New Vuelio integration publishes press releases directly to Jadu websites

A new integration enables Vuelio, a platform used to create, schedule and send press releases to journalists, to simultaneously publish press releases on Jadu sites.

This saves considerable time by reducing the duplication of work for organisations publishing communications regularly.

Warwickshire County Council (WCC) publishes three to four new stories per day to keep journalists and citizens up to date with local news. Publishing in multiple places could take up to fifteen minutes each time, which added up over days and weeks is a considerable amount of time that could be better spent elsewhere. 

The Vuelio integration with the Jadu Content Management System (CMS) means Warwickshire County Council no longer needs to log into the Jadu CMS to publish news stories on their website, and then further publish on other news outlets. Vuelio makes publishing to multiple platforms quick and easy. The Council now only has to publish news articles once, from one centralised place!

Warwickshire County Council uses Jadu CMS to publish content to their website. Within the Jadu CMS is a news article section, an area purposely built for users to quickly and easily publish news stories to their websites.

Screenshot 2021-02-09 at 16.37.53The Council also uses Vuelio, a news distribution product, to distribute press releases from one centralised place. With the website being an important (if not the most important) place to publish news, WCC wanted to make their news publishing process more efficient. This is even more critical throughout the pandemic when citizens need access to the most up-to-date news in their area. News and information needs to be published through several channels to ensure maximum reach. The Council reached out to Jadu to discuss a possible custom integration between Vuelio and the Jadu CMS so that they could make their publishing process more efficient. 

There was no need to build a core integration. Instead, we have created a module that customers can purchase as an add on. The Jadu Creative team can then apply this module to your website. When Warwickshire County Council now publishes a news story within Vuelio it auto publishes the news to the Council website and pushes it live, cutting out the need to log into the Jadu CMS at all to publish the article. This module is reusable and can be used by other Jadu customers who have a Vuelio account.

Jadu Library assets used the most during 2020

Our customers in Local Government responded quickly to the Global Coronavirus crisis, launching new services at speed that met the immediate needs of communities. Councils suddenly found themselves having to coordinate delivery of business grants, spinning up services around medicine and food delivery, working with community volunteer groups, processing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) donations and a lot more. Not only did they face the challenge of launching new services, they had a long list of other challenges to overcome, including; moving their workforce to remote working, shifting existing services online, increasing the frequency of communications to the public and ensuring that all citizens could access key services. We wanted to remind you that the Jadu Library is there to help. We’ve received feedback from some of our customers who have said that being able to utilise the Jadu Library has been particularly useful during the busy and unprecedented year. We’ve listed some of our top viewed and downloaded assets from 2020.
