After successfully implementing Layout-8000 and SCS/ClassPag in 2018, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette selected SCS/Track to bolster its production environment and replace its legacy system. The Post-Gazette, owned by Toledo-based media company, Block Communications (BCI), went live with SCS/Track in July of 2019.
Meantime, The BCI-owned Toledo Blade—which has been an SCS customer for more than two decades—has decided to join its sister paper in moving forward with SCS/Track. The Blade is projected to go live with SCS/Track in the next few weeks.
Now that the two newspapers are running the same production systems from SCS—Layout-8000,™ SCS/ClassPag™, and SCS/Track—they serve as disaster recovery backups for one another and can seamlessly transition their workload between Toledo and Pittsburgh in a disaster situation.
