Harnessing Technology to Bring Efficiencies to Digital Workflows
Time & Location
About The Event
Join Mark Collins, an expert in digital workflows and digital asset management software who has worked with publishers including Wiley, Egmont, Bloomsbury, Macmillan and Hay House. As staff continue to work from home, editors and designers need remote access to files, sales teams are not able to pack and post galleys and it is more important now than ever for digital materials to be easily available. Publishers are having to rapidly move to digital workflows and securely sharing PDFs and digital files at all stages. The session will look at how technology and software can support remote working and bring efficiencies to otherwise time consuming and manual processes, with real-life examples and experiences from Walker Books and Candlewick Press and a Q&A session with Mark Collins. Learn how you can harness technology to bring efficiencies to your digital workflows including: - Support remote collaborative working throughout the typesetting and approval process for manuscripts and jacket images. - Repurpose content and transform files automatically. - Automate catalogue production. - Securely share previews and galleys with media and customers. - Distribute final files to printers and retailers.
