"Ellington will be a content management system that helps our process, not a CMS that gets in our way. That will be a welcome move for all of our sites." — Doug Campbell Managing Editor, News | Interactive Editor Eagle Newspapers
"We're very excited to work with Denton Publications, News Market Press, and Community Media Group in launching their websites on Ellington," said Dan Cox, President of Mediaphormedia, developers of Ellington CMS and Ellington Marketplace. "We anticipate seeing a tremendous increase in community engagement over the next year, and are confident the results will be a brilliant example to other community newspapers on what can be done with the right leadership, team, tools, and content."
"I applaud both the people at Ellington and our dedicated employees who put in a huge effort to get this rolling under a tight deadline," said David Tyler, publisher of Eagle Newspapers. "In the few days since launch, user feedback has been very positive regarding the improvements to content, design and functionality. We're very pleased."
Campbell stated, "We are extremely impressed with how powerful a system Ellington can be. We set ambitious goals, and the Ellington team helped us meet them in a very short time frame. Now that we’re going live, I’m excited to see how our editors will use all the tools at their disposal to deliver great content to our readers."
“This was a monumental change and not something we really wanted to jump into at this time. But between our internal “Make it Happen Team” of John McIntyre, Doug Campbell, DJ Alexander and Taylor Kimbrell, working closely with our editorial staffs and the attentive folks at Mediaphormedia /Ellington CMS they powered through and made us all proud. This new site will serve as our catapult to the future, opening up many new opportunities to serve our readers and advertisers alike,” noted Denton Publisher, Daniel Alexander.
“This has been a huge undertaking for our community newspapers and Ellington CMS," explained New Market Press Publisher, Ed Coats. "Both of our professional staffs should be commended for the tireless work they put forth in bringing this new dimension to our publishing business. Already within days of the launch positive feedback has been pouring in.”
