The U.S. News & World Report challenge

In 2014, as U.S. News & World Report grew its digital presence, the organization realized its legacy CMS had become a hindrance to long-term scalability and innovation. Editors and journalists wasted time creating complicated workarounds for an outdated platform, which ultimately delayed publishing timelines.

It’s been four years since the initial implementation, and our editorial staff continues to be very happy with the CMS. U.S. News anticipates using Brightspot for many years to come.
