WHAT IS PAGEMAJIK?
PageMajik is a publishing-aware platform designed for the specific requirements of modern publishing.
At its core is a Content Management System (CMS) for storing all your assets. You can upload all files to a secure cloud-based server and also take advantage of custom taxonomies to discover and transform multiple kinds of content, while retaining control of all current and future projects.
We believe in keeping it simple, and this has been our approach to accessing and storing content within the platform. PageMajik automatically creates a folder structure that acts as a placeholder for different types of files. By bringing together the work of authors, editors, and designers on one intuitive platform, PageMajik streamlines the publishing processes and enables effortless collaboration. Its collaborative environment is enabled by the platform's robust version control feature and built-in workflow management solution. Versions can be searched, viewed, downloaded, and reverted.
Encompassing the CMS is an integrated suite of products that significantly enhances the productivity and experience of each member of your publishing team, transforming every aspect of the publishing process from ground-up.
Artificial Intelligence enabled modules within PageMajik address the growing need of publishers to enrich and discover content.
With the publishing terrain changing all the time, publishers need a partner with a constant finger on the pulse to be able to recognize and adapt to new challenges as rapidly as possible.
PageMajik is that system specifically tailored to the needs of publishers.
The future of publishing is here.
PageMajik is flexible and provides a web-based responsive experience that encompasses all aspects of your workflow, providing automation and control to the various stakeholders in the process. It allows for rapid, yet simplified publishing and the ability to publish in multiple formats. Choosing PageMajik offers you the future of publishing today.
Organize and Optimize
Our bespoke solution works with the software, knowledge, and resources publishers already have. It facilitates the controlled storage and retrieval of content at any given time, giving publishers what they need most - a way to tap into the full potential of the resources they already have.
Having multiple ways of categorizing and viewing your data makes it easier to access, monitor, and direct information across the entire workflow. PageMajik CMS stores and catalogues all files including photos, audio, and video, which can be searched, imported, and exported whenever necessary.
Robust version control removes redundancies and selection of the wrong version of any asset. This lets your team collaborate in a hassle-free manner.
Automation = Savings
By automating a wide variety of processes, PageMajik ensures that most routine tasks are taken care of, allowing publishers to focus on high - level editorial and creative enhancements.
A built-in authoring function gives content creators the option of using a guided authoring environment, where the next logical step will continuously be introduced, allowing them to focus on the actual writing.
PageMajik also lets authors and editors check, in real-time, if submission guidelines are being met. For the author, this means the manuscript is evaluated and auto-corrected appropriately, while for the art editor, the resolution and size of artwork is checked against requirements.
PageMajik's ability to transform an unstructured manuscript into a near print-ready format is its most innovative use of AI. It works with you to help cut back on time spent on routine mechanical tasks so you can focus on more meaningful ones.
With an average 40% saving in time owing to PageMajik's automation, you get more time to seek out the next great idea.
Works with You
PageMajik lets users design intricate and versatile workflows using BPMN 2.0, which lets them decide who gets assigned which roles, who gets permission, and access order, for each project.
This means that you get to decide in a granular way who gets access to which information and to whom the manuscript should be sent after the completion of a certain task. This flexibility allows for customizing the chosen workflows to whatever your needs are, ensuring that PageMajik will not compel you to change anything about the way you work.
In addition, your workflows already in place can be adhered to and your existing systems can be integrated with PageMajik using an Application Program Interface (API). So, instead of imposing several strenuous steps on your way of working, the system adapts itself to your existing processes. Adoption is therefore made incredibly straightforward, meaning you can start working within the PageMajik environment with minimum onboarding and training.
Works with You
What makes PageMajik essential to publishing is its ability to incorporate your workflow rules, enabling you to direct the way information is stored, handled, and shared.
You get a bird's eye view of the entire production process and total control over who gets access to which information and to whom the manuscript should be sent after the completion of a task.
Since the workflow can be customised to your needs, you will not be compelled to change anything about the way you work. This flexibility of the workflow means that instead of imposing several strenuous steps on your ways of working, PageMajik adapts itself to your existing processes.
Your workflows already in place can be adhered to and your existing systems can be integrated with PageMajik.

Everyone deserves to be pampered, right?
Quick Feedback. Actionable Insights.
For all the effort publishers, authors, and designers put in, success is still a matter of unpredictability. PageMajik changes this with modules that keep you informed and in contact with current trends, showing you exactly what works and what won't.
