Hessenschau Goes Mobile with Sophora CMS

At any time, at any place: With Sophora hessenschau.de enables mobile access to latest regional news from Hessen.

With its motto „Hessen continues watching“ the regional news portal “hr-online” of Hessischer Rundfunk was successfully relaunched on July 21, 2015 under its new name “hessenschau”. The new website hessenschau.de presents itself in responsive design and is designed for the use of all mobile devices. The optimization ensures an enhanced user-friendly handling in using mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones or pc by visiting the web portal.

By implementing the content management system Sophora hessenschau.de comes along with a responsive design as well as an optimized search, related to certain topics. Visitors of the news portal are guided to regional and latest news about Hesse through an improved side structure and new layout.

Individual topics are now well-structured and divided into the following sections: politics, society, economy, culture, sports, panorama and leisure. Additionally, latest news about individual regions of Hesse can be retrieved if desired. Regional information on traffic and weather can be found on the portal as well as worth knowing information about the news magazine “Hessenschau” shown on television. The newscast, as the most powerful HR brand, is responsible for the new name of the online portal.

The cooperation between Hessischer Rundfunk and subshell has been already proven successfully in further projects, such as the realization of “hr-inline”, the intranet of Hessischer Rundfunk. Including a modern layout and an enhanced site structure hessenschau.de fulfils all necessary technological standards for a today’s modern website.
