All of the employees utilize the same SAXoPRESS system, which will be installed at the offices of The Washington Times, in Washington, D.C. Most of the page production and design takes place in the D.C. and Miami offices. All of the users working in the offices outside of Washington, D.C., access the system remotely.
The 39-seat system has already been implemented and all 17 publications are live on the system.
The contract includes the SAXoPRESS Base System, as well as the following add-ons:
- SAXoBRS Archive will allow Tiempos Del Mundo to archive all of their published text, images and pages in one central, indexed repository
- Automatic Image Processing will automate the process of preparing images for print and Web output
- E-mail Receiver automates the process of capturing and importing information sent to specified email addresses
