The Detroit Regional News Hub is a site dedicated to providing a one-stop location for information, stories, events, and news about the Detroit region. Because of the need for the site to be a resource with current information, the team of the Detroit Hub needed to be able to manage their site and update it as new information and stories came out about Detroit.
In addtion to giving them the ability to manage every part of their site, from text to flash images, Backstage also gave The Detroit News Regional News Hub team the capabilities to:
- add new pages, articles, stories, and links
- add and manage RSS feeds (which sites to pull from, how many articles, what source order, what pages the feeds should appear on)
- flexible calendar feature with ability for approved partners to post new events through the user management feature
- automatically add newsletter subscribers to the e-mail marketing system located within Backstage
