After going live with SCS/ClassPag at the beginning of the summer, Newsday Media Group has now gone live with SCS/Track, according to SCS (Software Consulting Services).

Newsday Media Group is the publisher of Long Island daily Newsday as well as the 79-edition Hometown Shopper weekly.

SCS/Track replaces several systems that had previously been tightly integrated and customized by Newsday’s staff. The workflow was heavily paper-based and the company was looking for a more standard solution that required less day-to-day attention from the IT department, SCS says.

“The system is up, stable and all production work is now running through SCS/Track,” says Greg McDonald, Newsday’s director of editorial systems and content delivery.

SCS, which offers a line of publishing-related applications including Layout-8000, is privately held by Richard and Martha Cichelli.