Smart Dashboards and VoiceMaps provide real-time access to the progress of your review panel and quantitative/qualitative feedback on your content. Data Mining tools facilitate predictions on market acceptance and identifying strengths and weaknesses, and exploration of key indicators of your content's quality and utility. Our Content Review Platform saves you time and supports evidence-based decisions.
To help tackle the increasing number of article submissions, PageMajik's ScoreCard rapidly sifts and sorts submitted manuscripts. By examining the range of dates of the works cited, the frequency of articles from each year, and which journals and books are being referred to, it helps establish how relevant the submission is to contemporary research trends, as well as check for completeness and quality.
Once generated, keywords can be used to systematise, search, and retrieve resources, allowing for robust discoverability, whatever the purpose may be. The same content can then be reused and repackaged according to the needs that arise, helping publishers make the most out of their painstakingly developed content.
Let AI work its magic, so you can work yours.
As submissions multiply, publishers need a system that can automatically and thoroughly scan existing and new content and extract important terms.
Through the use of an AI Inference Engine coupled with statistical modelling and algorithms, key terms are extracted from the content. The cutting edge nature of the tech employed lets the engine "understand" the document, intelligently locating crucial concepts and related terms.

Let AI work its magic, so you can work yours.
Once a template is specified, WordSword continuously determines and suggests the next appropriate style (eg: "paragraph", "sub-heading") for the writer to adopt. These template styles can be customized to the requirements of individual books, letting each publisher customize the environment to their singular requirements.
At any given time, only the styles most relevant to the current hierarchical context are exposed to the author, ensuring that the publisher's comprehensive formatting requirements are adhered to without burdening the author.
WYCIWYG provides two screens: one with the PDF under review and the other with an editable XHTML version of the PDF. Authors, editors, and proofreaders can review the PDF and make any changes they wish in the XHTML file. Once the reviewer is content with the edits made, the XHTML file is uploaded to the PageMajik system. When the system is triggered to generate revises, the edits are automatically incorporated into the InDesign application file and a revised PDF is made available in a matter of minutes. Only textual changes are incorporated, and this is done without disrupting the existing page makeup.
This eliminates the need to mark edits on paper or as comments on PDFs, as well as the associated juggling between multiple editors and production staff to get edits incorporated into the document.
In addition to the time and effort saved, the straightforward nature of the new process also minimizes the possibility of inaccuracies due to oversight and misinterpretation of reviewer intentions.
Each manuscript is evaluated against the publisher's house style requirements, and any inconsistencies, non-compliance with style guidelines, grammar errors, context-based errors, and improper abbreviations, and word usage are highlighted for review and correction. Based on these, StyleFinder also generates reports on inconsistencies in language use across chapters to help authors and editors maintain standards.
The creation of bibliographies and reference lists is substantially simplified since all citations and references are automatically styled appropriately and well as checked for completeness. In addition, major reference databases such as PubMed and Crossref can be used to authenticate each individual citation and reference.
Once a structured manuscript is generated from StyleFinder, EasyType creates an InDesign file by breaking up the manuscript into separate pages, bringing in all the text and then intelligently placing figures and pictures.
Once this InDesign file is ready, all that the production designer has to do is review the file and make minor design adjustments for aesthetic purposes.
Even for designs requiring creative paging that would preclude the use of a single standardized template, EasyType is still a big advantage to designers as they receive a galley, with the design elements placed automatically in discrete pages, letting them focus on higher level creative decisions.
In addition to being an all‐purpose repository for your files, PageMajik provides a constellation of products carefully thought through to enhance the abilities and experience of every single member on your publishing team - including publishers, authors, illustrators, editors, designers, rights managers, index creators, sensitivity readers, and translators.

CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Publishers need a system to store, track, and reuse resources - a way of not just storing content but a way of keeping content alive. PageMajik's CMS does precisely this by allowing you to capture, store and manage, deliver, and archive content.
By bringing together the output of authoring, editing, and design in a single accessible system, it streamlines the entire publishing process. All the data submitted is stored in secure servers on the cloud, ensuring constant access to all the content, images, and meta data at any given time.
The CMS is "publishing aware" - it interprets incoming content such as manuscripts for books and journals, images, design templates and organises them accordingly into a pre-defined hierarchy. The security and privacy of the content is enforced by granting access to perform a certain role-based function and controlling access to the specific content.
The system is incredibly intuitive, and users have to familiarise themselves with only three screens to initiate any process or to carry out an activity. These are the Bookshelf, Chapter, and Tab screens, with each process logically connected according to use patterns. Content can be searched, retrieved, and reused to create new products within minutes.
