Edita Publishing to use Neo Books by Anygraaf

Edita Publishing Oy has chosen to implement Anygraaf's Neo Books and Project Management systems. Edita will be using Neo Books for the planning and monitoring of the editorial work for schoolbooks. Edita's organizational diversity and extensive book publishing history are seen as an excellent match for Anygraaf's product offerings.

Anygraaf Neo

Neo is a new generation of Anygraaf system providing views of all editorial work as well as tools for planning an implementation of publications. Neo is the framework for the system, which is managed and administered via the editorial system; it includes documents & content, delivery, resources, events calendars, ideas, plans and design projects.

Anygraaf's Neo Books provides a content management system designed specifically for book publishers.

Neo Books and Project Management

Publications which are currently being worked upon are managed through a graphical project calendar. The various steps of publication are easy to schedule. The calendar displays, via the relevant editor, the current books which are presently in progress; this list can include one or multiple titles. The calendar shows the relevant deadlines for each publication, such as due dates for the script, the lay-out, originals to go to press and return of final publication from the press. An alarm will be triggered if the book project does not proceed as desired. The graphical project calendar provides a clear overview of work-in-progress at a glance.

Information related to publications (e.g., ISBN, format, volumes, library classification, etc.) are always easy to find. A client-specific, tailor-made view of the required data is provided to all individuals searching for information. Reports and summaries can be created from the system, either manually or automatically. For example, a printing work order can easily be created from information that has been previously saved. The alarms related to the stages of publication can be sent to any group members via e-mail or text messages.

The transparency of a project will increase within the organization and necessary information about new publication is easy to share with the right people.

The project calendar also includes information from human resources via Anygraaf's Shift program. Shift includes information about weekends, holidays and, if desired, individual schedules including vacations and alternate work schedules. Freelance resources can also be managed in Neo Books via Shift. Shift provides easy resource management via a simple-to-use browser interface.

Once the information from Shift is imported into Neo's project calendar, the project can go "live". Resources can be allocated to publications and users receive immediate feedback on whether the planned schedule is feasible. Should schedules need to be changed, Shift gives Neo a clear warning and work can be rescheduled.

Subsequent publications in a series are easy to schedule using previously planned publications; everything, including the work group can be copies into the desired time period for the next release. Neo Books reviews all of the schedules and flags any potential conflicts or issues within timetable.
