How S.N.A.P. Works

S.N.A.P. stores all content in a central content management repository for easy access. The content is structured for retrieval using database queries or custom-built APIs. Editors can work on the content from within the S.N.A.P. Content Management System (CMS) for making updates, manage versioning and a host of other features.

Integration with a strong, extensible publishing framework enables this content to be used in a variety of publishing formats suited to the need. These can go into reports, publications, documents and various other forms - both for print, eBook, online publishing and the mobile space. The robust customization framework makes it easy to mix and match chunks of content to create new publications.