Robust version control features maintain a record of every file and the manner in which they are modified. Because each piece of content is only stored one time in a CMS, it is easy to locate and reuse this content in single or multiple documents. The version history serves as an audit trail, and allows for viewing earlier material, and even reverting to an earlier version if required.
The entire CMS is periodically synced for effortless disaster recovery. This protects your content at all times.
PageMajik CMS features:
- Version control
- Check In and Check Out files with descriptive comment or remark updates
- Audit trail
- Systematic and periodic backup
- Disaster Recovery
The future's here, and for an astonishingly small monthly fee.
WORKFLOW MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
WORKFLOW MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
PageMajik has a built-in Workflow Management System (WMS), whose underlying workflow engine is based on the BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation by Object Management Group) 2.0 standard. This allows designing of complex, yet flexible, linear and parallel workflows to derive maximum efficiencies in each project.
A workflow is a chain of tasks and processes that help produce a final outcome, i.e., work that needs to be completed. Tasks to be executed in sequence or in parallel, branching from one task to another route or task based on a condition, and converging at a different stage are defined in the workflow and attached to a business process that needs to be workflow-automated.
PageMajik allows the publisher to create as many workflows as needed to support art analysis, book cover design process, and index review. The user is presented with a personal workbench listing tasks needing attention grouped by their functional role as well as specifically assigned to them.
The workflow allows your entire team understand how their individual tasks fit in, and enables them to execute your content strategy.
Tracking tasks, automatically notifying the team of completion, allowing for milestones to be built in for every task, and allowing the team to easily mark a task as complete.
PageMajik WMS features:
- Visual form designer to model/define the workflow
- Status indicators to highlight the current stage in a different colour to track the progress.
- Role-based control for each stage/task
- Notifications and reminders in terms of emails and messages through the Notification Centre
- Scheduler-enforced workflow
Helping you design your ideal workspace.
WordSword templates are customisable and can address a range of content authoring needs. For example, writers contributing to heavily designed children's books can use the interactive authoring environment to overlay content with visual aids in a representative layout. Creators of workbooks with a standard set of questions/clues can benefit from a simple "drag and drop" feature to import the appropriate template and then write into it. This provides authors with a representation of how these elements will eventually look, giving them the opportunity to trim or augment the content based on aesthetic or pedagogical preferences.
WordSword ensures that the publisher's comprehensive formatting requirements are adhered to without burdening the author, and lets the author focus on actual content creation.
WordSword is a guided authoring environment that intelligently assists the author through the writing process, making sure editorial requirements are met while writing.
Once a template is chosen, WordSword continuously uses context to determine and suggest the appropriate style (e.g., "paragraph", "sub-heading") for the writer to adopt. At any given time, the author is exposed to only the styles relevant at that point, ensuring that the focus is on the actual writing itself. The styles suggested are built into each template, and can be customised according to the requirements of individual publications.
Among StyleFinder' most impressive tagging capabilities is its ability to automatically tag each reference in an incredibly granular fashion, identifying individual author names, journal or book title, volume and/or issue number, page ranges, etc. References can be checked against major databases such as Crossref and PubMed and can be output to reference formats such as the MLA and the APA.
StyleFinder also analyses the content against the publisher' style preferences, and flags and recommends changes for inconsistencies, non-compliance with style guidelines, grammar errors, context-based errors, abbreviations, and improper word usages.
Granular tagging by StyleFinder enables reuse of your content whenever needed, in any capacity and form deemed appropriate, while an exhaustive suite of validation checks is used to parse content comprehensively and inside-out.
Revolutionise how content is thought about, produced, and used!
StyleFinder automatically structures and tags all manuscript elements, and inspects the document for completeness and quality according to metrics determined by the editor. The automated and fine-grained review of the content uploaded allows publishers to process large volumes of submissions with an ease that humans can only dream of matching.
Any manuscript submitted - whether a book or a journal article - is structured comprehensively, thereby enriching its discoverability. Elements such as headings, paragraphs, figures, tables, boxes, citations, and references are automatically identified and tagged, and the manuscript can be evaluated against the publisher' submission guidelines.
Regardless of the kind of content that needs to be typeset, EasyType automates monotonous, repetitive tasks, letting designers focus on higher level creative decisions. In the case of designs requiring creative paging that would preclude the use of a single standardised template, EasyType can still automatically place all the required elements in discrete pages. Placement of images proximal to related content, their orientation, and column span are automatically determined.
