Leading Global B2B Publisher switches to QuarkXPress 8 and Quark Publishing System

Incisive Media Ltd enhances collaboration and multichannel publishing with 250 licences of QuarkXPress and Quark Publishing System

LONDON - 6/22/2010 - Quark Inc. today announced that Incisive Media Ltd, one of the world's leading B2B information providers, has chosen to upgrade 250 licenses of QuarkXPress® 8, as well as add equivalent licenses of Quark® Publishing System for its 89 publications serving the financial and professional services markets globally.

Incisive Media is a leading global provider of specialty business news and information, in print, in person, and online. The company's principal markets include financial services, legal and accounting services, marketing services, technology, and risk management. Incisive Media's market-leading brands include Accountancy Age, Search Engine Strategies, Computer Active, Investment Week, Legal Week, Post, Risk, and V3.co.uk.

Incisive Media has an unquestioned reputation for delivering high quality, timely information in various formats. With QuarkXPress 8 and a dynamic publishing solution based on Quark Publishing System, Incisive Media is now able to improve collaboration among its authors and publish to different platforms seamlessly. Thanks to the versatility of Quark Publishing System, Incisive Media can decide which desktop publishing software best suits the needs of each publication and still have a single unified workflow system.

David Worsfold, Group Editorial Services Director at Incisive Media: “As a global provider of information we need to deliver accurate content for print, web, and mobile in almost real-time to always be competitive in an increasingly tough market. We have also had a longstanding aim to be neutral in terms of desktop publishing solutions, to be able to use the programme most appropriate to the needs of our very varied product portfolio, but to do this within a top-class workflow system. Quark offered us the opportunity to achieve this, reducing our costs, improving productivity, and maximising revenues through syndication with Quark’s dynamic publishing solutions.

We needed to work in an environment where we could combine high-quality graphic design using both QuarkXPress and InDesign with workflow collaboration and automation, so we chose Quark’s slick multi-channel publishing and easy XML extraction. Thanks to Quark Publishing System we now have a very cost-effective editorial system that also allows us to boost content syndication and therefore profit,” concluded Worsfold.

Matthew Wallis, Quark Senior Vice President of Sales in Europe and Africa: “Quark remains committed to providing solutions to streamline publishing processes, increase overall efficiency, and deliver first-class design. The combination of our flagship product, QuarkXPress 8, and our innovative dynamic publishing solutions - in this case based around Quark Publishing System - is delivering great results for companies around the world and we are delighted to have Incisive Media join us in this next revolution in publishing.”
