Presteligence and Software Consulting Services are getting closer with a first collaborative joint venture.
Integration of SCS's Scoop newsroom system with Presteligence's My News 360 web content management system is the first project, aimed at digital delivery to web and apps.
The two systems 'talk' to each other in real time enabling a story's edits, assets, and tags to be retrieved from either system, eliminating many of the manual tasks faced when pushing stories out to web.
Both digital-first and print-first models are supported.
As the collaboration proceeds, the companies say they 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 focus is in advertising and newsroom systems - especially advertising design, production and pagination - with SCS systems used to make print pages using AI technology.
Presteligence's My News 360 delivers newspaper content digitally via responsive websites, mobile apps and e-editions with built-in notification platform for breaking news alerts and daily delivery. Other Presteligence tools manage print workflow, including page pairing, imposition, ink optimization and preflighting.
Owners Bob Behringer and Martha and Richard Cichelli have built a good-standing reputation in the industry as well as mutual respect for each other as they crossed paths throughout their careers.
