Euromoney Institutional Investor Triumphs with TruEdit

Euromoney Institutional Investor (EII) was looking to increase operational efficiency and streamline the production process for their publications: Institutional Investor and Alpha. After an internal assessment, the company decided to move from their legacy system to MEI’s TruEdit. We sat down with Business Applications Analyst, Valerie Crowley, to discuss how the new system is improving the way EII works.

What was the motivation to change your content management system?

When I joined EII a couple years ago, the first thing I did was a full audit of current applications and systems. My philosophy is: tell me what you are looking to accomplish and I will advise you on the best way to get there, so I wanted to be sure we were working as efficiently as possible. It’s all about working better; smarter. Over the course of the audit, I discovered that the content system in place was not the best system to meet our needs.  Features were under-utilized or unnecessary, the system was overly complicated, and it required a significant effort in time and IT resources to maintain.  After doing some research and working with MEI, it was determined that TruEdit could more fully support our goals to improve contributor processes, reduce our server imprint, and increase efficiency.

How did you select TruEdit?

We needed a system that supported our current workflow, and improved it. A system that could support the way our editorial and creative teams work, enhance current processes, and reduce the organizational resources required to maintain the system. The team was seeking a system that simplified the process and was user friendly. At the end of my research, TruEdit was a no-brainer. It’s a better system, at a more reasonable price, and met much of our criteria.

TruAuthor, the native TruEdit HTML authoring module, was a key factor that allowed us to change the ways in which remote workers deliver content. Being able to produce web, mobile and print content from a web browser, anywhere, is a huge benefit, as we have staff and freelance writers working across continents. The integration with InDesign and InCopy allows our teams to continue using their favorite tools within the TruEdit workflow. Real-time updates, version control, and the project management tools – such as status rights for all content – are important features that support our objectives. The TruEdit platform comes with data backup and recovery, which reduced the expense and resource required under our legacy system. The ability to work directly with the TruEdit development and support staff , rather than a 3rd party re-seller, has been a huge benefit. TruEdit represented a system that we could fully utilize, and has improved production operations. It was an easy decision.

What was the conversion process like? How was training and implementation?

Implementation has been very smooth, with a minimal learning curve. TruEdit is very process-driven. Workflow is simplified and logical. We have found it very easy to use. In fact, just last week, I needed to add a couple new users to the system. In no time they were up and running, and have been working in the system without issue ever since.

How has TruEdit changed the way you work? What have been the outcomes?

It has saved us time and money- it doesn’t require the same level of internal or external service and support as our legacy system.  Our legacy system required us to backup all our data, and maintain the servers ourselves.  Additionally, we required a software service agreement to support our legacy system. It was a huge drain on staff and budget resources. Now data backup and recovery is maintained through MEI and TruEdit. Moving to TruEdit reduced our server imprint by 75%, and significantly reduced support expenses.

Less time is spent on training, trouble-shooting, or maintaining our content management system. As a result, our Technology Department is now able to focus on other projects. The Editorial and Creative Teams are much happier with TruEdit, which in turn has made them more productive. The gain in efficiency and productivity, means more time can be dedicated to brand development. The big take-away has been that TruEdit better suits our needs and has improved the way we work.

Phase two of implementation is incorporating TruAuthor into our workflow. The value for us has been in streamlining the system and process, so I’m anxious to see what happens after we add this piece. The TruAuthor implementation into the workflow will occur this month (October).

You mentioned implementing TruAuthor, how do you envision that impacting your workflow?

We are really excited about adding TruAuthor to our process. It’s a great way for remote users to enter content. Being able to log in from anywhere on any web browser will be immensely helpful for our freelance and staff writers.  This was one of the big selling points when we were considering TruEdit, as it represents a new, better way for remote workers to deliver content.

