News publishing is not about the files; it’s about ideas and how ideas come together in a collaborative environment to get the highest rate of return on all available resources.

As demand grows for editorial content providers to maintain digital channels with breaking news around the clock while producing traditional news products, media companies are facing new challenges. With SAXOTECH’s advanced planning system, you can realize greater productivity from your people, increasing quality and content output to both print and online channels.

Regardless of where you are, who you are in your organization or your community, or when in any given news cycle that you have a need to collaborate, SAXOTECH’s planning capacity provides a single view of your content and its status down to the finest detail.
