Our most important job is translating the needs of our customers into solutions.
While our web-based software offers numerous components tailored to the publishing industry, we realize that each linear system must be customized to the needs of the customer.
So, we begin by understanding a customers needs. Then, we configure a Linear system designed to
address the client's specific needs. Almost always, this means adapting our solution for each individual client.
Certainly we have strategies for subscriber, advertiser and management control of your Web site, but these are only the foundation for the solution we design for each client.
So, what do we do? We design and host Web sites for publications. We train our customers on operating the Web site.Following deployment, we provide free technical support, comprehensive documentation and continual upgrades.
Our solutions can also include Web-based email, e-commerce, ftp and custom internal management tools. Anything a newspaper wants on the internet -we provide.
