Integrate existing feeds and sources
As our platform is built around the idea of curation, tchop seamlessly integrates with existing systems. Your team can continue working with the existing tools without evening touching the tchop CMS in their daily routine. Or editors can use the tchop CMS to easily curate content on top or add app specific features like push notifications.
tchop™ can automatically parse content feeds on basis of a variety of standard integrations:
- RSS feeds
- Scraping of new links from a website (including your own)
- Social Media content from twitter, facebook or instagram
- Youtube videos
Each channel is independent in terms of content structure and has its own editorial dashboard. That means each sales team or department can easily curate, edit and distribute content for even small regional teams. In its own language. And with its own relevant sales drivers.
Editorial meets Social Media
tchop™ provides additional feateres, that turn your news app into a mobile community that enables meaningful conversations with or within your community of readers and subscribers. You can combine the power of a social network with the unique content and context of an editorial product in a flexible, dynamic way. The good thing: the editorial team always controls how far those social features go.
Your tchop™ app makes it easy to contribute, discuss or comment content, while you always control how this works through a smart roles and permission schemes. Editors can get in touch with readers on the same platform and strengthen the long term user retention. With every chat message or like on a comment users get a push notification from your app - like on WhatsApp! A truly personalised news experience that strengthens your brand!
