Four of Nine Regional Papers use Neo by Anygraaf– Over 500,000 readers reached with Neo-produced publications

Finnish newspapers Karjalainen, Keskisuomalainen, Savon Sanomat and Etelä-Suomen Sanomat have all implemented Anygraaf’s Neo publishing system within the past year. The final newspaper to begin publishing using Neo was Savon Sanomat; its first Neo-produced edition was the January 18, 2012 issue.

One of the key reasons behind the software installation at all four publications was to enhance the cooperation and collaboration between the so-called “Nelikko” publications. Chief Editor of Karjalainen, Pasi Koivumaa, says that “cooperation between Nelikko tightens with the new publishing system and appearance. Alterations to pages will now be easier than ever before.” Koivumaa continues, “Neo combines the design and publishing systems which had previously been separate. This brings together the editing and design processes, which is an excellent thing.”

Neo

The Neo publishing system is a framework for the control and management of the editorial enterprise. Content for all channels can be produced within the same editor, allowing users to easily combine material into packages for distribution to multiple platforms. “The multichanneling capabilites within Neo provide a great opportunity, as long as we make the most of it. Since we produce content for multiple channels all the time, distribution should be as easy and effortless as possible.” states Koivumaa.

All of the editorial information and stages have been combined in a single console within Neo; however, the program looks different for each user depending upon his or her role. Different stages require different views and functions and now they can all be provided by a single system. One user can have several roles (i.e. editor, editorial assistant, etc.) as well as a desktop environment associated with each role.

Content planning can begin long before writing and photography begin as all pertinent information can be entered into Neo, thus providing ample background information for the author. Editorial staff can easily view and control how each issue is progressing, thereby keeping the publication on time and within budget. Resource allocation and scheduling are included in the basic Neo package. Long-term planning as well as project assignment are handled within Neo, adding another level of information available within the system for each project.

Combining workflows, training, redesign and initialization of the system at four publications required a huge effort by everyone involved. “The initialization process proceeded without any major problems. Each time a system is changed, there are always small issues, but anything like that was very minor and quickly corrected” says Koivumaa.
