Avisa Nordland, Rana Blad, Helgeland Arbeiderblad sign contracts for SAXoPRESS Publishing System
SAXOTECH, the leading supplier of editorial solutions in Scandinavia, has signed an agreement with three more newspapers in the Norwegian A-Pressen media group to deliver a complete print publishing solution.

These contracts have been signed as a result of the recently signed framework agreement with A-Pressen, which, in the last four months, has resulted in six new SAXoPRESS (Ed. note - currently called SAXOTECH Editorial) installations in Norway.

"Our choice of SAXoPRESS is based on A-Pressen's decision on running a common system in the newspaper group, and we are absolutely confident that the implementation of SAXoPRESS will make the editorial production processes effective," said Kjell Hugvik, News Editor of Avisa Nordland. "We are working on implementing layout-driven production, and in that work SAXOTECH's planning and layout tools will be essential."

"We are very pleased that Avisa Nordland, Rana Blad and Helgelands Arbeiderblad have selected SAXoPRESS as their editorial production system," said Baard Mo, Norwegian market manager for SAXOTECH.

The SAXoPRESS Publishing System is a complete, platform independent newspaper production system with tools for optimizing the editorial workflow from story idea to finished print pages.
