The world of publishing is in a constant state of catch-up with the latest tools and trends changing every day. What can publishers address now within their production operations to become more efficient, adopt modern practices, and remain agile as the industry continues to evolve?
Join industry experts Bill Kasdorf and Greg Suprock as they share use cases from the field detailing how publishers have overcome common challenges within each spectrum of the publishing process:
- Authoring and editing: How do you resolve interrupted workflows due to a lack of expertise in authoring and editing software?
- Production: What choices will help support producing a myriad of print and digital outputs?
- Distribution: How are publishers keeping up with the move to mobile?
- Digital Asset Management: How do you eliminate redundancy and inefficiency in managing your content?
This one-hour online webinar will end with a Q&A session. Bill and Greg have collectively been working with publishers of all shapes and sizes for over forty years providing guidance and technological expertise on workflow, XML, accessibility, and more. Join us to learn new ways you can address these old problems.
