Texas shopper taps NewsWay
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.
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."
