Axes Systems is pleased to announce that PUBLICPRESS, Germany has joined its ever-growing customer base which includes several German states and cities as well as private publishing houses.

Germany is a favorite destination for many travellers, including the Germans themselves. It offers beautiful cities and relaxing countryside with extensive recreational attractions. People make their way through Germany by car, bike, motorcycle and on foot. As in most places, information is not in short supply.

27 years ago, PUBLICPRESS began to consolidate that information in maps. Over the years, the number and type of maps that PUBLICPRESS produces have grown to include hiking, biking, motorcycle and street maps - all in the right scales. These popular maps are known today as 'The Maps with the Sun'.

Because map users have become accustomed to a variety of maps of different scales and themes and expect them to be current, PUBLICPRESS decided to change their map production from the use of graphic files to a data base system to allow for easy updating and creation of thematic maps. The number of graphic files that PUBLICPRESS maintained had reached over 500 and had become time-consuming to manage. "We were looking for a system that covered the entire production process, allowed us to easily migrate our existing Freehand® graphic files to one seamless data base and provided a possibility to collaborate easily with external partners," says Heinz Nettsträter, general director of PUBLICPRESS. "The axpand Software as a Service solution gives us excellent value for our money. We don't need to invest in new expensive server infrastructure and can continue using our MACs or Windows PCs."

PUBLICPRESS is making use of axpand Professional, an SaaS application, which allows for the creation of new, quality products faster and more economically than before. axpand Collaborate allows external partners of PUBLICPRESS to access their data base directly over the internet. "This is something very unique and will make our work with external partners so much more efficient and economical," says Heinz Nettsträter. "Best of all, we have complete control over the tasks and map quality at all times." More information about PUBLICPRESS and its wide array of map products can be found under www.publicpress.de.
