Superdesk is a state-of-the-art digital newsroom system. It combines headless CMS functionality with powerful workflow features for an end-to-end news creation, production, curation and distribution platform. Built alongside journalists in the newsroom, it has a modular, API-centric design that enables news organisations to add and adapt the functionality most relevant to their business. Superdesk is open-source, web-based, and integrates easily with legacy systems as well as third-party applications.
Whether you run a global media empire, publish a custom newsletter or something in between, Superdesk is for you. While Superdesk was designed with the specific needs of news agencies in mind, it is not only for large-scale newsrooms. If your newsletter turns into a multi-channel subscription news service, Superdesk will scale with your enterprise: in all scenarios, your writers and editors will use the same intuitive tools and interfaces for creating, editing and distributing content ranging from text articles to multimedia packages.
Superdesk workflows are created and controlled by your editorial users, not imposed on them by the newsroom software.
Manage the production process from creation to distribution across all channels in a single platform.
Save time and effort with flexible article templates that automate recurring tasks and routines in the newsroom.
