Leveraging technology for group publishing, The McClatchy Co. has signed a contract with Saxotech in Tampa, Fla., to deploy a Central Channel Agnostic Content management and production system to serve 265 users at The Bradenton (Fla.) Herald, The Macon (Ga.) Telegraph, Columbus (Ga.) Ledger-Enquirer, and The Sun-Herald, Biloxi, Miss.

Implementation starts immediately, with an expected go-live late this year.

The shift from separate editorial systems to a single, distributed architecture will provide the sites with a common technology platform on which they may still independently plan, create edit and publish content for distinct print products. Content from the centralized Mediaware Center deployment — to be based in Charlotte, N.C. — will flow to McClatchy Interactive-managed digital media properties.

“Throughout the entire preparation process the Saxotech team has shown us their commitment to aiding our company in the development of a new approach to newspaper publishing,” Corporate IT Director Terry Geiger said in a statement.

The solution will have enhanced workflows for channel-neutral content production and page production. The Saxotech Mediaware Center will enable content sharing possibilities among papers. Adobe InCopy and InDesign CS3 will be deployed as part of this solution.
