Independent publisher to implement Knowledge editorial system

Thelma HendersonAn independent publisher is set to implement new editorial and advertising systems across its 15 newspaper titles.

Scottish Provincial Press has announced it has signed a contract for Knowledge Prospect, Knowledge Publish and a light version of Knowledge Pulse.

The Knowledge system is already used by other regional publishers including Newsquest and the Midland News Association.

SPP publishes titles across the North and North-East of Scotland.

Managing director Thelma Henderson, pictured, said: “We wanted to work with a supplier who fully understood our requirements and offered a partnership style relationship that would benefit us now and in the future.

“The Knowledge range of solutions look set to enhance our workflow and deliver the business efficiencies we are looking for.”

It is expected that SPP will go live with Knowledge Publish in October and Knowledge Prospect in February 2019.

Phil Walker, MD of Knowledge developer PCS, said: “It is a great accolade that Scottish Provincial Press have chosen the Knowledge portfolio of products to power their editorial and advertising workflow.

“To secure another new customer for our ground-breaking advertising platform Knowledge Prospect is fantastic and we expect there to be collaboration with other customers.”

PCS is part of the Claverley Group of companies which also owns MNA Media, publisher of the Express & Star and Shropshire Star, and the Guiton Group, which owns the Jersey Evening Post and Guernsey Press.
