Khaleej Times Completes Multi-phase project with Naviga

July 2022 marked a major milestone for the Galadari Printing and Publishing Company based in Dubai. Two modernization projects with Naviga were completed during July. They are now live on Naviga’s Content and Advertising products for the Khaleej Times and City Times. This capped off an earlier project in the Fall of 2021 where they installed Naviga’s Digital Content Creation suite for their newsroom and their flagship website, www.khaleejtimes.com. This latest phase moved the Khaleej teams forward to using Naviga Ad, Naviga Plan and the Naviga Print Production Workbench. All of these solutions are hosted in the AWS cloud environment. This was a truly international project for Naviga. Teams from the US, UK, Sweden, Denmark and India were involved in the delivery and roll out of the software.

St. Joseph Communications goes live with Naviga Ad

Naviga had the chance to welcome back an old friend in May of 2022. St. Joseph used an earlier generation of Naviga’s advertising software in the past. During 2021, they moved to another system.

So they started their system search in 2021 and re-evaluated the leading Order Management Systems available today. Naviga Ad was determined to be the best fit for their business needs. Due the dedicated staff from St. Joseph and Naviga, the project was able to go live in less than 70 days.
