codeMantra Improves Publishers’ Time-to-Market by 800%

LIGHTNING RELEASES: Boston, MA (3/11/2014)– To make it easier and more efficient for publishers to compose, move files and assets of any size, manage, and distribute documents, codeMantra today announced it has collaborated with its customers to design and implement an enhanced workflow solution.  The combination of innovative cloud-based storage, a new content delivery network (CDN) and improved processes has resulted in a reduced turnaround time of more than 800%. 

“Reducing time-to-market is critical for publishers that need to meet the on-demand needs of institutions and end-users alike,” said Walter W.J. Walker, President of CodeMantra.  “Today’s libraries are increasingly adopting “just-in-time” purchasing models like Demand-driven Acquisition, and end-users seeking information, particularly students and professionals in STM related fields, need and expect answers instantaneously.”

“Historically it has taken publishers a minimum of 72 hours to complete the publishing lifecycle with large “bulk” file uploads,” continued Walker.  “With our new technology enhancements to our collectionPoint 3.0 platform, our collaborative production workflow has reduced that time significantly.  In just a few hours, publishers can now deliver files that are ready for sale on any retailer’s or academic institution’s digital book shelf.”

In less than a workday, publishers can leverage codeMantra to:

  • Create and design digital and print titles with the Crescendo Platform, with optional composition and conversion services
  • Easily move any files and assets — regardless of size — within their publishing workflow. Large-scale images and print-ready files can quickly be transferred between typesetters, editors, printers, institutions, distributors and retailers
  • Manage documents with collectionPoint 3.0, codeMantra’s flagship Digital Asset Management (DAM) and Digital Distribution (DAD) platform, that is included with the Crescendo Platform
  • Customize the end-user experience under their own brands with codeMantra’s Duet eBook Reader, debuting at the London Book Fair in April
