AnyFirst: Creating content from anywhere

Creating and updating content from any platform involved in your editorial system is an advantage that gives you flexibility and speed.


Your system becomes adaptable to change, technical limitations are reduced, and content becomes the protagonist in the workflow. In addition to saving you time by being able to have your content published simultaneously in different output channels.

The primary concept of BrixWire is to provide a platform for various input and output plugins. By this, any content source can be attached to our news hub for input and output.

If you take this design principle and add the ability, to perform auto publishes, you end up in a scenario that it is possible to start writing on any of the attached systems. The result will be updated automatically on all defined outputs.

For example: if you start writing an article on WordPress you can continue updating the article with WoodWing Studio or the other way round.
