Advanced Publishing Increases Productivity and Improves File Transmission Reliability with MassTransit
Press release from the issuing company
December 7, 2005 (Arlington, VA) – Group Logic, developer of best-selling network workflow software products, today announced that MassTransit is enabling Advanced Publishing, a digital delivery service provider, to increase user productivity and the reliability of its file transfers, resulting in significantly improved customer service.
“Advanced Publishing selected MassTransit because we needed a reliable alternative to FTP that could handle the volume and size of our files transfers. In the 10 months since we purchased MassTransit, it has exceeded all expectations,” said Trish Connolly, President and CEO, Advanced Publishing Corporation. “For the first time, we actually have visibility into the entire file transfer process, allowing us to know when an issue may arise which is critical in dealing with the tight delivery timeframes that we have for our customers.”
As the premier provider of digital edition and digital delivery solutions to the publishing world, Advanced Publishing uses an innovative suite of technologies to create and deliver online versions of print publications, without compromising quality. Advanced Publishing allows its customers to track reader activities on their Web sites with a simple, turn key service that provides real-time reports and up-to-the minute data, including click-throughs, visit duration and most viewed pages/read stories.
MassTransit is the only enterprise software solution proven to transform digital file transfers into strategic business processes, providing users with the flexibility to transfer their high volume, mission-critical digital files. Since implementing MassTransit, Advanced Publishing has seen a significant reduction in its number of incomplete file transmissions.
“Prior to MassTransit, we used FTP, which typically dropped between 20-25 percent of all the files,” said Ms. Connolly. “MassTransit was the only solution we found that could address our needs, while providing increased benefits. It is actually changing the way we manage our file transfers.”
Since MassTransit manages all aspects of file transfers, it ensures accountability and visibility throughout the process, alerting Advanced Publishing in real-time if it experiences any transfer issues. By eliminating the need for users to continuously monitor and follow up on lost file transfers, Advanced Publishing has seen an increase in its overall productivity. Now with MassTransit, Advanced Publishing can spend more time helping its customers determine how to best increase subscriptions and generate additional revenue versus tracking lost files.
“We can trust MassTransit to easily transfer our high volume, mission-critical digital files,” Ms. Connolly adds. “Without MassTransit, Advanced Publishing would not be able to deliver the level of service that our customers expect.”
