How to Streamline Production in MS Word: Simplify Your Workflow and Save Money with Jouve Edit

JouveWhen: Wednesday, December 9, 2015
Time: 1:00—1:30 PM EST
Cost: Free

Microsoft Word is a powerful and critical piece of software. The only problem is that, as a standalone product, it is nearly impossible to rely on for an entire publishing workflow.

So in Digital Book World’s latest webinar, “How to Streamline Production in MS Word: Simplify Your Workflow and Save Money with Jouve Edit,” we will feature Bob Anderson, Product Management Director at Jouve North America, who will detail how publishers who work with Jouve Edit have been able to save 20 to 30 percent on their production cost by keeping their titles in Word for the entire production process.

Jouve Edit is a user-friendly plug-in for Microsoft Word that makes it easier for authors, editors, and copyeditors to work on their books and keep control of the editorial changes of their titles.

In this 30-minute webinar, Anderson will show you how to:

· Generate print PDF and ebook files directly from Microsoft Word
· Provide simple tools to authors, editors and copyeditors
· Easily apply structure in an automated way, extending the power of Microsoft Word

This free webinar is for managing editors, production managers and copyeditors who want to achieve a faster, more streamlined and lower cost production process.
