A press release by ppi Media dated 13 August informs that the North Westphalia-based Mindener Tageblatt newspaper will be relying on CtP output control and planning, page assembly and ad pagination solutions from ppi Media. This change is taking place in the context of involvement in a publishing group with the Neue Westfälische and Lippische Landes-Zeitung newspapers, which have been already using planning and production modules from ppi Media for years.

The Mindener Tageblatt is cooperating with the Neue Westfälische and Lippische Landes-Zeitung dailies and will use the IT infrastructure for planning and production of the publishing group in future. The Mindener Tageblatt is thus also counting on the output management OM and planning solution PlanPag from ppi Media. In addition, the software components ProPag for page assembly, AdPag for ad pagination and the OM Portal for online customer access will be used for transfer of print orders at the Mindener Tageblatt.

The objective is to optimize the production workflows of the popular regional daily newspaper and make synergies possible between the publishing houses. “We are delighted to be able to optimize our production processes through the publishing group and the related changes to planning and production solutions from ppi Media,” explained publishing manager Carsten Lohmann.

The IT service provider Media IT-Partner, already responsible for the management of publishing systems within the publishing group, will be in charge of managing the change to publishing solutions from ppi Media. The project has already started and will be implemented gradually by the end of the year.

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.
