EO launches first portals on new content management platform

Dutch national broadcaster EO launches the first two portals on their new content management platform. This platform consists of a modern JAMstack solution with Prepr as the central CMS, resulting in a flexible, scalable, and cost-efficient solution.

The Evangelische Omroep (EO) is one of the largest public broadcasters in the Netherlands. With TV and radio programs with a religious basis, and increasingly with online content as well.

The challenge

The digital landscape of the EO consisted of a multitude of websites and CMSs. A complex whole that was expensive to maintain and also hindered rapid innovation. That's why the digital team decides it is time for a new approach. A new flexible content management platform must be created, with one central CMS and modern front-end applications.

The process

The in-house development team of EO develops the portal. From concept and design to creating the front ends and connecting the Prepr CMS. The team decides to apply a modern JAMstack architecture, using Javascript, APIs, and Markup to develop fast, secure, and scalable websites. EO uses VUE.js and NuxtJS to build front-end applications and Prepr as the central CMS.

With this approach, EO creates a clear separation between content management and the presentation layer, ensuring optimal flexibility in organizing and presenting content. As per program, per theme, per topic, and per channel.

The EO chooses Prepr as its headless CMS because of its comprehensive content management and optimization features. In particular, the options to easily integrate content from other systems, personalize content, send notifications, and make recommendations in the future.

Also, Prepr's extensive experience with content management for media companies plays a vital role in the decision.

The result

The EO launched EO.nl and the "About us" website as the first in a series of websites. Shortly, all other websites will be transferred to the new platform as well. With this milestone, EO takes an essential step in the digital transformation journey. Resulting in a flexible and scalable platform that supports the content strategy, makes editors work more efficiently, and reduces operational costs.
