Aalborg, June 06, 1999 - produces its first newspaper on SAXoPRESS Publishing System
On Thursday the 10 June 1999 Kristianstadsbladet produced the first newspaper on their recently implemented editorial SAXoPRESS Publishing System with MacOS workstations and an Oracle® SQL database.
Consequently, Kristianstadsbladet became the first of the 4 Swedish newspapers, that have bought SAXoPRESS so far, to take SAXoPRESS in production in the daily operations.
A happy editor, Benny Backman, with the first edition of Kristian-stadsbladet produced with SAXoPRESS

Mix of layout driven and content driven production
At Kristianstadsbladet, with 54 users and a daily circulation of 30,500, they have decided to work both traditionally (content driven) and layout driven in the newsroom. This opportunity for flexibility in work method is just one of the many advantages SAXoPRESS includes. By implementing SAXoPRESS, Kristianstadsbladet has thus opened the doors for a new and more effective way of working.
SAXoPRESS 100% integration
Today, Kristianstadsbladet writes and edits the entire newspaper with SAXoPRESS Publishing System including automatic picture processing, and they have just started implementing the integrated archive solution SAXoBRS for both text, images and pages.
