Comfortable CMS systems for managing content in iLottery platforms are laying the foundation for easily and promptly reacting on changes and news in the lottery business.
Using such a CMS system, the content can be created or adapted by editorial staff of the lottery itself without the need of support from agencies or having to make a new software installation. TQG has developed standard graphical user interfaces which can be fully configured via a license-free CMS system and can even be completely new created by the customer.
Components for text entry provide a high comfort when entering text, as one is used to from other standard tools, such as Microsoft Word®.
Web pages and component templates (“widgets”) are all matched with the requirements of the lottery and ensure that individual content pages can be assembled according to a modular system. The overall structure is maintained and the new pages fit seamlessly into the overall concept. This simplifies the work of the content editors enormously. The CMS used by the TQG is consistently browser-based. Thus, no separate installation of software for the editors is needed. The content pages can be created via "drag and drop", edited with a WYSIWYG editor and be published directly or on a specified schedule. Moreover, special approval workflows can be used to support larger editorial teams.
By using the CMS, the lottery is nearly completely independent from the manufacturer regarding layout and content of the web site. This allows the lottery a maximum of flexibility with respect to content and time.
