The challenge

Increasing engagement with an omnichannel approach

Mediahuis is one of the largest media organizations in the Benelux, owning a dozen of media outlets, including two leading radio stations: Nostalgie and NRJ. The ultimate goal for the organization is to turn these two radio stations into strong audio brands. To achieve this objective, both stations follow an omnichannel approach.

Radioshows, online content, offline events, live messaging, and social media are all deployed to build a durable connection with the target audience. One major challenge is centralizing all customer event data: with this, commercial campaigns and marketing efforts can be rolled out more efficiently. For this, Mediahuis hoped to find a headless CMS that could easily integrate with their existing platforms and publication schedule.

The solution

A future-proof content infrastructure

After a thorough analysis, Prepr came headfirst as CMS of choice. One of the main reasons for selecting our solution was that Mediahuis already made frequent use of “Prepr for Radio” – and all desired features were present, allowing Mediahuis to create a future-proof digital architecture and content infrastructure. With Prepr, Mediahuis was able to start working with one centralized content management system, allowing them to align their visions, streamlining the process of content management, and syncing this with the dominant radio schedules.

Together with selected partner Craftzing (for building a state-of-the-art websites and mobile apps), we realized a new website and app for both radio stations, with our headless CMS as their core.

In addition, our tool Prepr Capture brought the right solution for Mediahuis to centralize all customer event data with solid GDPR compliance. This tool allows registering all interactions customers have on touchpoints, and safely stores this data. 


“Prepr is a very powerful and flexible content management platform, as their graph-technology connects content to data. With this, we can complete our digital transformation, as we are now able to show relevant content based on recommendations, and personalize content based on interaction data. A better digital experience at all touchpoints.”

The result

Storing event data and improving segments

By connecting Prepr as headless CMS and enabling Prepr Capture, Mediahuis now successfully registers customer event data such as interactions, messages, votes, and subscriptions. As a result, a more centralized and complete audience profile is built, something that allows the team to improve audience segmentation and marketing automation.

Before, Mediahuis published their content and stored their captured data on several locations, dispersing their entire workflow. The team now works from one centralized environment, syncing micro-segments with marketing automation, to deploying their efforts with a much more targeted approach.