Right now, our freelance writers are required to maintain subscriptions to Adobe Creative Suite, in order to submit copy. With the adoption of TruAuthor, they will be able to log into TruEdit, and submit content directly.  The VPN access will also be unnecessary, eliminating the obstacles remote workers and IT are currently challenged by.

The pressure is not only to provide a steady stream of content, but also to be the first to tell the story. With TruEdit we are working better and smarter, to be everywhere our audience is. TruAuthor will allow us to work web-first, and I believe it will give us a competitive edge on breaking news stories.

Network Media Partners Shares Insight into Digital and Print Magazine Production

Above photo by Matthew Rakola

Network Media Partners, LLC is a business services firm for associations, specializing in: customized media sales, design, event planning and management, and marketing services. For more than 30 years, Network Media Partners has provided award winning design services. We sat down with Vice President of Creative Strategy, Jen Smith, to discuss their process for efficiently producing digital and print magazines.

Can you provide an overview of Network Media Partners (Network), and your publication design work? Certainly. Network works exclusively with associations. Our services include: advertising and integrated media sales, publication design, and marketing and event management services. We work with local, regional, national, and global clients. Most recently, we partnered with global organization MCI to become part of MCI USA. This partnership increased our capacity to meet clients’ growing sales, event, and publishing needs. Our design services are almost exclusively publication design. We do a lot of re-designs and new publication launches.

Right now we regularly produce nine magazines, in addition to the clients we provide initial set-up support and design for. We work in partnership with our association clients, from the early stages of content planning. Network is part of the content strategy discussions for the magazine, and helps develop the right content strategy for the magazine, be it an app or print media. The challenge for associations is how to produce content for all platforms, within a restricted budget. Our work is focused on multi-channel delivery, so we are thinking about visual communications for print and digital simultaneously. We are looking for opportunities to maximize all assets across platforms.

Are your clients focused on print or digital? There has been a big evolution for digital over the last four years. As an industry the idea that everything could be digital seemed really enticing, especially to our client base of associations. Now you are seeing a boomerang. The reality is that you need to be able to provide print and digital components. The questions are: where does your audience expect to find you, and how often do you need to be in front of them? We have one client that launched a magazine as digital-only, then moved to print. They discovered the print magazine was more successful in readership and revenue (i.e. ad sales). For many, the right strategy now is a strong print component with a strong digital component.

What is your workflow strategy? Each client has a different workflow, but from the beginning we are thinking about print and digital, and are involved in early content planning meetings. By being involved early in the process, we are able to identify opportunities to expanded on content from print to digital. For example, if we learn a photographer is being sent out to cover a story, we may ask for video, which we can use in the digital version. This gives digital consumers a little something extra, which is the expectation.

Templates are very important to efficiently produce content. There are certain rules to build consistency for a magazine, but there is also room for creativity. We use style sheets, grids, and grid options based on the components of the articles, any standing content or page elements.

Our process is to work through all the milestones of the print schedule, then while the issue is at the printer, the digital version is produced. TruEdit’s TruAuthor HTML content authoring component has been very instrumental in quickly producing responsively designed HTML content that can be plugged into the app. This allows us to easily have print and digital go live at the same time.

Explain the major difference in managing content for print and digital? This is something we consider a lot. It’s really about using the same content asset, but applying a different approach to suit the medium. The designer will use the same art and give it the same feel, but the presentation will be different. We are designing content for the way it is consumed. With a mobile layout, it’s much more templated so the text is easy to read. The smaller the screen, the more focus is placed on text.

Network’s publication design in both print and digital formats have won numerous awards, including Folio: Eddie and Ozzie Awards, The Apex Awards, and Association Media & Publishing Excel Awards. They are based in Hunt Valley, Maryland. For more information on Network Media Partners, please visit their website. www.networkmediapartners.com

 

Brobel Design Relies on TruEdit to Create 88 Issues of Kids Discover Magazine in Less Than 10 Months

For over 25 years, the Kids Discover team of talented writers, designers, artists, and industry experts has been publishing award-winning educational reading materials for kids, including the print version of Kids Discover Magazine.

