Main Challenges

A re-launched media brand aimed to unify lifestyle and news content that was previously scattered across multiple platforms by creating two new websites and integrating them with their primary streaming service platform.

Streamline Content Management

Given the significant effort required to produce original content, the company aimed to streamline the publishing process as much as possible by adopting the ‘three-clicks-to-publish’ concept.

Bring All Channels Together

The company wanted to optimize its online ecosystem to give customers seamless access to content across all genres and formats through a uniform slick interface that works perfectly on any screen and device.

Custom Solution

Software developers from Axamit have built a tailored AEM-based content management system to help the client’s content managers publish site pages fast using custom content fragments and automated workflows.

Using the Vue.js framework, our front-end developers built user-friendly sites that follow SEO best practices to ensure fast page loading, indexing in Google, and high visibility in search results.

Workflow 1 Form-Based Workflow

To streamline processes we created a custom publishing workflow in the admin panel. To create a page, editors select a page type, fill in a form, and click publish. The system automatically lays out the submitted text and media files, resulting in a new fully designed page on the site.

Video camera 2 Seamless Use of Video 

Due to integrations between the CMS and the client’s internal systems, content managers can add a video to a page by simply using its ID from the company’s video hosting repository. The system adjusts the video automatically for it to be displayed in the right place on the page in the required dimensions.

Globe 1 Core Web Vitals

Site performance was optimized to improve user experience by ensuring fast loading, interactivity, and visual stability of pages.

Group 686 1 Structured Data

The recommended structured data markup was added across pages to enable rich results on Google search, resulting in better ranking and higher click-through rates.
