TechBooks Forms TechBooks Financial, Will Service Financial Printers
Press release from the issuing company
Fairfax, Va., TechBooks today announced the formation of a new business unit, TechBooks Financial, to offer composition and data conversion services to the financial printing community. This new business unit is the result of TechBooks' recent acquisition of Composition Services Group (CSG), a Boston-based corporation specializing in composition deliverables and related services for the financial printing industry.
"TechBooks Financial will be a powerful tool for financial printers, offering them an extensive off-shore workforce and experienced domestic account management," said Rakesh Gupta, TechBooks chairman and founder. "Financial printers can use our services to expand their offerings and to sell a wider range of services to their clients."
Mark Witman, TechBooks' senior vice president of business development and a 24-year printing and publishing veteran, was selected to lead the Boston-based operation of TechBooks Financial.
"The demands of the financial services market require financial printers to maintain significant typesetting capacity on call at all times to meet unpredictable production requests and deadlines," says Witman. "In addition to meeting the production challenges of this industry, the financial printer is also charged with moving to an XML workflow," he adds.
TechBooks' proven track record with building XML workflows will prove invaluable for the financial printer as they transition to this new workflow. TechBooks Financial offering includes QuarkXPress composition, EDGAR, HTML, Writebacks, and Enhanced PDF deliverables.
