NewsWayX – Next Generation Newspaper and Magazine Production Workflow

 

NewsWayX, the new generation Newspaper and Magazine Production Workflow system, controls and manages your production workflow from a variety of front-end systems through to output. Because it uses a web browser, NewsWayX will monitor production status from origination to print sites, regardless of their location.

NewsWayX Dashboard

The brand new Dashboard is designed to save valuable time for the print plant managers and operatives, allowing them to see the status of their entire production with a single glance. 

NewsWayX Dashboard will give a snapshot of the status of all publications and editions that are being currently produced.  You can see with a single glance the number of pages, plates and formes that have been produced and the number left that still needs processing.  Saving valuable time in taking action to ensure that production takes place in a timely manner.

Not only that but by assigning deadlines to editions you will be alerted to any delays and glitches in the production process.

The NewsWayX solution is packaged as a core product with multiple add-on modules.

  • The building-block approach permits various combinations of tools and services to be configured in order to address specific customer requirements.
