Leading publishing group, Macmillan has chosen to digitally publish their content including academic textbooks with the help of the Realmdigital team. Realmdigital has vast amounts of experience with digital publishing technologies and have chosen to use the Snapplify solution for the Macmillan project. Macmillans' core focus is shaping the future of South African education.
Independent Newspapers is one of South Africa' s leading newspaper publishers housing titles such as The Star, Pretoria News and Cape Argus. Realmdigital was commissioned to work on an innovative feature for Snapplify and IOL. The Snapplify solution is easy to use and allows publishers to simply upload their file (supports multiple formats) into an easy to use content management system which then appears in the app for sale. However, newspapers are different in that they are not produced in the order that they are read due to layouts and spreads. This made it complicated for newspaper publishers to simply upload their ready-to-print file into the app.
The team at Realmdigital has rebuilt the partner website of the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation, giving it a strong visual appeal and handing the Foundation the means to take total control over its own content. Lavinia Crawford-Browne – long-time PA to the Archbishop Desmond Tutu and marketing-liaison officer for the Foundation – says its previous website (donated) was unsupported and difficult to use, giving the Foundation an unwelcoming, out-of-date public façade. “We had to have a new site. I came upon Realmdigital, which, to our minds, offered a highly compelling package that could help showcase the Foundation’s contribution to HIV research and community work, and the value of partnering with us.”
