LONDON - November 20, 2003 - (MacExpo) Quark Inc. today announced that sales of Quark Publishing System (QPS) have spiked in Q4. More QPS software licenses were sold in October and November than in the rest of the 2003 combined. QPS is used by at least 50,000 users at more than 900 publishing sites worldwide.
"Implementation of QPS is the keystone of our move to bring editorial processes to a higher level of quality. QPS will let us double our publishing volume without increasing of human resources. It will shorten our publishing cycles, and consequently broaden our readership," said Dmitri Krendelev, deputy director of Moscow News.
Two editions of Quark Publishing System
At its most basic, QPS lets individuals collaborate on content assembly from several sources in a variety of formats for different media while assigning, routing, and tracking revisions of each piece of content for a printed publication or the Web.
There are two editions of QPS. Quark Publishing System Classic Edition (QPS Classic) is based on QuarkDispatch server with a proprietary database. The robust Quark Digital Media Server content management platform is the basis for the new Quark Publishing System Enterprise Edition (QPS Enterprise), which uses an Oracle database. QPS Enterprise can be configured with a variety of powerful add-on technologies to give professional publishers latitude in choosing the most appropriate system for their needs.
