Who we are
Apex CoVantage is a technology-led supplier of prepress, data conversion, editorial, and content enhancement services to publishers, libraries, and owners of large content collections worldwide. Founded in 1988 by Shashikant and Margaret Gupta, Apex is rooted in the ability to remove friction from processes. Our technologies and systems leverage Human Process Engineering to provide effective, cost-efficient solutions to our customers who own or create huge amounts of content – from manuscripts to photos and videos and in-between. By balancing leading technology and broad industry expertise, Apex delivers exceptional content and media solutions to its customers. Apex has been managing large-scale content projects around the world for nearly 30 years.
A history of innovation
Apex has imagined and created revolutionary technologies that answer critical problems our customers have struggled to answer. Created in-house by industry experts, our technologies drive streamlined workflows, flawless conversion, and unrivaled project delivery results. The ability to remain flexible and adapt to change is one of our biggest strengths, keeping some of our clients with us for upwards of twenty years.
Headquartered outside of Washington, D.C. in the suburb of Herndon, VA, Apex operates globally with employees throughout the US, UK and India. Our state-of-the-art headquarters in Hyderabad exemplifies the world-class level of excellence Apex has always striven for. Our employees commonly stay with us for five, sometimes over fifteen years because of the unique culture we’ve created, ensuring consistency and expertise when you work with us.
Built on values
Apex’s culture is driven by a set of core values – integrity, human dignity, excellence, and creativity. Profit is not the goal of our work, but the result of our commitment to these values proven through a thirty-year history helping customers solve old problems in new ways. True to Apex’s values, a portion of our profits are given back in charitable donations through the Gupta Family Foundation.
Giving back through the Gupta Family Foundation
Formerly known as the Apex Foundation, the Gupta Family Foundation has supported self-empowerment programs that assist and inspire people challenged by poverty, disability, or discrimination to achieve self-sufficiency since 1992. The foundation evaluates and awards grants annually with a focus on smaller, non-governmental organizations led by individuals with deep personal commitment to their projects, ensuring the maximum percentage of grant monies directly reaches its beneficiaries. The Gupta Family Foundation is a private, nonprofit foundation.
