SaxoTech shows its Web Publishing system, Publicus, designed for medium-size newspapers. The system, which has been available in Europe, is a dynamic database-driven system that supports multi-channel publishing (to browsers, Palm Pilots, phones, etc.) and has strong story indexing and categorization features. The idea is for newspapers to be able to put as much information as possible in front of the users, rather than forcing them to search for it.

The other main selling point of the system is its integration of various Web modules into one system, including good functionality for classifieds, E-commerce, content sales, community publishing, discussion, and polling functions. SaxoTechs uniting of all of these components will make it easier for small- to medium-size newspapers to compete on the Web with larger sites.

Publicus supports multimedia elements, using any ODBC-compliant database,
