E&P: Media companies in three countries now using controversial Atex system

Editor & Publisher this morning reports that a total of six media organisations, across three countries, have transferred to Atex’s advertising, editorial and Web content management system in recent weeks.

The controversial editorial CMS is now being used by the Erdee Media Groep in The Netherlands and The Sun in Arizona.

Just this week Journalism.co.uk reported that the NUJ had raised strong concerns over Johnston Press’s move to Atex, which it claimed “undermines the editorial independence of editors”.

    If you read the E&P piece, you’ll see this is wrong.
    Atex isn’t a content management system – it’s a company that produces various bits of software for print and web publishing but also for advertising sales, serving and circulation.
    The E&P piece includes non-CMS products that are nothing to do with the systems being used at Johnston.

    Thank you for your comment. I will amend the first line to make it clearer. The E&P piece does however say that the editorial content management system is being used by a number of these companies and will clarify this point.
