A New Way of Publishing
Are the pains of disconnected systems and team members slowing down your production cycles and creating costly mistakes? Bring together planning, production, proofing, collaboration, approvals and delivery into a cloud-based solution. Virtual Publisher allows publishers to control and manage all aspects of production from an easy-to-use interface, accessible from anywhere in the world.
Create a flat plan from an issue template and begin placing editorial and ad reservations right away. Ads submitted & approved in SendMyAd show up in the publication’s clipboard ready to be placed.
Once planning is completed, the flat plan is promoted to production, and hi-res editorial pages can be uploaded and preflighted to compliance with the publication’s specifications.
3. Approve & Deliver
Management can assign necessary tasks to team members for corrections. Approved ads, editorials and images are merged into final pages and delivered to your printer or outputted to digital editions.
Interactive Preflight Reports
Ensure pages meet criteria.
As materials are uploaded, Virtual Publisher rejects or flags any non-compliant materials. This ensures that the files submitted are ready to be published with no errors.
Photo Corrections & Placement

Mark up, send for corrections, approve revisions, and place imagery into your editorials with ease. An image’s corrections can be done simultaneously with its placement into an editorial’s layout, allowing different departments to complete their tasks quickly and without delay.
