Canarias7’s renewal takes place on its 35th anniversary via an attractive responsive web supported by Protecmedia’s ITER Web CMS

Information about the seven islands, without overlooking the main subjects of general interest, and increased reader participation: the strong points in the editorial line of this prestigious Canary Island publication.

“CANARIAS7’s digital edition today shows off a new design, featuring changes that are much more than skin deep. Coinciding with the start of the celebration of 35 years of the newspaper being published – the first issue went on sale on 2 October 1982- the newspaper’s web is being completely revolutionised...

But –which was one of the first five publications in Spain to be available online – continues to be faithful to its principles: a web that supplements the print edition and the C7 magazine and which focuses on the news in the Canary Islands, without failing to cover the main national and international events, increasingly important in a globalised world like the one that we now live in.”

This is how the prestigious Canary Island newspaper presents its new web to its readers, typified by an attractive design, greater quality and organisation of the information and significant weight given to graphic and video contents. The project has been carried out in close cooperation with Inforcasa Digital –a company in which Canarias7 has a stake- and Protecmedia, which has provided the technology and also worked as consultant, contributing its experience in digital platforms.

It should be noted that Canarias7 is the only newspaper that at present offers specific information about the seven islands that make up the Canary Island archipelago, as is reflected by the section in its navigation menu called 7 islands.

Francisco Suárez, Director: “We have made a qualitative leap forward, but we continue to be faithful to our original principles: a newspaper that is updated constantly, whose news focus is information on the Canary Islands and which takes into account its readers’ opinions.”

Canarias7 wants to continue involving in its project those who made it possible for the newspaper to exist in the first place. As its Director, Francisco Suárez, states, “readers will find a web that is easy to read, one that we wish to continue building not only in line with future technological advances, but also the suggestions of advertisers, who are those that helped us to get off the ground 35 years ago. Together with them, we want to continue moving forward in this media and any others that may arise in the future.”

Gonzalo H. Martel, Area Head, explains that with the new technological solution provided by ITER Web, “the work of journalists will be received much more quickly and it will also allow a closer relationship with readers.”

For the Manager of Inforcasa Digital, Esther P. Verdú, this renewal shows once more that “Canarias7 is always innovating, so that it can offer its readers the best news coverage.” As she puts it, “With the new web, our aim is to reach readers wherever they may be, through their handheld devices, tablets, social networks... We want the information on the Canary Islands to always be available on any device.”
