SCS and Presteligence announce joint venture
Presteligence and Software Consulting Services, LLC, have announced a collaborative venture.
The first joint project is the integration between SCS's Scoop newsroom system with Presteligence's My News 360 web content management system for digital delivery to web and apps. The two systems seamlessly "talk" to each other in real time so a story's edits, assets and tags can be retrieved from any system at any time. This integration eliminates many of the manual tasks newspapers are facing when pushing stories out to web, particularly when their editorial system and website don't have the means to interact with each other. Both digital-first and print-first models are supported.
As the collaboration proceeds, the companies will work together with new and existing customers to provide full-service solutions for ad production, prepress and digital delivery. The direct communication between SCS and Presteligence will eliminate the need for a newspaper to be the middle-man between multiple vendors.
SCS's strengths are in advertising and newsroom systems, with particular expertise in advertising design, production and pagination. For print production this means SCS systems are used to make page images. SCS's design and pagination technologies are built using advanced labor-saving artificial intelligence technology.
Presteligence's My News 360 digitally delivers newspaper content via a responsive website, mobile apps and e-edition with a built-in notification platform for breaking news alerts and daily delivery. Other Presteligence tools manage the workflow of images to the press. The company's expertise is in page pairing, imposition, ink optimization, preflighting, ripping, etc.
