Aschendorff Druckzentrum

Detlef Wiedenhöft, Production Coordination Aschendorff Druckzentrum GmbH & Co. KG

Cellesche Zeitung uses Content-X by ppi Media

Cellesche Zeitung

“Content-X is in a class of its own. This editorial solution is self-explanatory and easy to use. The innovative concept, the combination of InDesign and the Content Manage­ment System allow independent and individual newspaper production. Supported by an excellent team in Celle, ppi Media, Digital Collections and Desatec experienced a go-live without any hitches.”

Volker Franke, vice editor-in-chief and managing director at Cellesche Zeitung

impulse uses Content-X

Impulse

“Introducing a new editorial system during a running magazine production is very demanding. I’m glad we succeeded, even if not absolutely everything went according to plan due to the extremely tight schedule. If, in the case of impulse, you don’t just publish a print
magazine, but also have digital plans, it’s important to use a media-independent system right from the start.”

Nikolaus Förster, CEO of impulse

mediaprint infoverlag

“We have screened the market and discovered a number of powerful solutions. With Content-X, we are planning to use standard software which not only maps our workflow, but further optimizes and fully digitalizes it in a number of important points. In the future, Content-X will also provide digital output channels at mediaprint infoverlag with content at the press of a button.”

Markus Trost, managing director of mediaprint group GmbH

Nordkurier uses Content-X by ppi Media

Nordkurier

"I am very satisfied with Content-X. We at Nordkurier find the system very easy to operate, easy to understand, fast and efficient. Although the effort it took to set up the program was high, it was still much less than for the previous system. Since InDesign is a standard program that many employees know and can operate, it is possible to split the set-up process between several people."

Marica Verjaal, Head of Media Services, Kurierverlags GmbH & Co. KG

Saarbrücker Newspaper Group uses InkReduction by ppi Media

Saarbrücker Zeitung

"The excellent printing results we have achieved with a maximum ink application of 128% on dark and shadow areas and, as a result, the greatly reduced problems with set-off, were decisive. The high degree of integration in ppi Media's existing workflow was a powerful argument in favor of ppi InkReduction."

Gerhard Merker, Production Management Saarbrücker Newspaper Group

 

Südkurier uses AdX by ppi Media

SÜDKURIER Medienhaus

“Performing the central booking processes with AdX has produced very positive results within a very short period of time. It only takes 10 minutes to complete a booking, i.e. enter and test for a banner in wallpaper format. This used to take half an hour longer. In the months following the installation of AdX, the workflow processes were optimized together with specialists from ppi Media. The close integration with SAP IS-M/AM ensures efficient handling of orders and provides data for reporting,” says Dirk Frädrich.

Vaihinger Kreiszeitung

“We're very satisfied with the new workflow. Why? Just look at the low number of make-goods for ads. This figure has been significantly reduced, because AdMan will not accept mistakes. There was a much higher rate of errors in the old system, due to incorrect colors, size specifications etc.”

Michael Kütterer, Newspaper Production Manager at the Vaihinger Kreiszeitung
