BLOX Total CMS: For the newsroom of today and beyond

BLOX Total CMS: The digital publishing platform for the modern newsroom.

With BLOX Total CMS, "produce once, publish everywhere" is more than just a catchphrase. Reach your audience across the entire print and digital spectrum—print, web, mobile, social media, and Live e-Editions. You can even push content to Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), Apple News, and Facebook Instant Articles.

Flexible workflows

BLOX Total CMS can be setup to support almost any workflow model—whether it's digital-first, print-first, or a hybrid.

Best-in-class tools

BLOX Total CMS fully integrates with Adobe InDesign for print pagination and BLOX CMS for web, mobile, social media, and distributed platform publishing. Both are widely used, giving you more available talent and lower training costs.

Centralized layout and pagination

One BLOX Total CMS setup can support many geographically dispersed publications, allowing group publishers to create centralized production centers—saving money and boosting efficiency.

Built-in Page Tracker gives editors, writers, and designers an up-to-date view of page production—without hard copies.

Easier workflow tracking

Our built-in Page Tracker gives editors, writers, and designers an up-to-date view of page production—without hard copies. View the rendered page right in your browser, or switch to the wireframe view to see your article layouts. Meet your deadlines with color-coded workflow indicators that make it easy to see what’s done, and what still needs doing.
