Most free or affordable content management systems are built for general editorial workflows, with little thought given the specific needs of a newsroom or publisher. Superdesk Lite is different. Built by journalists, for journalists, and incorporating more than a decade of collaborative development, Superdesk Lite is a robust content management system trusted by some of the most respected editors and writers in the business. Whether your team publishes news for external audiences or content for internal consumption, Superdesk Lite is a highly-scalable open-source CMS that can adapt to fit the needs of your organisation. It offers customisable workflows, easy third-party integrations, automated content ingest features, and the ability to publish to a wide range of digital and print platforms – including your own WordPress-powered websites via the Superdesk WordPress plugin. Moreover, granular user access controls ensure that you are in control of your workflow, and only those with the right permissions can publish content. Enhance editorial efficiency and streamline content production with Superdesk Lite.

What our clients say
The Fourth Estate was seeking a solution to modernize and streamline news content management for our rapidly growing global journalism initiative. Superdesk was the ideal solution for our needs and it provides our journalists with the modern infrastructure that we will build on top of. Without Superdesk it would have been more expensive, time-consuming and significantly more painful to deploy the solution we needed.
Jeff Brown Founder and Executive Director, Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corporation
Without Superdesk and the other open-source solutions from Sourcefabric, a news organisation like ours would not be able to fulfill its mission and still remain independent.
