Long-time client News UK has a need for speed. When they discovered the benefits of the new Gutenberg block editor in WordPress, they saw an opportunity to accelerate their content production.
An initial pilot program resulted in 60% improvement in speed to publish — so now they’re rolling out that pilot across global brands.
And because the Gutenberg roadmap includes continual product enhancements over the next several years, News UK knows they have a partner they can trust to keep them on the front lines of digital innovation.
With Gutenberg, we were able to publish a breaking news story in two minutes versus five minutes in Classic [WordPress]. The main reason for this is the reusable blocks which have been renamed ‘The Game Changer’.
