The Jewish Chronicle, a leading weekly publication for the Jewish community worldwide, has selected Desk as the unified content management system across digital and print.

Founded in 1841, The Jewish Chronicle is the world’s oldest and most influential Jewish newspaper. Published every week, The Jewish Chronicle offers the community up-to-date news and opinions across a wide range of topics: politics, features, health, education, food, and lifestyle, reflecting the wide diversity of Jewish religious, social and political spectrum.

Following the management’s decision to build a unified workflow between digital and print, the company selected Desk as the single editor and content management system for the entire newsroom.

The Jewish Chronicle has been using Atex for print production since 2016. Digital publishing, previously on a different platform, will now move to ACE, Atex headless CMS. In the new unified workflow, channel-neutral content will be created in Desk. Then, journalists and editors will enrich it for digital and print, leveraging the best tools for each platform.

“Our readers are looking for high-quality content, always up-to-date and available on multiple platforms. To match their demand, we are now adopting a new technology that provides a highly efficient workflow. Atex is a trusted partner, and we are happy they will support us in the process.”
– Jo Bucci, CEO, The Jewish Chronicle