In 2016, Kids Discover decided to modernize their magazine archive to create relevant experiences that would increase engagement. Between 1991 and 2014, they had published 175 issues with production time averaging almost four months per 20-page issue. By partnering with Brobel, they hoped to create 88 issues in less than 10 months. It was a huge challenge, as it meant that over 1,000 pages would be in production at all times, with additions and corrections coming from many contributors at once.

Brobel’s Lead Designer and co-owner Ian Brown knew that, in order to deliver high-quality, error-free publications, his team would need an exceptionally smooth workflow that allowed for real-time content updates. They would also need a way to monitor progress and manage content and collaboration within a single system that worked with existing creative production tools like Adobe InDesign and InCopy.

He found the solution he was looking for in MEI’s TruEdit. The cloud-based solution could support concurrent web, mobile, and print content production from any web browser. It could integrate with InDesign, InCopy, and Microsoft Word, and it supported real-time updates, version control, and project management tools.

“We were excited to help Kids Discover take advantage of existing content, re-envision it, and make it accessible in print, mobile, web, and different languages to help kids learn,” says Brown. “But the aggressive 10-month timeline required us to work with a large geographically dispersed team that would have to track multiple issues and versions at once. And it would be prone to error when transferring so many large files. That’s when we knew we needed TruEdit to help centrally manage each project and keep content flowing.”

 

A Thing or Two About Supporting a Content Project or Two

I’ve been working for MEI on the Customer Success team for approximately six years. My primary responsibility is to provide software training and support for our customers using TruEdit and the Twixl Publisher and Adobe Experience Manager Mobile app building platforms. The range and depth of knowledge that is required to stay on top of responsive content authoring and these mobile app platforms can be astounding. My challenge is to communicate detailed and complex software configurations, techniques and best practices in a clear and cogent format for experienced and new users. My typical day includes leading remote training sessions, calls with clients to work through issues ranging from problems with an image in an InDesign file to techniques for displaying fonts on an HTML page, to providing assistance with building and submitting applications to iTunes and Google Play.

My role here at MEI requires that a majority of my time is spent working and interacting with clients. This gives me a unique insight into their challenges when working on their publishing projects. I have built great working relationships during the many hours of training, troubleshooting and just shooting the breeze. I enjoy this part of my job and I think the clients do too. One of my clients once sent me a “Sweet and Salty” gift basket as a thank you, which I think was meant as a comment on my patient but thorough training style. Another client based in Utah was so gracious as to track down a local pizzeria and send me a surprise pizza lunch to the office. I like pepperoni pizza by the way – for future reference.

I’ve trained hundreds of people across dozens of companies. I’ve answered hundreds of support questions and I have reviewed even more. Through all of that, I’ve discovered that the biggest challenges I encounter with clients are not necessarily about technical skills or software – rather it is providing assistance on the transition from traditional publishing to digital publishing. Here are a few pointers that I always share:

Mobile must be part of the strategy

Mobile devices reach into every corner of home and business on the planet. We willingly bring them along with us on our daily routines and more often than not these devices consume a great deal of time in our daily routine. According to studies, the average U.S. consumers now spends up to 5 hours per day on their mobile devices — that’s 35 hours a week, which is just shy of a typical 40-hour workweek! It’s critical for a publisher to adapt a mobile and content strategy that enables them to create, update and deliver mobile-friendly content.

Don’t treat your mobile content initiatives as an afterthought

One of the first hurdles is the process for transitioning content intended for print production by massaging it into a format that is optimized for a tablet, phone, or a website. Treating your digital “mobile” friendly content as an afterthought in your print workflow doesn’t work. Stop thinking about how to make a double page spread look good on a phone and start thinking about how the elements can fit together on mobile screens to best convey the story. It does not mean that you stop designing pages, it just means you don’t need to rely on a print layout as your starting point.

