Back in 2014 TownNews, the CMS provider that currently serves over 1,600 media organizations announced an integration with Camayak to help customers scale their editorial workflows independently of continuing to customize their CMS. The integration between Camayak and BLOX – TownNews’ flagship CMS product – allows newsrooms to track all their assignments in Camayak before approving them directly for publication online.
TownNews continues to thrive despite headwinds for local media markets in the US. Earlier this year, Meredith Corporation’s Local Media Group decided to sign with TownNews for 17 of their local TV stations.
Every newsroom that uses both Camayak and BLOX has now taken advantage of the integration to manage their assignment workflow process. TownNews’ documentation of the Camayak integration is simple to follow and media organizations in five states (California, Arizona, Georgia, West Virginia and Washington) are currently working efficiently with both systems in tandem.
