International publishing company Sanoma Magazines chose Mendix software to build their Magazine Production Portal and to streamline their production and distribution processes. Sanoma will use the web services based Magazine Production Portal to structure the production tasks of its 80 illustrated magazines. The solution acts as a digital layer between the underlying SAP-system and data that is sent to business partners and distributors. Through managing the complex production and distribution processes, the portal results in a standard communication method.

“Currently all communication needed for the production and distribution of illustrated magazines is done by phone, fax and e-mail,’ said Mendix CEO Derek Roos. ‘So far there was no standard way of communication, which easily could lead to miscommunication. Also, using several unconnected systems, not all relevant information was available in one place. The Mendix solution provides Sanoma with a process & portal layer between the underlying SAP system and information that is sent to printers, finishers and distributors. By standardizing and streamlining these production tasks the chance of miscommunication is reduced to a minimum.”

By using Mendix software, Sanoma Magazines has been able to build the Magazine Production Portal in a very fast and cost efficient way. The Portal automates complete configuration of Sanoma magazines’ production tasks in a single, organized and easy-to-use portal. After collecting data from the underlying SAP system, the Portal configures the information and delivers it to all involved parties. For each separate illustrated magazine all relevant information is delivered in XML. After configuration the data is written back directly to the SAP system where all related information is automatically processed.

Hubert Grim, Information & Organization manager at Sanoma commented: “The production of illustrated magazines is a complex process. Although we already used a portal solution, a lot of processes were finished manually. The communication flows with all suppliers are intense and miscommunication couldn’t always be avoided. Mendix, together with their service partner Magnus Technology Consultants professionally analyzed our challenges and could offer the ideal solution: the Magazine Production Portal. The speed and flexibility of Mendix and their knowledge on this subject were impressive. We now work with the Magazine Production Portal and the results are very positive.”

Joost Prinsen, Manager Prints & Distribution Services at Sanoma: “Initially I thought that building the Magazine Production Portal would take a lot more time than six months. However, Magnus and Mendix beat my expectations, with a professional approach and the use of the flexible Mendix software. Actually, we now have even more features and functionality than originally thought! With the Magazine Production Portal we made an important step ahead in streamlining our business processes.”
