The 24 ORE Group is the leading multimedia publishing group active in Italy in the economic, financial, professional and cultural information sector.
The informational offer of Il Sole 24 Ore, the leading newspaper in economic, financial and regulatory information, is integrated with the Radiocor Press Agency (Italian leader in financial information), the website www.ilsole24ore.com and Radio 24, the radio news & talk, born on 1999.
The Group occupies a highly competitive market position in services for professionals and companies thanks to its databases, online services and training courses.
Il Sole 24 Ore needed to provide its editorial staff with a digital publishing platform to self-create and self-publish directly on the website www.ilsole24ore.com, the digital version of all the publications that are daily produced and sold by the group both on paper and digitally, through an integration with their editorial management system.
Ease of use, conversion speed and high level of automation of the process were the requests made in order to make the editorial staff completely independent in the publication of the various handouts, eBooks and magazines created.
The client required a flexible solution to allow their journalists and editors to create navigational summaries, add links to additional documentation and links to external in-depth pages, all without the need to write HTML code but through the use of a simple and intuitive graphic web interface.
Full integration with the editorial management system used by Il Sole 24 Ore editors for the publication of pages and articles in the various areas and thematic sections of the website was the last request.
MazzMedia has developed a fully customized version of its Digital Publishing platform "Paper App". The digital publishing platform allows access through private login to the editors of Milan and Rome. Journalists and editors can upload directly the PDF of the various publications, choose among a series of personalized templates and select the area of the website where to publish the flipbook.
The web console has also been equipped with an intuitive versioning system to allow quick changes of the PDF file for any modifications or revisions.
Through the online platform, uploaded PDFs are automatically converted into interactive digital publications for PCs, smartphones and tablets (from PDF to HTML5), available online in Cloud and optimized for each type of browser and device.
The PDF file is converted into a web app in HTML5, with the possibility of enriching the original content with multimedia and interactive elements such as photo galleries, videos, social sharing and much more.
The digital publishing platform used to convert PDF files in HTML5 digital publications has been developed to be fully compatible with the XML publishing structure of the Client's publishing system, including full integration with pages and articles on the CMS of the ilsole24ore.com
Our platform automatically generates an adaptable digital publication for each device that can be inserted in the process flow as a normal article and published in the various areas of the site depending on tag and type of topic.
The integration of our Digital Publishing platform within the Client's publishing systems has allowed journalists and editors located in different offices and business units, to publish in complete and total autonomy, at any time of the day or night and from any location, uploading the original PDF and turning it into a web-app available for all devices without the support of external agencies and without writing a single line of code.
