Quark announced today that in the third quarter of 2011 the company grew its dynamic enterprise publishing business by over 30 percent year-over-year. The growth is attributed to new clients in the manufacturing, financial services, governmental, and publishing industries, as well as to the debut of Quark App StudioTM, a key component of Quark’s digital publishing solution for both enterprise and desktop publishers.
During the third quarter Quark made significant strides in moving the digital publishing industry forward by bringing to market Quark App Studio. In conjunction with QuarkXPress® 9.1 and Quark Publishing System® 9.1, Quark App Studio enables digital publishing to the iPad and other digital formats without requiring development skills. Quark’s cost-effective and familiar approach to digital publishing is ideal for small and large organizations alike. In addition to numerous apps that large enterprises have created for internal sales enablement, a number of iPad apps created with Quark technology are already available in the iTunes store, some of which are on display in Quark’s App Showcase: http://www.quark.com/Products/AppStudio/App_Showcase.aspx.
The quarter also saw new clients turn to Quark to solve communications challenges related to automating the creation and delivery of content across print, Web, and digital channels. Two of the world’s largest financial services organizations have chosen Quark dynamic publishing technology, as have governmental agencies such as Lackland Air Force Base and United States Southern Command, manufacturing leaders such as Global Foundries, and publishers including World Book, Pearson and Trib Total Media.
Looking ahead, Quark expects sustained or increased growth in enterprise dynamic publishing across its target industries as well as significant growth in digital publishing. Publishers, creative professionals, and communications teams can expect Quark to continue to expand the capabilities of Quark App Studio, including support for iOS 5 this year and a broader range of digital devices in 2012.
