Xlibris: Revised Website Prepares E-publishing Company for Next Generation

Friday, April 06, 2001

Press release from the issuing company

April 4; Philadelphia, PA - Xlibris, the leading publishing services provider, has launched a complete overhaul of its Web site, including enhancements to its bookstore that generate faster searches, greater reporting capabilities and most dramatically, an automated online submissions process whereby authors never have to leave their desks to submit a manuscript for publication. The new technology infrastructure allows for entirely integrated publication and distribution systems. Xlibris can now manage publication information more effectively throughout the full book production process. Authors submit a manuscript to Xlibris completely over the Web, track their book's progress through the publication process, and upon book completion, view direct sales data in real time. "It's a huge step toward a completely integrated publishing platform. We can now accept and track every piece of a book's publication from receipt to sales and have our authors view this detailed book information at their own convenience at anytime," says Reginald Branham, Vice President of Information Technology. By using the simple five-step process for submitting manuscripts, the new site walks authors through the online order form and manuscript submission process and then validates these submissions before they ever reach the eyes of an Xlibris employee. This means faster processing. Xlibris continues to develop technology solutions for publishing with help from technology partners including New Media Architects, Ingram's Lightning Source, and Random House. Together, these efforts aim to create a cost-effective and robust platform that allows authors to upload, design, publish and distribute their books to readers anywhere, in any format they desire.
