Collaborative Print Media Publishing with Automated Workflow Print E-mail
First and second generation electronic pagination systems began to introduce one-way integration of content into composition interfaces. While speeding one part of production, these loose integrations mean that once changes are made to stories within layout, sharing or reusing that content on the Web is not possible. Couple limitations like this with proprietary print publishing systems or systems that use source code revisions of popular brand layout systems, and publishers are faced with complicated issues that make it hard to meet the challenges of multi-channel publishing.

The SAXOTECH Editorial system provides the same collaborative workflow common throughout the entire system, making your whole news organization more effective and productive right up to the final deadline.

By using plug-ins and extensions to provide newsroom-specific functionality to standard Adobe InDesign® or Quark XPress® applications, you get to use 100 percentof the out-of-the-box functionality of the latest releases of these products and are ensured quick upgrades to major releases.

The result is a collaborative, innovative work environment where everyone has real-time visibility to the latest version of every page and its elements.

  • ADOBE OR QUARK INTEGRATION. Our tight integration means that users will get all the features and functionality of Adobe or Quark, enhanced by news organization-specific tools.
