Ylä-Sa­takun­ta is al­ready us­ing Any­graaf’s Neo con­tent man­age­ment sys­tem, AProf­it me­dia ad­ver­tis­ing man­age­ment sys­tem, CProf­it dig­i­tal and print or­der man­age­ment sys­tem and NeoDi­rect on­line pub­lish­ing plat­form. With NeoDi­rect, Ylä-Sa­takun­ta has de­vel­oped their on­line pres­ence to in­clude an en­rich­able ePa­per that al­so meets the Eu­ro­pean Union’s ac­ces­si­bil­i­ty re­quire­ments with au­to­mat­ic ma­chine read­ing of ar­ti­cles.

“Neo’s eNeo brows­er-based user in­ter­face makes the work of the re­porters eas­i­er, more flex­i­ble and from re­mote lo­ca­tions. It en­ables dig­i­tal pub­lish­ing to hap­pen not on­ly in re­al time but al­so in a tar­get­ed man­ner that reach­es iden­ti­fied au­di­ences. Our op­er­a­tion con­tin­ues to strength­en our dig­i­tal first strat­e­gy,” says Juk­ka Huikko, CEO of Ylä-Sa­takun­nan Sanomale­hti Oy and ed­i­tor-in-chief of the lo­cal news­pa­per Ylä-Sa­takun­ta.

Be­gin­ning in 2020, Ylä-Sa­takun­ta im­ple­ment­ed a ma­jor dig­i­tal re­form through­out its op­er­a­tions. The de­vel­op­ment work has con­tin­ued steadi­ly since that time. The in­no­va­tions have al­so tak­en the pos­si­ble needs of a fu­ture mul­ti-pa­per en­vi­ron­ment in­to con­sid­er­a­tion.

“Any­graaf’s co­op­er­a­tion in es­tab­lish­ing and im­ple­ment­ing new de­vel­op­ment phas­es that sup­port­ed our ob­jec­tives con­vinced us,” says Huikko.

“To­geth­er with an in­no­v­a­tive and fu­ture-ori­ent­ed cus­tomer like Ylä-Sa­takun­ta, we have been able to build so­lu­tions that will last far in­to the fu­ture and en­able a con­tin­u­ous de­vel­op­ment mod­el based on the cus­tomer needs. We are look­ing for­ward to what the peo­ple of Ylä-Sa­takun­ta will come up with next,” says Janne Ahramo from Any­graaf.
