Montpellier, France – Aquafadas, innovative developer of digital publishing solutions and creative software for HTML5 creation, has just inked a new deal with German based zweipunktnull GmbH to tackle the ever-changing landscape of the digital book market. With a focus mainly on children’s books and instructional texts for schools, the two companies look towards the future to address specific needs in the rapidly evolving sectors. zweipunktnull GmbH., an expert digital publishing company, focuses on the needs of media and large companies as well as public and governmental institutions in the era of digital, tablet, and mobile publishing.
“zweipunktnull has seen in many of its tablet publishing projects that companies seek for an open, robust and tightly integrated product platform when it comes to mobile publishing apps,” says Dr. Martina Zowack, media liaison for the digital publisher. “Having full control over the whole production process, media distribution and commercial aspects across several hardware, software and e-commerce platforms is a clear demand by many media and corporate customers. Moreover, the book publishing industry is a fast-moving segment within this area, and professionals are always on the lookout for solutions that address their specific needs. Aquafadas’ range of software products, apps and services covers these requirements perfectly.”
When it comes to eMags and digital publishing, Aquafadas has proven itself as a key player in the industry. With the help of its technology, zweipunktnull will take on the German interactive book market, offering cutting-edge services. Aquafadas Digital Publishing System is an evolving and flexible solution, from automatic workflow and custom-designed digital publication to ready-to-use app templates and a Software Development Kit (SDK) to create specific apps. That flexibility is essential for zweipunktnull to help publishers reach their goals. Dr. Martina Zowack, media liaison for the digital publisher, explains, “The Aquafadas licensing schema will help customers better understand and plan their costing structure when it comes to tablet and mobile publishing. They can have unparalleled freedom when licensing the Aquafadas app SDK.”
