Challenges at the Client’s End
As a leading e-publishing house, the client was posed at the enviable position of handling demand that outstripped their capacity.

Three more people were added in the team and specially trained to handle the volume of work while maintaining the client’s strict quality standards.
Most of the files were in PDF format, which was converted into XHTML format. We maintained a strict timetable in keeping with the client’s requirement, including a narrow window of 8-hour for a weekly publication. Adapted and modifying coding according to the client’s feedback while creating customized solutions through Adobe Reader, MobiPocket, Adobe Digital Editions, and Stanza.
