After successfully rolling out solutions for each of Mediahuis’ newspaper titles we spoke to their Product Owner, Michiel Van de Velde, to see why they selected PageSuite as their digital vendor…
Q: How did you decide which digital vendor to choose?
We had made a first selection to benchmark and at WAN-ifra we visited a few to investigate further.
Q: What factors made you choose PageSuite?
A: Their experience with digital publishing for newspapers and the partnership we could establish.
Q: Did you have any specific requirements during the build phase and if so, how have these been dealt with?
A: We already changed our way of delivery since GVA, HBVL, DL and choose to keep this way of delivery which proved to work for us. The only concern was the load and processing time but after some investigations this was dealt with by PageSuite without some adaptation from our side.
Q: How did you find the implementation phase and how would you describe your experience in working with PageSuite?
A: Everything went pretty smooth. By communicating a lot, we discovered some issues pretty fast and the fast reaction for dealing with them made it ok to deal with the deadline.
Q: Since launch, what feedback have you had both internally and from your readers?
A: Everybody is pleased with the change!
