Arc Publishing expands in the German market, adding new client Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland, one of the region’s largest media companies with 13 television channels and leading digital destinations like TV NOW and n-tv.de. Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland will leverage Arc to power the newly launched news portal RTL.de.
“The launch of RTL.de is a testament to Arc’s capabilities, showcasing many of its strengths including its speed to market, superior user experience, flexible toolset, and ability to seamlessly and quickly publish and distribute broadcast content to digital platforms,” said Scot Gillespie, CTO at The Washington Post. “We congratulate Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland on the launch of their new site and we look forward to supporting their future digital plans.”
“RTL.de is an editorial product in which our journalistic competence is not just reflected in the stories themselves, but also in the front page and the section fronts,” said Walther Steinhuber, Chief Product Officer at RTL interactive. “Arc’s great flexibility and rich tool set enable us to give full control over all pages to the editorial team. Visually, RTL.de is quite different from other websites based on Arc, but with the teams at Arc and our teams working together, we were able to get the project to launch in record time.”
Arc Publishing, which leverages the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, is The Washington Post’s fast-growing software-as-a-service business.
