codeMantra Introduces New Collaborative Publishing Solutions

codeMantra, the technology-enabled services company serving the global publishing industry, announced today a series of new publishing solutions using advanced collaborative and production technologies. These publishing solutions, the first in a series to be announced over the next eighteen months, are built on codeMantra’s collectionPointTM platform and provide collaborative capabilities that integrate with a publisher’s existing workflow. They are immediately available to both new and existing codeMantra customers.

The newly released solutions provide end-to-end capabilities including automated content production services, digital warehousing and global distribution using a wide range of new technologies.

Walter Walker, codeMantra’s President, pointed out the increased client benefits. “Publishers can now take advantage of advanced solutions that are technology-enabled and collaborative, in a process that is more efficient and cost effective and that provides faster time to market for digital content. For example,” Walker continued, “codeMantra’s Composition Solution offers advanced ‘XML Anytime’ technology, along with project-level and content-level collaboration.”

The new technologies are built on the established, robust framework of codeMantra’s collectionPoint platform.

“We have partnered with codeMantra for more than eight years,” Margaret Harrison, Ebook Supply Chain Manager of Oxford University Press commented. “With the help of their Digital Warehouse and Distribution services, we have increased the efficiency of our global production and manufacturing operations and also built a significant ebook business from the ground up.”

The new technology-enabled solutions (TES) employ a combination of services:

Production Services includes design, development, composition, digital conversion, and collaboration at the content level, at the project level and with third parties. “Starting at the Composition Stage, all production can be accomplished using codeMantra’s TES Integrated Production Services. The publisher benefits from an advanced Collaboration and Workflow Management System that accommodates an existing workflow and delivers electronic and print-ready files quickly, efficiently and simultaneously,” said Walker.

Digital Warehouse enables third party collaboration as well as metadata management, among other capabilities. This service leverages a distributed cloud based infrastructure that enables rapid file transfers globally between employees, suppliers, vendors and distributors. The Digital Warehouse allows for customization through integration with existing enterprise and legacy systems to ingest data. The warehouse also enables configuring business rules that trigger specific production or distribution actions.

Global Distribution includes automated full channel distribution of files and metadata, file validation and compliance, and dynamic change feeds. Other capabilities include such features as automated widget and catalog creation, pre-configured retail partner setup and dashboard reporting.

Using these services, codeMantra can develop a complete end-to-end solution that composes content and metadata, stores finished goods and distributes content and metadata globally using automatic distribution facilities. Publishers will capitalize on one or more solutions depending on their specific needs. All are available in the unified collectionPoint platform (cP)—using capabilities that seamlessly integrate with the publishers’ existing workflows.
