By the numbers
National Geographic’s legacy CMS made posting content a time-consuming and manual process for producers and editors. The site was overly complex on the back end and wasn’t providing visitors with the stunning visual experiences that the company was known for on the front end.
It's a Ferrari of a system. Brightspot has an incredibly fast, sleek front end, and the back end is intuitive, simple and effective. Basically, it helps us publish faster.
The Brightspot solution
In just three months, Brightspot empowered National Geographic to create immersive multimedia experiences with a smoother editorial process and a reduced reliance on IT.
Project highlights include
- Seamless integration with National Geographic's corporate online video platform, Comcast MPX, making it possible for the brand to manage, host, and present compelling video content.
- A company-wide taxonomy system for tagging related content, which significantly simplified and sped up editorial and development workflows by increasing content discoverability.
- The ability to showcase curated content easily with featured videos and editor’s picks sections on National Geographic's enhanced, fully responsive front end.
