Publishing

End-to-end digital solutions for ultra short-run books

Exceed publishers’ expectations
The core of our publishing solutions? Automated workflow. It works flawlessly with your existing systems and printers. With it, you can manage data efficiently, produce all kinds of ultra-short run books quickly and track elements from start to finish.

 

Focus on efficiency and profits
Sync your goals with publishers’ goals. Help them reduce inventory and warehousing costs while you increase revenue and profitability. Our solution helps you eliminate manual touch points and produce jobs, even books of one, like clockwork. And you can reprint damaged or missing elements automatically.



Get it in your size
Off-the-shelf solutions may not be quite right or don’t integrate easily, which leads to workarounds. We customize a modular solution for you, so you know it’s right. When you’re ready, you can add optional features. And you can count on us to provide integration, training, and remote or onsite support.

 

Accept data-rich jobs
Books might be your core business, but why not expand into customized publishing, like course packs or manuals? Or critical communications, which have to be produced perfectly because they’re regulated. Our automated workflows and digital front ends work with all kinds of file formats and datastreams. And it’s easy to create reports for compliance or billing purposes.



 

Rip and replace? No need.
Some vendors are stymied by the complexity of merging old and new technology. We’re not. As long as your software and printers provide value, we’ll find a way to keep them going. You can even integrate third-party products or tools you’ve developed yourself.