All that a production designer has to do is review the output from EasyType and make minor adjustments in the InDesign file for aesthetic purposes. This might include balancing columns on a page or moving certain images around. Regardless, it reduces the extent of work for the designers.
Treat yourself to the extra time you will have!
EasyType is an automated typesetting module that creates near-perfect InDesign pages from Word manuscripts without any human intervention. And this happens in a matter of minutes, significantly simplifying and speeding up a task that would otherwise takes days to complete.
All you need is a well-defined InDesign template detailing the elements in the layout. Efficient use of InDesign features such as libraries, master pages, object styles, anchored objects, text wrap, conditional text, and footnote/endnote options vastly enhances the quality of the output.
Users are provided with a two-pane view: one that displays the PDF to be reviewed and the other, a linked and editable XHTML version of the same PDF. Authors and proofreaders can review the PDF as they usually would by scrolling through it. In the event a change needs to be made, clicking on any content on the PDF will result in the XHTML view synchronising to the same content. The change can be made in the XHTML, and is tracked by default. Queries can be included as comments using the built-in "Comments" feature of the editor.
Once the review is complete, the edited XHTML file is uploaded to PageMajik, and at the push of a button, all changes in the reviewed XHTML are automatically incorporated into the InDesign application file. It is important to recognise that only the changes are taken into InDesign, without affecting the existing layout. Needless to say, extensive changes at this juncture will cause reflow and would need to be addressed in InDesign.
The WYCIWYG workflow eliminates the need to mark up changes on paper or as comments on PDFs and the subsequent steps of manual incorporation of the changes into InDesign and proof checking to ensure the accuracy of the revision. In addition to the time and effort saved, the possibility of inaccuracies resulting from oversight and misinterpretation is minimized by the straightforward nature of the new proofing process.
WYCIWYG (What You Change Is What You Get) is a next-gen proofreading system that lets users review and edit proofs in near real-time. WYCIWYG removes the need for numerous exchanges of files among proofreaders, editors, and the designer, which is both time-intensive and prone to errors.
PDF proofing, even when electronic, is fraught with its own set of challenges. Authors need to be comfortable with using the commenting environment and the associated toolset, and the markups need to be carefully transferred to the InDesign file by a designer. WYCIWYG helps handle these tasks efficiently.
PageMajik's inbuilt image processor lets you compare different versions of the same image, allowing for validating edits made across versions. Machine learning technology is used to sharpen photos, dramatically improving the quality of the images. Text in images can be automatically recognized and modified without the intervention of specialist users or image software.
You have got a true friend in PhotoPal.
DesignSync is an InDesign plugin that allows the designer to download a version of the InDesign file from the CMS/DAM with all the linked assets. The InDesign file will remain locked and be synced to the version in the CMS/DAM, so that any edits made is reflected in the CMS.
A system where designers can feel at home.
SmartSubmit is an easy-to-use interface that aims to enhance the experience of both people making submissions and the editors who review those submissions. An automatic and instantaneous check at the point of submission ensures that all the necessary elements are present, and prompts the author to add anything missing. Any required metadata is also extracted, and the editor not only receives complete submissions.
A submission system worthy of you.
All information pertaining to rights and permissions can be stored and tracked using PageMajik'spermission log. The data fields that need to be filled in can be customized for each book or journal, and once filled in the information is embedded in the corresponding image as well. Appropriate users will be notified when permissions are about to expire or when the limit is exceeded.
This way, you can give yourself permission to relax.

Review allows you to capture actionable feedback from experts and gather critical insights from target markets during the creative process itself.
An intuitive interface allows the publisher/editor to review the extracted key terms in context and make changes that they deem necessary. With the use of KeyFinder, it is possible to generate the key terms at an early stage in the publishing process.
Other than enhancing discoverability, KeyFinder is architected to facilitate publishers/editors to have access to content insights to make informed decisions at any stage in the publishing process.
- Use cases where KeyFinder can make a difference include:
- checking incoming content for relevance such as (but not limited to) journal, reviewer, and subject;
- analysing topic coverage such as region, experimental material, techniques, phenomena, issues, and benefits;
- facilitating other value added services such as index generation, gap analysis, and content repurposing.
- To help select trending keywords
- To enhance peer review to match journal, reviewer
- KeyFinder API services for system integration
With AI doing the heavy lifting, create your keywords faster than ever!
KeyFinder is an AI-assisted keywords extraction engine for any kind of content. Keywords enhance the discoverability of the content.
