GateHouse Media, one of the largest publishers of locally-based online and print media in the United States, has selected the NEWSCYCLE Solutions ONSET digital CMS platform to manage more than 500 community and business publication websites. The partnership with NEWSCYCLE provides GateHouse with a unified environment to produce and share digital content across its network of local websites serving over 35 million unique visitors each month.

“We selected to upgrade to NEWSCYCLE’s new Drupal 8-based ONSET platform, believing it will set us on the best path to continue to operate at scale and be as nimble as we can as we grow and the media environment changes”

Senior Director of Digital Development, GateHouse

For GateHouse, ONSET will provide:

  • 100 unique modules on top of Drupal 8 core that are built specifically for news media organizations

  • Streamlined content creation and publishing process for all web, mobile and print channels

  • A mobile-first workflow, releasing reporters from their desks and laptops to gather and publish news when and where it happens

  • Integrated social media support

  • The foundation for a single, unified content hub across GateHouse properties

The platform will also enable the GateHouse development team to customize within the platform and work closely with NEWSCYCLE for ongoing improvements to keep pace as digital content distribution and consumption evolves.

“Drupal 8 has the potential to evolve digital storytelling in a significant way. We are as intrigued with the entrepreneurial flexibility as we are with the development opportunities”

Senior Vice President of News, GateHouse

The ONSET platform at GateHouse will be hosted in the NEWSCYCLE Cloud, which combines the robustness of Amazon Web Services with the stability and scalability of NEWSCYCLE’s dedicated network and security operations center.
