We want to hear from you: Workflow automation in modern publishing Take the Survey
Digital publishing expertise for the future-ready publisher.
The way users consume content has changed. Are you keeping up?
Traditional publishing has been completely transformed by the mobile era. We are no longer focused on just producing pages in a book or journal, but on delivering experiences through all kinds of formats, devices, and platforms – books, websites, smartphones, tablets, e-readers, and whatever comes next. Are your systems agile enough to keep up with the pace of change?
If entrenched workflows based on old methods and older technology are holding you back, Apex can help with XML workflow and content management consulting.
Stay on the cutting edge of publishing technology
We make it our job to know what is happening—and what’s about to happen—in digital publishing and help our clients understand and adopt technologies that are revolutionizing the business.
Outdated processes slow down your products and people. We can help you streamline workflows to publish faster, reduce rework, keep you competitive, and improve your bottom line.
Implement agile solutions
Rather than tearing down and rebuilding your systems every few years, we help you create agile systems and workflows that can quickly adapt to whatever comes next.
Manage Organizational Change
Through a “listen and ask” approach, Apex consultants pay attention to those within an organization who resist change the most, and turn them into advocates.
Apex’s leading consultants know publishing because they started out working for publishers. Our clients trust Apex to understand their pain and apply decades of experience to find innovative solutions to the complexities of publishing today.
