Supporting Small- and Medium-Sized Publishers

Margins are tight in the publishing industry, which forces an eye to costs in the production phase. Different stages of business growth allow the hiring of employees for every aspect of production and marketing. The influx of work is never consistent creating overworked periods, while changes in deadlines can create an impossible completion task. As an alternative to hiring full-time staff or during periods of high-volume workload it is often more cost efficient to outsource operations.
