We are delighted to announce the launch of a new ePaper and ePaper SDK for ‘Het Nieuwsblad’. Readers of Het Nieuwsblad are now able to read the ePaper on desktop, mobile and tablet devices via PageSuite’s market-leading solution. Further to this, our ePaper SDK has enabled Mediahuis to ‘plug in’ the ePaper component to their existing iOS and Android apps which were developed in-house.
Michiel Van de Velde, Product Owner at Mediahuis said; “The launch of ‘Het Nieuwsblad’ our largest newspaper – was the smoothest and most successful launch thanks to the efforts of all teams, both internally and externally. Thanks to the good cooperation with PageSuite, we have successfully been able to migrate all our titles on our new platform in a short time.”
Mediahuis have been able to customise the look and feel of the ePaper that resides within their apps to ensure that it stays on-brand. In some of the apps, Mediahuis offer readers the option to view either the replica ePaper content or a ‘digitally-optimised’ version so that they can consume content in their preferred format.
PageSuite has been working with Mediahuis, a leading media group in Belgium and Netherlands, since 2015 when they collaborated on a similar project for ‘De Standaard’. Since then, they have continued to roll out solutions for each of their newspaper titles.
