Press release from the issuing company

Hamburg / Munich - vjoon K4® customers are remarkably creative and successful as a host of international corporate publishing awards attests. This year’s takings were again impressive, but vjoon K4’s contribution often goes unmentioned. This was not the case at the 2014 FOX Awards when Siemens AG’s annual report won the Special Award for Workflow Efficiency. vjoon K4 was on stage with the service provider ccs.tirol to accept this honor. ccs.tirol prepares the integrated annual report for all media and to Siemens AG’s specifications using the cross-media publishing platform vjoon K4 in innovative and effective ways. The agency taps the application’s potential to maximize synergetic effects when incorporating print ads, video clips and corporate collateral, tying in the web and intranet, and delivering content to the business units and countries. vjoon K4 was also used to forge an innovative link to the Federal Gazette’s database enabling the required data to be exported automatically and in compliance with statutory provisions.

“The importance of corporate publishing in corporate communications is on the rise. A trend towards cross-media publishing is manifesting. We are very proud to have won an award for the exceptionally efficient preparation of the annual report of Siemens AG, which goes to show we are on the right track with vjoon K4,” said Claus Heinrich, CEO of ccs.tirol.

The winning solution:
A key management tool for many agencies and companies, vjoon K4 streamlines the corporate publishing workflow, providing assurance and transparency while affording editors the freedom to pursue to conceptual and creative ideas. The jury around Prof. Dr. Kreulich from the department print and media technology at Munich University of Applied Sciences was impressed with the overall concept of the integrated annual report, its implementation and the connection to the interface of the Federal Gazette. The latter’s special format requirements presented quite a challenge in terms of the layout, but the vjoon K4 XML Exporter rose to the occasion with an automated process. The content of the annual report’s print edition was exported from vjoon K4, converted to meet the statutory requirements, and loaded to the Federal Gazette’s interface. vjoon’s integration partner mainblau GmbH from the greater Frankfurt metropolitan region provides integration services and technical support for the vjoon K4 environment at ccs.tirol.
