Infogrid Pacific-The Science of Information

Production Services

Production: Remote support: Consultancy

Overview

Infogrid Pacific offer premium digitization services to publishers and other organizations who have valuable content that must, or should, exist in digital form. We primarily service publishers who have licensed our software solutions.

Pricing Model

We quote on a page by page basis for every book, without exception. Our experience shows this approach consistently delivers the lowest cost, while ensuring there are no pricing surprises.

Our content analysts will return the the pricing analysis for a book within one working day for standard books. Textbooks and complex trade books, catalogues or reference work will take longer and you will be notified.

Production Method

We do all production work on IGP:Digital Publisher using IGP:FoundationXHTML. This means that not only are all e-book formats generated, but the XHTML is ready for the future. You can request all the formats available from IGP:Digital Publisher.

Our quality systems minimize time wastage and rework, and our highly trained production teams have been doing high-end digitization for over a decade. After 40,000,000+ pages of valuable content, we have learned a thing or two.

Formats

The core digitization is done in IGP:FoundationXHTML. Sounds proprietary? Its not. It's valid XHTML5 with CSS-3 which gives you the benefits of W3 standardization enhanced by a strictly controlled vocabulary. It's processor friendly and designed to deliver the maximum reusability with the lowest possible Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

You can request a number of formats. We currently deliver:

  • ePub2, ePub3
  • Mobipocket (Kindle), Mobi for Kindle Fire
  • Fixed layout for iPad and Kindle Fire
  • Online PDF, print PDF
  • Web Apps (AZARDI)
  • Static Sites

And a number of other special packages.

Want DocBook or some custom XML as the output?  Sorry, we do not offer these services. We work strictly with XHTML5.

Warranty

We have a standard 90 day "fix-it" warranty. We will keep your content in our Production Services Content Management System for 90 days, and fix any defects and regenerate and redeliver formats. Files are automatically deleted 90 days after first format delivery (or earlier if you request). 

We do not accept punitive payment terms as we engage with our customers on a partnership basis to consistently deliver the highest quality at the lowest possible price. All production is invoiced on shipping and required changes are made under the fix-it warranty.

Content Storage

We have an extended plan for ongoing editorial revisions.  If you give us permission to maintain your content in our Enterprise Content Management System (ECMS) we will provide editorial update services (errata, not new editions) while you have ongoing work-orders with us. We can also generate new formats if the requirement arises. There is no storage charge for content stored in our ECMS on an all care, no responsibility basis. All archived content is stored in two replicating storage zones using IGP:Repository 2.

    

STM and Code Listings

Scientific, Technical and Medical (STM) as XML - we will do equations as images but they will attract medium or complex page pricing.

We do not offer MathML or LaTeX equation production services at this time but will work with MathML if supplied.

Turn Around

Our production teams are usually working at full capacity. Generally a 300 page Trade & Retail book will be available between 10-20 business days. Both complexity and current work in hand may extend delivery, so you will need to keep us notified if you have any drop-dead dates. You will be notified of the anticipated delivery date, but quality always comes first. So when there is a delay we will always let you know. For urgency – see the Small Print.

The Small Print

PLEASE NOTE: Infogrid Pacific will not process any materials where the copyright is not held by the Company requesting the service.

Urgency: Everyone has a panic now and then. We maintain the capacity for a certain amount of urgent work on a first comes, first served basis. Urgent means three days turn-around (conditional)  for an average novel style book of 300 pages. Urgent pricing applies – just multiply everything by two.

Batching: Books are different in page extent, content and complexity. We make finished work available on a book by book basis. You can retrieve them by batches if that is how you want them.

Character based costing: We never do character count based costing. Please don't ask.
