Nor­way’s Ame­dia turns to MWM’s cloud-based tool

Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Industry Installs & Upgrades -

Ame­dia Trykk, Nor­way’s largest pub­lisher of lo­cal me­dia ti­tles, is us­ing MWM’s cloud­based Pro­duc­tion Plan­ning (PPC) tool to run six print­ing plants and co­or­di­nate 65 ti­tles. The work at Ame­dia has been in­volved in de­vel­op­ing the new cloud-based sys­tem for Stock­holm-based MWM.

PPC al­lows Ame­dia Trykk to plan ti­tles, print jobs and de­liv­er­ies. Ame­dia can book in­serts di­rectly onto ti­tles. Most of Ame­dia’s in­serts are im­ported to the sys­tem from the Nor­we­gian na­tional in­sert book­ing sys­tem.

The news­pa­pers use a web por­tal to en­ter in­for­ma­tion into the sys­tem re­gard­ing cir­cu­la­tion and num­ber of pages. In Copy­Track, Ame­dia mon­i­tors the pro­duc­tion in real time and col­lects pro­duc­tion data for anal­y­sis.

“We now have, in ev­ery sin­gle or­der, de­tailed in­for­ma­tion on the cus­tomer, prod­uct name, is­sues, num­ber of pages, pa­per grade, cir­cu­la­tions, etc. Other valu­able in­for­ma­tion is that we eas­ily get a clear view of cov­er­age and ca­pac­ity uti­liza­tion,” says Ketil Haug­land, CTO of Ame­dia print and dis­tri­bu­tion.
