Press release from the issuing company
April 24, 2007 -- SoftCare today announced that the Christian Science Monitor, the Boston-based source for national and international news and commentary since 1908, has purchased a 75-seat installation of publishing system SoftCare K4 for its newsroom. Editors at the Monitor are using the new publishing system based on Adobe InDesign to produce the print edition of the century-old paper as well as to package content for its Web site, www.csmonitor.com. MEI is the exclusive distributor of K4 in the Americas and is in charge of installing the system.
“MEI has been tremendous and has positioned the Monitor, from a technical perspective, in the best possible position for growth and innovation,” said Christian Science Monitor CIO Curt Edge. “K4 is incredible. It provides the extensibility and power to keep us moving forward.”
“We‘re very excited the Monitor started using K4 for print and Web output right out of the gate,” said Dennis McGuire, CEO of MEI. “After surveying all the other options on the market, they went for the power and flexibility of K4.”
The Christian Science Monitor is the first publication in the United States to go live with K4 5.7, the latest version of the editorial software SoftCare K4. The Monitor is also the first U.S. purchaser of the K4 Web Editor module for remote editing and writing via the Internet.
