Digital, sustainable and future-proof

Content-first thanks for a multichannel concept

The most important content on the right channel, for the right readers, at the right time – whether for print or online. The CMS displays all content on the various channels automatically.

Working on a text as a team

Whether it be authors or editors, everyone can work together on the relevant content. Revision cycles are shorter and the content is always up-to-date. Purple DS Hub centralises your content and processes, allowing you to enjoy simplified workflows, save time, and give your editors more scope for creativity.

Financial saving

Using Purple DS Hub in combination with tohoop not only facilitates a more efficient workflow; it also enables financial savings. Licensing fees for your print CMS and InDesign may no longer be required.

Monetisation of services

Personalised services provide opportunities to offer various subscription models – because the readers decide which content they want to receive, and subscribe accordingly. New sales channels are also unlocked.
