Why work with us?

The global pandemic has changed book publishing over the last few months in more ways than we have seen in the past decade. The challenge to existing publishing workflows with publishers and their staff having to work from home rather than from their traditional offices is forcing tough decisions on costs, effort and managing the challenge of maintaining or even increasing the front-list. After the initial concerns in March 2020 of the drop in revenues in publishing most publishers in the UK and North America have bounced back strongly. Some imprints are wrestling with an increase the number of titles to meet demand, short run print titles are under pressure with POD and digital first titles being a preference. Some major customers have focused on digital publishing with a resurgence in eBook production. Remote working for editorial and publishing teams has focused on looking for productive tools to be increasingly used from the home-desktop. The past few months publishing is being forced to adapt and transform which will have an impact for years to come. Although print will never die the way in which readers of books and other media, such as magazines, newspapers and journals, consume digital content is growing.

We understand the issues faced by publishers in the ever-changing digital world and provide latest , scalable and flexible publishing technology solutions to overcome today's challenges. Multi-channel publishing has never been simpler.
