“Cloud Authoring gives everyone access to digital publishing. An SMB can convert its commercial brochure and publish it as an app. A self-published children’s book author can convert his or her drawing into ePUB format for eBook platforms,”

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. Documents for apps are easily formatted and exported with Guided Reading to improve the end-user experience. And the great WebReader export option lets companies publish all content directly to their website.”
