Reading UK— Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (F.A.Z), one of Germany’s largest newspapers, has signed an agreement with Atex to deploy the Polopoly Web content management solution across all of its properties including its main news website FAZ.NET, which averages 22 million visits and more than 116 million page impressions per month.
F.A.Z chose the Atex solution after having carried out an extensive testing phase with many of the market vendors. Throughout the evaluation process Polopoly proved its ability to adapt to the publisher’s editorial requirements. Polopoly also showed ease of integrating with F.A.Z’s existing applications including the publisher’s photo archive and Atex Editorial CMS.
The test phase was conducted in cooperation with Netpioneer, an Atex certified implementation partner who will be responsible for the global roll out of Polopoly at F.A.Z.
“We were delighted to see how fast the system could adapt to our requirements,” said Kai N. Pritzsche, Responsible Editor for FAZ.NET. “In addition, we felt that Netpioneer’s profound understanding of editorial processes was a decisive factor for the efficient implementation of the project.”
Florian Pütz, Manager of FAZ.NET, added: “The test phase approach, the Polopoly platform itself, and the close interaction between Atex and Netpioneer strongly influenced our selection process.”
“We are delighted to count F.A.Z. as one of our prestigious customers. This is further proof that Polopoly is one of the only solutions on the market that supports dynamic publishing of content in large scale environments,” said Gustaf Sahlman, Atex’s Global Director of Products. “Our sophisticated caching technology will enable F.A.Z. to handle traffic peaks with reasonable hardware requirements.”