Create your content in a malleable way from the very beginning

Create your content in an HTML format that is flexible and responsive so that it can be easily adapted for any and all devices as well as for print output. Eliminate the need to create multiple layouts to address various tablet sizes, phone sizes, print pages and web content. If you can produce content that is in a format that is responsive, the time saved by not having to re-create the same content can be applied in far more creative ways. You can create the content once and output to several channels without the need to redesign or layout the content in numerous ways. My value to the MEI clients is based on making them more efficient and focused on the creative and substantive aspects of content creation and design – not manually re-formatting the same content for different output channels.

Don’t abandon the most critical aspects of your traditional workflow process

A content creation process that allows people to work independently or together as a team in order to leverage the many skills and tasks needed to produce great content and be efficient are keys to success. Allowing teams to monitor and control different aspects of a project is critical in a multi-channel production process.

You don’t need give up those tried and true workflow steps that have worked well for your team in your current workflow. Bring those same controls to your digital workflow using a tool like TruEdit.

Every day, digital content creation is changing and I strive to stay on top of best practices.

TruEdit and Twixl Power New NEA Today Magazine App

National Education Association and Network Media Partners Launch New NEA Today Magazine Mobile App—with Workflow Powered by MEI’s TruEdit and Twixl Publisher

The National Education Association (NEA), the nation’s largest professional employee organization, is committed to advancing the cause of public education. NEA members work at every level of education—from pre-school to university graduate programs. The Association has affiliates in every state and in more than 14,000 communities nationwide.

This spring, NEA debuted a new version of the NEA Today magazine app, which is now available to the organization’s 3 million members. This launch represents a major accomplishment, made possible by the Network Media Partners design team, and the TruEdit HTML content creation and Twixl Publisher mobile app platforms.

“NEA wanted to increase advocacy and engagement among our members, and we also wanted to reach new pro-public education audiences by expanding our digital footprint into the Apple and Android marketplaces,” says Earline Spence, who led the project from concept to delivery.

The original application was produced using Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite (DPS). That version lacked a number of components that NEA had envisioned, and with fewer than 1,000 downloads during the first 18 months of the apps existence, the project was minimally successful.

“Our annual survey readership results found that very few NEA members realized that an app version of the flagship magazine existed,” Spence says. “The need for a new approach was clear, so we launched an extensive RFP process, during which we selected Network Media Partners for development of the new application, and Weber Shandwick to build a cohesive marketing strategy.”

To boost results, Network created a new content strategy with NEA, and started work on a redesign of the NEA Today app using Twixl Publisher. Network also partnered with Managing Editor Inc. (MEI), provider of TruEdit and North American reseller and support partner for Twixl Publisher. MEI worked with Network to integrate TruEdit and Twixl Publisher to enable Network to develop and implement the new NEA Today app. The results have been exceptional, and more than 1,800 downloads occurred during the first 3 months alone.

“The new app is more intuitive, and we’ve been able to integrate content from many NEA Today vehicles—not just the print magazines. The redesigned app also includes a carousel on the home screen which allows us to continuously publish fresh content on a weekly schedule,” says Spence.

There have been additional benefits to working with Network and for using Twixl Publisher, Spence continues. “Network has been an incredible partner throughout the development process. They came to the table with fresh ideas and provided excellent support and expertise in a way that made things very easy on the client side,” she says.

“Plus, our costs are down 80 percent. The transition from Adobe DPS to Twixl Publisher with Network as partner has been a seamless, win-win situation.”

Jen Smith, vice president of creative strategy for Network Media Partners, cites her team’s intentional design process as key to the project’s success. “The technology allows us to publish continuously and integrate three NEA Today titles and audiences,” she says. “Also, we’ve built content that is specific to each device, so it’s pixel-perfect for iPads and responsive for smartphones.”

