The Union Leader will now have the production tools needed to optimize resources to guarantee that none of its content producers will be working on the same story at the same time. Utilizing the advanced planning and workflow features of the SAXOTECH Mediaware Center, the Union Leader can send a single reporter to an event. The SAXOTECH platform enables a reporter, using a laptop to have a story and photos in the system before the event is over. Other journalists will be able to follow the development of the story, retrieve it from the database and add to it from another angle. Increased print and Web collaboration will greatly improve operational efficiencies and allow for up-to-the-minute Web publishing, ideal for breaking news stories and delivering critical information.
