states Thomas Ribreau, technical director at Aquafadas.

“The main benefit of Cloud Authoring is that it transforms time-consuming tasks into quick, easy and automatic workflows. Plus, it provides a beautiful rendering. ePUB Fixed Layout generation by Cloud Authoring offers superior results over standard ePUB conversion tools.

And the great WebReader export option lets companies publish all content directly to their website.”
