At the America’s Newspapers Conference (Oct. 17 to 19 at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs) CherryRoad Media signed contracts with SCS to implement the Community Advertising System and Community Publishing System to standardize the advertising, production and editorial workflows across its 27 community newspapers, says a news release from SCS.

“SCS is proud to work with Jeremy (CEO Jeremy Gulban) and his team at CherryRoad as the company embarks on its journey to give back to its communities with strong, local journalism,” says Phil Curtolo, director of sales at SCS.

SCS offers a line of publishing-related applications, including Layout-8000. SCS is privately held by Kurt Jackson.
