In order for the Foreign Office to be able to tackle the dizzying number of requests, Aperto has created a powerful, central content management system. The CoreMedia-based system can be accessed by the 3,500 content editors around the world, around the clock. This enables the managers of each country’s site to use information from the central system without complicated installation or programming requirements.
The missions abroad have access to image galleries, videos, external links and complete theme packs, all in the relevant language. The local editors don’t even have to update this content themselves: changes to the central database is automatically updated on all country sites.
The collaboration with the Foreign Office is currently underway, with Aperto developing a mobile version of the website through adaptation of the CSS.
