A look at how XEditPro can benefit you!

Future-Proof Solution

What truly makes XEditPro a robust and future-proof solution is a combination of these; business rule engine that allows enhancements to be implemented easily, API-driven microservice architecture enabling integration with third-party entities, scalability using cloud load balancing techniques, advanced security using ACL and IP address based restriction, a modern UI/UX, automated workflow facilitating zero-lag fulfilment of tasks by resources (copyeditors/authors/typesetters/production editors), and the promise of an impeccable implementation.

Technology as a differentiator

In an extremely competitive publishing market, characterized by high capacity, low margins and limited time-to-market, publishers gain an imperative advantage by embracing new technologies that leverage AI and NLP. Pre-editing, Copyediting and Composition are some of the key areas where XEditPro embraces the technology of the future to provide unparalleled benefits today.
