Case Study

Automating a Comic Book Publisher’s Ebook Conversion

Hederis developed an automated conversion workflow to transform PDFs into fixed-layout EPUBs for a large comic book publisher. Our multi-phase solution enabled them to get up-and-running quickly, and included personalized needs assessment, custom code development, and one-on-one training with staff.
