Managing Publishing Projects

 

Publishing businesses are built around projects that all look the same: the same number of pages, the same photos and illustrations, the same printing formats, and you can even count on each type of project taking about the same amount of time. But you know that every project is unique and you have to create the content from scratch every time. You can define the types of jobs you do pretty easily:

 

  • Standard Hardcover and Paperbacks
  • Instruction, Education and Reference Books
  • Art, Photo and Design Books
  • Children's Books
  • Hobby and How-To's

 

But each book needs to be approached in a certain way to meet specific needs. And you need to get the book out now. You know how to do it, its just a pain to keep up with the demands and keep track of who's doing what and when. Infowit to the rescue.

Manage the Publishing Process Your Way

 

If you're like most publishers you have a unique process for getting projects done on time and under budget. Infowit gives you the platform to make sure you maintain those processes even as you work too fast or grow too quickly to keep up. Infowit is customized to your unique business processes, so if you divide your book projects into phases for creative, production work and printing, or if you look at projects as the work to be done for copywriting, photography, and book design, Infowit works the way you do. It adapts to you, rather than the other way around.

 

Attuned to Creative Businesses

 

Creative projects are always a collaboration between you, your authors, your staff and your vendors. Sometimes everyone does some part of each process, and communications is key:

 

  • Define tasks for staff and authors with unique instructions and clear deadlines
  • Create specifications for purchases like photography or illustration
  • Develop detailed estimates and schedules and submit to authors for approval
  • Manage RFQs to multiple vendors to get the best bids
  • Post and discuss each chapter draft, photo, and layout design with staff and authors
  • Track costs to meet specific budget requirements

 

Infowit Creative Manager learns your business and keeps your business on track to ensure you deliver on time, under budget and maintain your customer's satisfaction.