With the new digital app up and running, NEA has begun to use it for events, like the organization’s annual conference. Plans for an NEA podcast are underway, and the association will publish digital magazines more frequently, offering custom versions for various NEA audiences, including students studying to become educators, new K-12 teachers, and higher education professionals.

To ensure digital reader adoption rates continue to grow, NEA will continue to enhance the magazine app.

“Network’s creative design and app-building expertise, coupled with the power of the TruEdit and Twixl Publisher platforms, has drastically enhanced NEA members’ digital experience,” says Spence. “We are confident that Network will continue to help us deliver quality digital products to educators in the months and years ahead.”

From Letterpress To CSS in Only 22 Years

Kicking and Screaming

I was dragged from the print world into the digital world kicking and screaming. Phones? I’d still have a rotary if I could. Books? I like the paper kind. Video games? I’ve not touched one since our Intellivision died back in the mid 80’s. Nostalgic? Maybe just a little bit.

I was a proud print designer and I had a nice little niche in my professional career. I was the template master. I loved it. I was good at it. I was considered a goddess in certain circles. But in digital publishing, where everything seemed more fluid, more transitory and temporary, was there really a need for exacting consistency? Would InDesign still be relevant in a few years? How would evolving content and design, created for a society on the move, ever be templatized? It kept me up at night.

Baby Steps

I made the jump from print design to digital/mobile design in 2011. I knew that if I wanted to grow my career, I’d have to let go—­or at least loosen my grip—of my singular love of print design. I wasn’t excited about it.

I started with baby steps. I would make prototype comps in InDesign and then hand them over to a web designer to recreate in Dreamweaver/HTML. From this I learned two very important things. 1) pixel perfect design was not possible and 2) our web designer could be bought off with Mountain Dew. At some point I got a hold of some HTML articles for an iPad publication that we were working on and I started pulling them apart to see how it all worked.

Be Still My Heart

At first, I couldn’t really figure out the logic. Why does this code mean that? How can I design with only a few H tags? Then I found out about cascading style sheets. Low and behold, I found something in that CSS file that made my heart skip a beat—patterns and rules.

Patterns of indents, brackets, and codes controlled by rules that were documented and not up for interpretation. Everything that I had done since my 10th grade journalism class had prepared me for this.

Paragraph styles, nested styles, based on styles, object styles etc. It was all basically there in this lovely little CSS file that was magically controlling everything else. I could plan ahead for variations. I could combine style instructions into groups to practically automate the design process. I could make global changes without picking through dozens of files. I found order, consistency, and efficiencies that ultimately gave me more time to get creative.

You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby

Over the last year, I’ve spent more time working in HTML than I have in InDesign and I’m actually happy about it. I’m still a beginner and I’m constantly breaking things but that’s how I learn. I never would have believed that I, the letterpress girl from 90s would find a comfortable spot in this digital world. But here I am, doing what I do best, just in another language—HTML—and it only took me about 22 years.

3 Ways to Future-Proof Your Technology Investments

Businesses today are rapidly integrating technology into their operations, and it’s easy to get trapped into making purchases prematurely or to miss opportunities. If you start with the right people, streamlined processes, executive support, and the right integration partner, you are on the right track. The key to staying ahead of the competition is to be proactive, not reactive, in acquiring technology that facilitates multichannel customer engagement.

Customers choose how and when to engage, meaning it’s important for you to be present everywhere they are. To future-proof your business, you must fully embrace this multichannel approach, or risk losing your customer’s attention. Aligning the ability to distribute to multiple channels, and the flexibility to adapt to changes in the industry is vitally important.

The top considerations organizations have when it comes to selecting tech solutions include:

  • Scalability: Operational and production demands within organizations ebb and flow and tech solutions should be able to withstand it.
  • Complexity: A feature packed initial implementation deployed to a large number of users cross-functionally can spell disaster for your solution and lead to project failure. Instead, focus on the most important features and requirements and have more frequent release cycles as you expand across functional teams and regions. Cloud-based solutions typically support agile methodologies and configurations in order to provide enhanced functionality on an ongoing basis.
  • ROI: Stakeholders want to ensure they’re getting what they pay for, that the results are consistent, and that solutions scale with growth and integrate seamlessly with existing systems and processes. Gartner recommends CIOs consider a 5-year ROI on technology investments.

