Having been at the forefront of the British publishing industry for 45 years, PCS are always looking ahead to innovating for the future.
2018 has already to off to an exciting start for British publishing with leading regional groups trialing a robot reporting programme called RADAR, developed by the Press Association and funded by Google. Twenty local newspapers, including PCS customers MNA and Newsquest, have published stories produced by the automated news service since the pilot began in November 2017. The target is to produce 30,000 stories per month using open government and local authority databases, and story templates, to generate automatic stories about health, crime, employment and other subjects.
With an in-house, UK based development and support team – PCS is right by your side from concept to delivery and beyond, whatever your magazine or newspaper workflow. Constantly evolving our solutions, we can facilitate collaboration across editorial, advertising and circulation whether it is humans or robots at the wheel.

New for this month will be the Digital Editor enhancement to Knowledge Publish, our collaboration and editorial management platform. Directly in response to customer needs, Digital Editor changes the way stories are published digitally to a publisher’s website with the ability to embed rich media content and send to print simultaneously.
