Cloud-Hosted Proofs

C&M’s new launch, emXPERT, a signature author proofing and editing solution helps authors/editors view their proof in a browser and edit the underlying HTML content in WYSIWYG. The editing environment is elegantly designed, so that the author can edit the content as simply as they edit a standard Word document without realizing they are editing the XML content sans complex tags. No prior knowledge of XML is required for the user to work on this platform.

This workflow saves a significant amount of time for the publishers and typesetters since the authors edit the XML document directly. There is no need to transfer PDF annotations manually. The author’s edits are saved in a database and the editor/publisher has full rights to accept or reject the changes made by the author or make additional edits, if required.

emXPERT’s editing environment is very simple but packed with loads of attractive features that are user-friendly and are likely to delight authors/editors.
