Suedkurier is Germany's First Leading Publisher to Launch Electronic Edition With Olive Software

    DENVER, CO (ots) - Olive Software, Inc., a global leader in
digital publishing, archiving and electronic distribution
technologies, announced today that in cooperation with ProServ, the
Konstanz, Germany daily newspaper SUDKURIER (subsidiary of the
Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck) has launched its electronic
primary edition, using Olive's electronic circulation product,
ActivePaper Daily®. In the first week of reader registration,
SUDKURIER had more than 1'400 readers sign up for the daily
electronic edition.
    The SUDKURIER will offer the primary print edition in a digital
version on the Internet. "Readers and online users will have the
ability to subscribe either to the print or the online edition of our
newspaper," said Rainer Wiesner, Managing Director of SUDKURIER. "We
debuted with our primary edition and the other 15 regional editions
will follow within the next few months."
    Edgar Benkler, Managing Director for ProServ commented, "With the
successful start of Olive Software's e-paper solution, we are able to
provide SUDKURIER and other newspapers within the Verlagsgruppe von
Holtzbrinck group with an electronic version of their newspaper using
this robust technology. Short project periods and low-cost operations
through Olive offer our readers and online users a reasonably priced
daily edition of the newspaper - anytime, anywhere. Readers only need
to have access to the Internet."
    ActivePaper Daily is one of four electronic publishing solutions
offered through Olive's electronic publishing platform suite. All
four solutions are derived from one workflow, creating economies and
generating new revenue. The Olive platform is XML-based, enabling
exceptional flexibility, control, and management of content. Readers
may access the newspaper just as it appeared in print with their web
browser. The platform tools do not interfere with or change
publishers' existing workflow, enabling easy implementation and a
quick return on investment. "These selling points made the decision
for us to use Olive Software for our ePaper solution. With
ActivePaper Daily we have been able to realize our electronic
distribution goals without any changes to our print and advertisement
systems," noted Klaus Abele, Project Leader and Managing Director of
the online company of SUDKURIER.

publications, SUDKURIER, to our growing list of newspapers," said
Shaun Dail, Olive Executive Vice President. "With the successful
launch that SUDKURIER has already achieved, the Holtzbrinck group of
newspapers is positioned to dominate the market and achieve their
revenue goals."