Content ingested into PageMajik is clustered using an AI Inference Engine coupled with statistical modelling and algorithms. The cutting-edge technology lets the engine "understand" the document, intelligently locating crucial concepts along with their related terms.
Upon completion, the EasyType engine automatically inserts the page locators for the embedded index entries in the InDesign file and generates the index. Publisher's style requirements such as conflation of page numbers, alphabetising, run-in or indented style are automatically incorporated.
The main focus of Indexis is to allow the indexer sufficient time to prepare a comprehensive index, without impacting the overall production schedule. This is achieved by enabling the indexer to start the indexing process soon after the copyedit phase without having to wait till the final proof is ready.
The interactive interface improves the productivity of the indexer without having to manually mark the index terms, note them down or assemble/group the terms before finalizing the index.
- AI-assisted hybrid solution for Index generation based on automated keyword extraction.
Making indexing faster, and more efficient.
Indexis allows you to prepare indexes with concise main and sub entry index terms and page locators that give readers the exact location of information.
The user interface facilitates the indexer to mark the index term and identify the level it corresponds to. As and when the term is marked, a tree structure is populated and the indexer is presented with various options to move the term to a different level or a different group, or to delete the term itself.
Content ingested into PageMajik is algorithmically clustered using an AI Inference engine coupled with statistical modelling and algorithms.
The Inference Engine extracts keywords using an unsupervised model. It is carefully architected to recognize disjointed, diversified keywords for coverage and consumer-focused keywords that would matter to the audience. These keywords are then codified to categorize the book/article under subject code(s).
An insightful dashboard charts the books per the classification for the publisher/editor to analyze the gap or topic concentration in their publications to facilitate the right acquisitions.
Though cataloguing is the main use case for subject classification, AutoClassify is designed to extend beyond to increase sales by comparing what is on the publisher's shelf against what is trending in the industry provisioning key information for the website.
- An interface to add, edit or remove the subject classification
- Facilitating custom book creation by content repurposing
Because you need a system that values your content as much as you do.
AutoClassify is an AI-assisted subject classification engine for any kind of content.
Subject Classification Schemes are a standard way of communicating subject information about the content to retailers, data aggregators, bloggers and ultimately - consumers - to help identify where the book should be shelved in a physical store and how it can be found via search or browse in an online store, catalogue, or other discovery platform.
The next step is Scoring, wherein StyleFinder provisions author score and reference score. Author score is the highest score of an author from previously published works, including past retractions, while reference score is an average of the 10 most influential works cited in the article.
A drilled-down dashboard provides the following information about the article for selection screening or desk rejects:
- a snapshot of works cited, their dates of publication and the frequency of articles from each year establishes whether recent publications were used as the basis for the research;
- instances of self-citation and citation stacking;
- Language inconsistencies based on 400+ preconfigured grammar and spelling rules derived from the Chicago Manual of Style and other standards such as the APA and the AMA; and
- a detailed analysis on the submission meeting the publisher's house requirements.
- Score for disciplinary aptness, i.e., the journals and books referenced.
- Differential weighting of scores based on the publishing house's acceptance and rejections to make room for diverse requirements of different fields.
- Additional language rules to identify jargon, clich\E9s, sexism, security gaffes, hedging, and pretentiousness.
- Readability index of article to assess the understandability of the content.
- Trending keywords analysis, i.e., how relevant is the article today?
Making publishing less arbitrary.
ScoreCard is a screening dashboard used for filtering incoming article submissions to journals to facilitate the publisher/editor to tackle the increasing number of article submissions and to establish a standard protocol/rationale for the screening procedure.
Manuscript ingested into PageMajik is run through a two-step process within StyleFinder, PageMajik's AI engine for assessment. The first step is an Article Check, wherein StyleFinder provides a report on standardisation and normalisation issues such as pre-edit discrepancies, language inconsistencies, and missing citations (box, figure, table, etc).
In 2016, after decades in publishing, a team of publishing professionals and tech wizards decided to start UI Tech to provide tech solutions specially tailored to the needs of publishers. We were convinced, and remain convinced, of the need for a company that was not just technically proficient, but also one that knew the publishing industry intimately.
And so PageMajik was born, and has since then remained committed to helping publishers recognize and adapt to new challenges as rapidly as possible. Drawing inspiration from Arthur C. Clarke's observation that "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic", we are committed to constantly staying well ahead of the field.
The versatility and adaptability of the PageMajik system means users can produce several outputs, including books, journals, travelogues, and eBooks.
