Collaborative on-screen proofing tool launches
Cambridge Publishing Solutions launch their new Futureproofs platform on 8 October 2014 at the Frankfurt Book Fair, helping publishers to create quality books more cheaply and quickly.
Futureproofs is an innovative new browser-based platform that addresses many problems that editors, proofreaders and authors experience when working on book proofs. It provides three key advantages over the methods currently available to publishing teams.
- Easy yet precise on-screen markup enables proofreaders and authors to send accurate feedback more quickly and easily.
- Real-time collaboration reduces the time taken to raise and resolve queries, and hence reduces the time projects spend in proof.
- Automated chasing and reporting reduce the time spent on admin by the team, and increase their ability to find and use data about project performance.
During the Frankfurt Book Fair (8–12 October 2014), CPS will be demonstrating this exciting new platform on their stand in Hall 4.0, stand A10. Contact them for an appointment (info@WeAreFutureproofs.com).
CPS is also running a competition on their stand to find “The Fastest Editor In Frankfurt”, with exciting prizes including copies of Judith Butcher’s classic Copy-editing and Michael Bhaskar’s insightful The Content Machine (all prizes kindly donated by their publishers). All comers are invited to try their hands at finding all the issues in the sample page as fast as they can.
John Pettigrew, CEO and Founder of the company, said, “Being able to offer editors and their managers a tool that will genuinely help them in their day-to-day jobs is very exciting, and the culmination of nearly two years of effort.”
