The program’s assistance ranges from strategic planning to hands-on technical work at all stages of digital production, including workflow development, issue design and app deployment.

“We’re making it possible for any organization, no matter its size or specific needs, to implement the emerging standards for tablet publishing today,” MEI President and CEO Dennis McGuire said in a statement.
The company’s integration team analyzes a site’s existing workflow, evaluates its needs to get content into tablet formats and optimizes that process. It also can provide design services ranging from consulting to complete issue layout.
Depending on a publisher’s specific tablet needs, MEI also offers its expertise as the exclusive distributor of the vjoon K4 Cross-Media Publishing Platform in the Americas.
