Publishers who want to improve their own processes and systems hire us to help them formulate and then implement a customized plan. We provide analysis, dialogue, and a set of recommendations that empower our customers to solve the hard problems of their publishing workflow and increase profitability.
Why do we need workflow consulting?
You might be a good candidate for consulting if one of the following scenarios applies to your business or ministry:
- You have a mature print publishing workflow, but you are struggling to integrate digital publishing with it.
- You’ve seen presentations for “workflow solutions,” but the vendors seem more interested in their software than in your business, and you aren’t confident that the solutions are going to meet your needs.
- You have developed your own in-house ebook production process, but the quality of the ebooks that you are able to produce is not what you would like it to be.
- Ebook production and distribution is always a hassle, and you would like it to be easier.
- You are outsourcing ebook production to an ebook developer and you would like to bring ebook production in-house, but aren’t sure how to go about it.
- You have developed a “digital strategy,” but so far you’ve come up short on options for implementing your vision.
We can help you formulate and implement a plan of action.
Here are some of the things we can help you do:
- Integrate ebook production with print production.
- Streamline the distribution of ebooks to retailers.
- Navigate the options for selling print and digital products directly.
- Become less dependent on the publishing industry’s largest retailer.
- Develop your own online and mobile presence.
- Make your publishing operation more streamlined, efficient, and professional without creating headaches or greatly increasing workload.
