NORTH CANTON OH (August 9 2012) –Gannett selected Presteligence’s NewsXtreme Production Workflow Software for their corporate-wide prepress workflow solution as they consolidate their prepress operations. The project includes deployment of NewsXtreme into 41 print sites and USA Today and the transmission to non-Gannett print sites.

Gannett will host three prepress operation centers in Des Moines IA Indianapolis IN and Phoenix AZ where NewsXtreme Enterprise will manage their dailies USA Today weeklies and all commercial jobs that are printed or distributed through their print sites.

NewsXtreme Enterprise will integrate with CCI SCS Layout 8000 and DPS among others in this innovative approach to production. Super users at the three hubs will proof the pages using its web interface. This will allow for consistent production and control as the approved pages are transferred to the appropriate print sites.

The NewsXtreme software installed at each print site will then manage the rest of the production functions such as fan out page pairing creep adjustment plate templates press proofs and plate approval. Each site will be communicating its status to the operation centers.

NewsXtreme’s open interface rules based workflow and future upgrade path were among the reasons Presteligence was selected.

Pre-planning meetings and installations are already underway for the fast-paced deployment schedule. Doug Arnold Operations Manager/Workflow and Output will be managing the rollout for GPS.
