Virtusales Publishing Solutions, leading software supplier to publishers worldwide, is delighted to announce that The Chinese University of Hong Kong Press has selected BiblioLIVE to centralise their publishing processes.
The Chinese University of Hong Kong Press (CUHK Press) was looking to introduce a centralised system to optimise their processes and workflows in order to support continued home working during the Covid-19 crisis and to future-proof their business practices.
Implementing an efficient publishing system was deemed essential to maintain their current, everyday processes while continuing to work remotely. The press reviewed a number of systems and suppliers before selecting BiblioLIVE due to some unique benefits including support for Chinese characters and ability to publish bilingual publications.
“Virtusales and BiblioLIVE was recommended to us by some members of the Association of University Presses and was the only system we looked at that supports Chinese characters and bilingual publications. It will provide all departments with access to the latest accurate title information and approved digital files in a single system accessible securely and remotely 24/7.”
