Customised software for the future of the media industry

We develop news portals and mobile solutions and technically implement new business models. You can rely on our branch-specific knowledge, technological expertise and a wealth of experience to create innovative digital products and services for publishing houses and media companies. 

Cost savings and more digital sales with technological solutions

The digital world has posed a number of changes for publishers and media companies from a very early stage. Traditional publishing, in particular, is under pressure – the circulation of German daily newspapers has fallen by an average of 4% per year over the last decade. As print production and distribution costs continue to rise, the digital business cannot stand still.   

Digital media consumption opens up numerous opportunities for successful business models. Enterprise content management platforms are our particular strength. Cross-media content, alternative subscription models, personalisation of offers and AI-based recommendations are other areas in which we are well-versed and available as your IT partner.

News portal and app

Digital channels and new business models have never been more important. With Purple DS as a platform toolkit, we provide the technological basis for news websites and apps geared towards your readers‘ needs.

Content Management

The old divisions between media genres are disappearing. We configure and implement a headless CMS with a decoupled frontend and backend, so you only have to edit your content once before publishing it everywhere.


Customers expect smooth digital access to your media. We support you with paywall, entitlement, and subscription solutions so you can pick up your readers where they are – in the digital space.

AI and ML

Data on content and user behaviour can drive your business models forward. Our data scientists can help you with automatic internal article linking, personalisation of content and offers or a holistic data strategy.

Audience Development

Turning anonymous users into loyal customers is the core of sustainable business development. We work with you to implement solutions in areas such as marketing automation, personalised advertising and churn prevention.

Affiliate Marketing

Publishers such as Burda and Axel Springer are tapping into additional sources of revenue thanks to affiliate marketing. We support you with automated affiliate links and are familiar with the Amazon model for publishers.

Selected tech stack for the media world

We know our way around the creation, distribution and monetisation of media content. We select the right technologies for you, develop your customised software iteratively and rely on established systems that are adaptable.   


We mainly use Purple DS as our CMS, but also Directus, Contentful and others – depending on the specific application.  

Cloud services

For the cloud-based production and distribution of your content, we rely on AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and Kubernetes for dynamic scalability.  


We are familiar with Google Analytics, Firebase, Adobe Analytics and Matomo for web and app data analyses.
