiplicity of the demands we have collectively opted for CONTENS within the Media Group RTL Germany."

Conceptual design and implementation of this large-scale relaunch project were realised by the IT experts of CBC (Cologne Broadcasting Center, in close cooperation with the CONTENS Professional Services Team.
