Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), a leading UK newspaper management company, has adopted Adobe® InDesign® CS2 and InCopy® CS2 as its standard publishing solution. The implementation, to be carried out through Adobe partner Atex, http://www.atex.com/ will provide ANL with cutting-edge tools to fine tune page layout workflow, making it easier, faster, and more fluid for designers to be creative and achieve higher productivity.
Adobe InDesign and InCopy, as part of Atex’s database managed editorial content solution, will initially work in conjunction with Lotus Notes text editor, already in use with several ANL titles and will be used to produce and manage ANL’s many publications including big names like the Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday, Evening Standard, Metro, LondonLite, as well as a number of online publications.
The switch from “ahem- another vendor” to a new cross-media solution will help ANL improve both content and delivery, streamlining design and editorial processes and improve the quality of all materials. Additionally, with the support for XML in InDesign, ANL will save time and money that was once spent developing the custom software needed for cross media publishing.
