NoMachine, creator and global provider of NX desktop and application delivery software, today announced that NX is being deployed by Software Consulting Service's (SCS) customers to ensure software availability providing remote access to newspaper industry programs on Linux servers in the customers' data centers. SCS develops, delivers, and supports computerized publishing systems via NX technology.
Newspaper customers of SCS across the world use NX to remotely and reliably access software they need to aid them with the design and layout of their papers. Sun Media Group of Ontario, Canada and The Derrick of Oil City, PA are only a couple of the many SCS customers using NoMachine NX. SCS provides their customers with Layout 8000, the leading newspaper ad dummying system, along with AdMax for retail and classified advertising management and accounting, SCS/ClassPag for rapid classified pagination and SCS/Track for integrated ad tracking. Their newsroom systems include SCOOP for editorial and news pagination and Footware's products for image archiving. NX provides a reliable connection to these indispensable resources for SCS customers with demanding travel schedules allowing them to proof, complete work and meet deadlines from various locations.
Founder and co-owner of SCS, Martha Cichelli, said, “NX has a highly noticeable speed performance difference compared to other remote access solutions. We include NX exclusively in all of our proposals for the Linux Server because we want to offer our customers the best solution possible. We even use NX ourselves here at SCS to connect to our internal network remotely to provide support for our customers and perform other important tasks while traveling or at home.”
Sun Media Group, one of Canada's leading publishers of daily and non-daily newspapers, magazines, and specialty publications, is deploying NX in over 30 Linux-based publications. In a 24-hour, 365-day, deadline-driven environment, flexibility is a top priority. With the SCS and NX software combination, Sun Media journalists can lay out any paper from any of their four sites, quickly and securely from wherever they might be resulting in efficient, profitable and well-designed editions.
Software Administrator for Sun Media, John Mosley said, “With Layout 8000 from SCS and NoMachine NX we are able to lay out our papers faster without the need to travel. Everything we need is at our fingertips, no matter what our location is, creating an easily manageable network. NoMachine NX's seamless training and set up makes it easy to use and make adjustments along the way as well.”
The Derrick is another publication customer of SCS using NoMachine NX daily to access Admax and Layout 8000 applications on the Linux host from users' desktops. Users can easily access the NX Server from various locations to run any application on any PC. The Derrick also found NoMachine NX to be cheaper than competitors creating an affordable remote access solution.
Systems Administrator for The Derrick, Jon MacPherson, said “NoMachine NX allows us to efficiently and effectively run publishing applications that drive our business. While out of the office and outside normal business hours, we can connect to the server and work just as if we were there. This flexibility has also benefited IT staff in their trouble shooting efforts from remote locations. Any system challenges that arise can be managed immediately on the server infrastructure remotely.”