To keep up with technology advancements, companies regularly need to undergo strategic technology audits. According to the 2016 Trends vs. Technologies Report (created by Capita Tech Systems, in partnership with Cisco), 78% of decision makers across all industries agree that keeping up with tech trends is vital or important, and 86% agree that it gives their business competitive advantage. It’s more important now than ever for tech producers to ensure their products and applications are adaptive, and for business partners to be selective with their purchasing decisions. Doing so prevents complete system overhauls and repeated new implementations from becoming regular occurrences.

So how, exactly, does one go about “future-proofing” investments in tech, when there’s no certainty what the future holds? Keeping these three easy concepts in mind can help: Simplify, Embrace, Adapt.

1) Simplify by streamlining management of your current assets. It’s better to focus your efforts on developing a single quality solution, than to over-complicate with multiple systems that require frequent turnover.

2) Embrace change and growth as constants. This mindset is important for the successful longevity of your tech-based product, application, or investment. Ensuring that the architecture of your program or application is flexible and has the capability to adapt to changes or integrate with multiple systems will keep your business competitive.

3) Adapt the architecture of your product, application, or technology to be flexible and designed for growth. Flexible metadata and asset hierarchies, combined with rapid search functionality and collaboration features keeps projects flowing. Making your system architecture extensible enables alternative configurations that can undergo incremental changes with time. This ensures that your technology evolves and scales with your growth.

MEI’s TruEdit content management solution enables multichannel publishing by delivering content to all platforms—mobile, web, print, and social channels—for increased engagement opportunities. TruEdit enables you to create content once, publish to anywhere, and accomplish this at global scale. It works with what content you already have, and integrates seamlessly with the apps you already use, to streamline and simplify your workflow, to save valuable time and resources.

Print vs. Digital: Finding the Right Balance for Associations

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the AM&P NYC breakfast education seminar on April 7th  to hear about the challenges association publishing execs must consider to strike the right media mix between digital and print for their audiences. Michel Winkelman of Leverage Media moderated the seminar which featured Paul Tarricone, Editor and Publisher of Lighting Design + Application (LD+A) and James G. Elliott, President of James G. Elliott Company. Here are some of the insights they shared.

James Elliott emphasized that every media tool has a different purpose and requires research to understand the right mix. Look at your own association’s audience preferences and review what your competitors are doing.

Magazines are not dead and digital is not a panacea: digital magazines are viewed differently by ad agencies than print because of the different analytics used, so they may not be the most productive revenue source for your particular association.

LD+A is the flagship publication for the 8,000-member Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, publishing 13 magazines per year with digital magazine access provided to members-only via a “flip-page” replica. Paul Terricone said their research shows that members are “very loyal” to the print publication particularly with its design focus and older demographics.

LD+A embarked on a major e-newsletter program to increase their readership to new audiences and provide a vehicle for advertisers who were interested in more than digital banner ads. They are now producing 16 themed e-newsletters, three of which are tied to major industry events as well as advertising sponsored, on-demand video newsletters. Because the audiences are different, they are able to reuse content produced for the magazines in the e-newsletter, which helps keep their costs low.  The e-newsletters are being sent to a list of 40,000. Results have been impressive with an average 25% open rate and steady demand by advertisers. These programs have added additional revenue streams while introducing their content to new audiences.

The question to move to digital needs to be weighed by considering the demographic mix and reading habits of your primary audience while also considering your associations goals such as expanding circulation or recruiting new members. Bottom line: conduct research and use the tools that best fit the job—whether it is to increase readership, capitalize on new revenue opportunities or both!
