Serious Technology penetrates Singapore publishing software market with Viscion Media Group. Viscion will adopt WoodWing Smart Connection Enterprise (SCE) suite for their editorial workflow. They have more than five titles and more to follow in 2008.

Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA (December 17, 2007) - Viscion Media Group has turned another page in the publishing industry by being the first company in Singapore to adopt the SCE suite from WoodWing Software through Serious Technology. Adopted by major publishers such as Time Inc. and Conde Nast, this latest generation of publishing software streamlines processes, improves efficiency, promotes supervision, and paves the way for the future of publishing with the introduction of the ‘blended media’ approach.

For Viscion Media Group, this solution is the perfect match to accommodate its high speed growth. Since full operation about 11 months ago, Viscion has expanded its employee base from 5 to over 50 full-time staff and produced four magazines and one newspaper. By using WoodWing’s Internet-based real time publishing platform, its team can work remotely from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. “This is the office of the future today where teams can work effectively offsite and more efficiently,” said Viscion Media General Manager, Holman Chin. “Our investment in this software platform confirms our commitment to becoming one of the leading publishers in the world.”

Comments Alexander Knight, Sales Director WoodWing Singapore, “Without a doubt, Singapore is one of the most competitive publishing markets in the world. Here, Viscion stands out as a young and dynamic company with the vision to adopt cutting edge solutions such as ours. I remember visiting Viscion with our System Integrator, Serioustec. We showed the company what we do, and an hour later, we had a deal. That’s how fast they work!”

"Our strength has been implementation, we make it work. More publishers are joining our successful network of happy customers, this year alone we implemented five media groups which produce more than 10 titles, range from magazines to daily newspaper. But the story is yet to finish for 2007, watch our website for few more surprises before Christmas", added John Fong, Chief Executive Officer of Serioustec.

“One of the reasons that SCE has become the publishing system of choice for major publishers around the world is that we never stop adding innovations,” said Remco Koster, Managing Director of WoodWing Asia Pacific. “With the
latest version 5.0, we’ve added a host of new features that will benefit users and publications across the spectrum. We’ve put special emphasis on providing tools for convergence, allowing publishers to use all available forms of media — print, Web, audio and video — to tell their story. It’s a concept that we call ‘blended media’.”
