We're happy to have a variety of excellent companies participating in Digital Book World 2018 and having a presence within the revamped DBW 2018 Exhibit Hall. One of those is Casemate Group.
I have had a chance to learn about Casemate's interesting new Minerva platform, which they will be rolling out as part of Digital Book World 2018.
The platform saves publishers money through a variety of automation and is well worth checking out. The information about the offering is below, and make sure to visit Casemate at booth #503 during Digital Book World 2018 in just a few short weeks!
