"This licensing agreement will enable our newspaper customers to integrate, customize and intelligently manage the AP's unmatched depth of sports agate content," said Bruno Taquois, Soho's Head of Sales. "This is especially important in today's highly competitive publishing environment that is increasingly driven by the need for speed and accuracy."

"Given the daily publishing demands and challenges faced by newspapers worldwide, this arrangement demonstrates Soho's ongoing commitment to provide integrated, innovative and cost effective solutions -such as Page Ready and Print Ready- in response to the changing needs of publishers operating in this sector," said Joe Scarfi, Soho's Sales Director for North America.
