SCS onboards Pittsburgh Post-Gazette with proven efficiencies

Article ID:


Nazareth, PA (September 13, 2018) – The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the dominant news source in Western Pennsylvania, has gone live with Layout-8000™ and SCS/ClassPag™. The best of breed systems from SCS integrate with the Post-Gazette’s Lineup Adpoint ad management software for the purpose of display ad dummying and classified pagination.

“SCS was easy to work with from contract to implementation, and their customer service was top notch,” says Joe Cronin, Senior IT Manager. “The SCS team was very dedicated to the process and they were truly vested to ensure the success of this project. They acted more like a partner then a vendor. The Layout-8000 and SCS/ClassPag systems were easily picked up by staff and that was thanks to the training from the SCS Staff.”

“In Layout-8000 and SCS/ClassPag, the Post-Gazette found solutions that provide a powerful bridge between Lineup and Libercus [the Post-Gazette’s editorial system],” says Phil Curtolo, Director of Sales at SCS. “SCS’s systems not only connect advertising seamlessly to editorial, but they do so with an unrivaled level of automation and transparency.”
Often referred to as the “PG,” the Post-Gazette is published by Block Communications, based in Toledo, Ohio. The PG joins The Toledo Blade, its sister paper, which has long used both Layout-8000 and SCS/ClassPag.

SCS offers an extensive line of publishing-related applications, including Layout-8000™. More than 300 sites producing over 1,000 publications in 18 countries in five languages use SCS mission-critical software every day. SCS is privately held by Richard and Martha Cichelli.
