Integrate with eGo CMS

eGo is a content management system (CMS) that allows you to build and manage websites without any technical know-how. The eGo CMS is specialized in creating websites for cities, municipalities and local governments in Belgium. Would you like to use your Bynder image assets in eGo CMS? Use Bynder as your single source of truth and save yourself the time of uploading your image assets twice by integrating eGo CMS with Bynder.

The integration makes use of the Compact View and allows you to directly add your Bynder image assets including their public derivatives to your eGo content. The integration supports Digital Asset Transformations (DAT) and makes use of the CDN URLs. The use of CDN URLs ensures that the latest version of the image assets is always available in your eGo content.
