Cadmus Launches ArticleWorks Content on Demand Service
Press release from the issuing company
RICHMOND, Va., July 11 -- Cadmus Communications Corporation, a leading provider of publisher services, today announced that it has launched ArticleWorks(SM), a comprehensive content delivery and digital rights management system that enables publishers and other content providers to deliver content on demand in either printed or secure electronic formats.
The ArticleWorks system includes two content delivery services:
RapidCopy(SM) is a turnkey solution for ordering, tracking and delivering single or multiple copies of the print version of a document. RapidCopy offers a range of features including e-commerce and a robust service module with extensive reporting features.
RapidRights(SM) is a user-friendly application for securing a document with multiple options for accessing the content. RapidRights enables publishers to optimize the value of their content by mitigating unauthorized distribution. RapidRights encrypts and locks a PDF file to a user's computer and requires no special readers, plug-ins or additional software.
ArticleWorks allows publishers to cost effectively deliver content in print format with single-copy order quantities and/or in a digital format that is secure from unauthorized distribution and use. The system offers publishers the potential to increase revenue from the sale of articles individually or in customized collections without incurring expensive inventory or service costs. The tracking and delivery system provides complete end-to-end visibility and reporting on the content fulfillment process.
"ArticleWorks is the latest in a series of technology products and services that Cadmus has released to support publishers in the automation of the publishing process," said Hai Tran, Senior Vice President of Technology & Strategic Development. "In addition to developing technology to facilitate the processing of content, Cadmus is focused on developing services that allow our customers to cultivate new sources of revenue from their content."
"As publishers look to leverage and optimize the value of their content, many are looking for solutions that will reduce costs and generate revenue," said Steve Hare, President of Cadmus' Publisher Services Group. "We believe that our new ArticleWorks system can help publishers achieve those objectives with an innovative and turnkey offering that is both flexible and user- friendly. We have already validated the value proposition of ArticleWorks with customers like EDGAR Online and MarketResearch.com. These customers are realizing the benefits of a comprehensive solution that helps them generate incremental revenue from their publishing assets."
