Midwest-based Community Newspaper Group implements Layout-8000 in the cloud from SCS


Community Newspaper Group is the latest newspaper group to select Layout-8000 from SCS. Headquartered in Frankfort, Illinois, the company is running Layout-8000 in the cloud to place ads and distribute dummies for all of its publications, including the Finger Lakes Times and the Olean Times Herald in New York and the Courier Express and Bradford Era in Pennsylvania.

“After a careful review of our needs we found that Layout-8000 matched up very well,” according to Pat Patterson, executive vice president and group publisher. “As we have rolled out the product across our locations, we have been very happy.”

“Layout-8000 provides CMG with a standardized ad dummying platform for its network of daily and weekly newspapers,” sales Phil Curtolo, director of sales at SCS. “There are considerable savings to be had when the same platform can be used across a company, as we’ve seen with groups like Lee Enterprises and Gannett.”
