FREMONT, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2005
RealRead Inc., announced the web publishing industryÂs lowest cost solution for publishing industrial catalogs on the Internet. Industrial organizations with large scale print catalogs, manuals and reference materials, often thousands or tens of thousands of pages, can publish quickly and cost-effectively to the web while maintaining the look and feel of their original catalogs. Whether organizations manage web publication in-house or use a third-party, RealRead Industrial Web Publishing allows them to leverage their existing investment in print-ready materials without resorting to costly and time consuming re-design for publishing the same materials on the Internet.
RealRead complements an organizationÂs existing publishing workflow, converting print-ready Adobe Acrobat PDF files into a quick-viewing eBook, or eCatalog format that dramatically reduces production time to several hours rather than several weeks. For example, Semix, Inc. Â a supplier of semiconductor wafer fabrication equipment, has converted dozens of documents which average from 500 to over 1,000 pages. Another RealRead customer, NetMotion, a specialty components supplier for equipment manufacturers, uses a RealRead eCatalog on its website that is identical with its printed direct mail catalog, eliminating confusion for customers using both sources for placing orders.
ÂRealRead allowed us to publish our 500 page manuals in the time it would have taken us to explain the project to a third-party web designer,Â said Guy Mendez, Field Service Manager of Semix, Inc. ÂWith our manual in RealRead format on the Internet, our customers now have immediate access to the most current information and spend much less time searching and downloading. Semix used RealRead to convert the print-ready PDF version of our manual into a quick viewing, easy to search manual that keeps our engineers and our customers Âon the same pageÂ since they are always viewing the identical source material.Â
RealRead formatted documents provide customers the best web browsing experience with large documents and catalogs by eliminating long waits for downloads, burdensome software installations and frozen browsers.
ÂEven though our customers have broadband Internet, most large, technical documents on the web are difficult if not impossible to view,Â said Raman Ganapahti, Sales Manager, NetMotion. ÂSince NetMotion converted its manual to a RealRead formatted eCatalog, our customers access the information they need more quickly, which improves sales and decreases inaccurate orders and customer service calls.Â
