System Integrators Inc, the Sacramento, California company where the founder is seeking to retake control via an offer for its shares, has plenty to celebrate here in Europe: it has just won contracts with three of the biggest newspaper groups Uitgeversmaatschappij C Misset BV of Doetinchem, Holland, The Financial Times Ltd, London (seen its new glass monstrosity on Southwark’s Bankside? It’s terrible) and Axel Springer Verlag AG, Bonn, West Germany; Misset is in for a second System Integrators publishing system – the System/55, plus over 50 additional Coyote 22 editorial terminals with soft typesetting, and the STYL/Plus typesetting and modular page make-up packages for editorial pagination; the FT has ordered additional front-end kit for publishing the pink’un, including eight Tandem Computers TXP processors to support the demands of an additional 350 terminal network of reporters, editors and production workers; and Springer has bought software for use in the production of the financial section in the Die Welt daily – and will be taking a new fault tolerant Tandem Non-Stop TXP to run it; no values were given for the three contracts.
