MediaCorp Banks on ppi Media for Newspaper Production

Since September 2011, MediaCorp, a leading multi-media publisher in Singapore, has planned and produced its daily newspaper TODAY with software solutions by ppi Media. After installing PlanPag for newspaper production planning, ppi Media, a subsidiary of manroland, has also integrated the Atex Prestige editorial system and SAP’s IS-M/AM ad management system in the workflow.

MediaCorp has completed its publishing system integration. The new workflow for TODAY started with the implementation of SAP’s IS-M/AM system and an update of the Prestige editorial system. Both are now fully integrated. With PlanPag as its central planning system, MediaCorp creates the page plans for Singapore’s second largest daily newspaper and then forwards them to the editorial system using standardized interfaces.

At MediaCorp, IS-M/AM is integrated in finance and controlling modules from the SAP ERP family. ppi Media provides extensive know-how on SAP IS-M/AM from over 50 reference installations at news publishers worldwide. Atex Prestige is integrated based on XML standards. ppi Media’s experience covers more than 100 installations with various editorial systems at newspapers worldwide.
