Fabasoft Xpublisher maps Taskforce IT-Standards: Practical real-time use from day 1

Released on 23. May 2024

Fabasoft Xpublisher has integrated the highly regarded Taskforce IT-Standards into its multichannel publishing software. These modular process models − designed specifically for the publishing industry − are used to define workflows that simplify the rollout of new software and minimize the effort involved in the implementation process. This enables publishers to put Xpublisher to productive use immediately.

Standardized implementation process facilitates immediate use of the software

The aim of the Taskforce IT-Standards of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association is to develop predefined process models for implementing new software for the publishing industry. Together with the Taskforce, Fabasoft Xpublisher was among the first companies to launch publishing software based on the Standards. With the integration of the parsX XML standard for textbook publishers, it enables rapid deployment of an “XML-first“ production environment tailored to the publishing industry‘s needs.

“Publishers need efficient, digitized processes to remain competitive,” explains Carsten Schwab, Head of Publishing at Edupartner and initiator and co-spokesperson of the Taskforce IT-Standards. “Through its work, the Taskforce IT-Standards aims to provide the industry with access to the technology needed to achieve this. By offering this service, we are delivering on the Taskforce’s promise to make state-of-the-art publishing software available at a price point that has never been available before.“ 

Carsten Schwab and Felix Ehrlich, Head of Product Xpublisher, will be presenting the integration of the IT-Standards into Fabasoft Xpublisher at the upcoming CrossMediaForum.
