Chicago Tribune Goes Live with SAXOTECH Circulation Software



Tampa, Fla. - July 11, 2011 - SAXOTECH, a leader in content management, circulation and advertising solutions, announced today that the Chicago Tribune, one of the top 10 largest newspapers in the Unites States, has successfully installed its Circulation and WebCirc solutions. The enterprise circulation system will manage and facilitate all circulation activities for the newspaper, as well as its partners, subscribers and distributors.

Enterprise-level circulation technology will provide the Chicago Tribune with greater flexibility and return on investment when managing its large copy distributions. Real-time access to data and business logic specifically built for subscribers, carriers, dealers and managers will allow for lucrative new strategies and partnerships both in print and online. Because the architecture of the system is designed to scale to the needs of the organization, the Chicago Tribune was able to implement the new circulation system in record time.

“The features and functionality of our system will give the Chicago Tribune greater operational efficiencies and insight in to every aspect of their circulation activities,” said Mark Ganslaw, vice president of circulation, SAXOTECH. “It is a scalable enterprise solution that gives media companies such as the Chicago Tribune the ability to provide a consistent and compelling product that fits the demands of a busy and diverse news cycle.”

The Chicago Tribune go-live joins The Los Angeles Times implementation, which went live in June 2010.
