Milan Presse Migrates 30 Books to Digital in Record Time
Milan Presse, a subsidiary of Bayard, has been using Cloud Authoring to automate a standard, yet extremely tedious and time-consuming conversion workflow. "When we decided to go digital, we had less than two months to convert 30 illustrated books into ePUB 3. Not only did Cloud Authoring enable us to accomplish this massive task in such a short timeframe, but we were able to do so with high-quality results,? explains Benjamin Babron, graphic designer at Milan Presse. ?Cloud Authoring doesn?t monopolize our servers or our publishing team. All of the work is done on Aquafadas? servers, in the cloud, leaving our servers free for our use. Our graphic designers can use the platform in total autonomy and without any technical skills.
