Periodicals are easily some of the most complex products in traditional publishing - with their shorter deadlines, multiple contributors and collaborators, delivery and distribution across multiple media and other critical factors like cost.
The need of the hour is for a simplified, technology-driven solution that enables structured authoring, collaborative development during content creation and production, rapid multi-channel output, non-linear production models and savings in time and cost.
Qbend's Tech Solutions has built such a solution that is already delivering great results in terms of efficiencies and cost savings for Elsevier, the leading global STM publisher.
Qbend enables publishers worldwide to help them handle the new age publishing process with ease, scalability and flexibility.
Where Would Qbend's Tech solutions Fit?
Publishing is a complex process with so many activities coming together to produce a book or journal or other publications. Developments in many of these departments make them move farther and farther away from each other in terms of collaborative working and creates silos within the publishing organization.
Often, integration between these departments are loosely coupled and do not take advantage of the efficiencies that can be brought to the process by a tighter coupling.
Qbend's Tech Solutions will help identify these potential opportunities and develop systems that can enable better collaboration, information sharing and exchange of data across the organization to derive maximum value from the publishing process.
The systems developed will be built exactly to the needs of the publishing organization with future scalability and adaptability in mind.
