Dill said the fact that the pub­lisher didn't have to in­vest in a new server and that the sys­tem runs on just one was a ma­jor sav­ings a big con­trib­u­tor to the de­ci­sion in fa­vor of NewsWay.

Sin­gle-view dash­board

The NewsWayX dash­board is de­signed to save time for print plant man­agers while al­low­ing them to see the sta­tus of the en­tire pro­duc­tion cy­cle in a sin­gle view.

Green­sheet cur­rently pub­lishes 20 editions for the Hous­ton/Dal­las mar­ket as well as 20 other com­mer­cial print pa­pers, which are mostly week­lies and a few monthly pub­li­ca­tions.

"Al­to­gether we have about 40 pubs be­ing pro­duced on this," Dill said. "They all look alike but the are branded per mar­ket."

Dill said his team ap­pre­ci­ates that ease of use and be­ing able to show some­one how to cre­ate a pub­li­ca­tion and sub­mit files in un­der an hour. Green­sheet pro­duces its plates on two Agfa Ad­van­tage N-DL vi­o­let plate­set­ters with two in­line pro­ces­sors. Plates feed into a Nela ben­der.

The time sav­ings and ease of use have proven hugely ben­e­fi­cial for the pub­lisher and added hours back to the pro­duc­tion win­dow.

"There is no down­time — it's al­ways up and run­ning," Dill said. "You just log right in and it works."
