Initially launched as a pilot project, the services offered by ppi Media have become an integral part of the day-to-day work at the Schleswig-Holsteinischer Zeitungsverlag. ppi Media employees make specific changes as requested by the sh:z newsroom to the page planning of the newspapers to be produced in ppi’s planning solution PlanPag, which has been used at the sh:z for many years. Based upon the queries they receive from the editorial team, the experts carry out the requested planning changes, such as changing a part-page in a local edition or adapting common pages, before reporting the change back to the editorial department. This ensures reliable planning changes at a short notice, even outside the core working hours of the publisher’s internal production control.

“We decided to use the new service offered by ppi Media after a successful test phase. It goes without saying that the software producer’s employees have excellent knowledge of their own planning and production programs. Thanks to our long-term cooperation, ppi Media was also very familiar with the production workflows at the sh:z,” says Torsten Lops, head of production at Schleswig-Holsteinischer Zeitungsverlag.

After a short introduction into the respective production structures, the team of ppi Media specialists takes over the production control in close cooperation with the publisher’s employees and at the required times, reliably easing the pressure on the publisher’s varied shift.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