To facilitate the diversity of creative processes, the authoring system lets writers keep track of character backgrounds and plot arcs using digital flashcards, Sophisticated AI sorting enables them to compare their creative choices against alternative decisions.
Whether it is textbooks, scholarly tomes, travelogues, or biographies, PageMajik's guided authoring system ensures that publisher requirements are met. Automated pagination and near real-time proofing drastically decrease the time taken to publish.
Production and review of journals is vastly simplified. Metadata from articles can be extracted and analyzed to validate submission quality. Step-by-step guidance ensures that the submission process for abstracts and papers is made significantly more convenient for authors.
Guidebooks and travelogues that are filled with gorgeous high-quality images can now be designed in dramatically reduced time. PageMajik's InDesign extension ImageDropper, which links assets directly to the PageMajik DAM, updates changes to assets in real time to the version in the DAM.
PageMajik assists looseleaf publications by automatically identifying sections that have been modified, updating page numbers, and generating revised PDFs for proofing, thereby transforming a usually cumbersome endeavor into a quick update.
Creating posters for any event/publication requires combining contributions from multiple sources - often these are individual Word documents that need to be given specific layout treatment depending on the sequence in which they are to be displayed. EasyType handles all of this in an automated fashion, removing the need to manually style each focal point in the poster to the design envisaged.
A simple interface that allows for updating or inserting new entries in dictionaries. Alternate meanings and cross references are appropriately tagged and interlinked where appropriate.
eBooks and Digital Content
The underlying XML structure of PageMajik files allows for the rapid creation and instantaneous updating of digital content and ebooks, including pdfs, ePubs, and mobi files.

That depends on the number of projects you wish to move to PageMajik.
How many hours of training is required to operate PageMajik? Will training/support be provided by UI Tech?
PageMajik has been designed in such a way that it is easy to use and takes very little time to familiarize. To make your transition to PageMajik smooth and comfortable, we offer two to three formal training sessions to help you get the best out of this unique online publishing system. After you go live, you can reach out to our Help Desk for any real-time support or for any further assistance.
Do I need to invest in new computer hardware to get PageMajik running?
One of the striking features of PageMajik is its simplicity in design. While it is exhaustive and robust in its features, it does not require any additional hardware. PageMajik is hosted on AWS (Amazon Web Server) and can be accessed using a web browser. What you need to have at your end are licenses for Adobe InDesign and MS Word (2010 or later) for performing file-related tasks.
Are there any hidden costs that I should be aware of when ordering PageMajik? For instance,would you charge me additional charges for customization with a new installation?
There are absolutely no hidden costs with PageMajik. Customization charges will depend on the nature and complexity of your request. Should you require such services, the costs for the same will be intimated to you on request.
What is the expected data availability and do I need to back-up data at regular intervals?
All your files will be saved on Amazon cloud, so you can be assured of 100% data integrity and backup at all times.
Do you have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan?
With PageMajik, you don't need to have any concerns regarding lost files or data. PageMajik is hosted on AWS. So, in the case of an eventuality, you are assured of a secure data back-up and recovery system.
Will PageMajik work both on Mac and PC?
Yes, PageMajik is ideally suited to work on both Mac and Windows environments.
Can PageMajik exchange data with other similar industry standard systems?
This is possible if the systems you are referring to provide an API (application program interface) call. A certain degree of customization can help facilitate exchange of information with PageMajik.
What version of Adobe InDesign do I need to use PageMajik?
You will need Adobe InDesign CS6 or later for PageMajik to run in your system. This is to enable you to make the best use of PageMajik's functionalities to generate and update proofs. If you are using PageMajik to store InDesign files, any version of InDesign can be uploaded.
Which browser would you recommend as the ideal choice for PageMajik?
Google Chrome would be our first choice of browser for PageMajik.
How will an internal quality check verify the revised proof PDF of PageMajik's WYCIWYG workflow?
PageMajik stores versions, and these are accessible to users. Your QC person can check PageMajik's updated (revised) PDF against the (previous) XHTML version, with the ‘track changes’ feature. The two files can be opened in WYCIWYG and the tracked changes visible in the XHTML window can be checked against the PDF. Please note that a click on the PDF will not bring up the appropriate location in the XHTML as in this case the two files are not synchronized versions.
Will there be a problem if an XML workflow based on a specific DTD is being followed throughout?
Absolutely not. What's more, the XML will be preserved.
Can XML files be uploaded as ‘Manuscript’ in case of an XML workflow?
Sure, XML files can be uploaded into the Manuscript folder. And if you have your own way of converting the XML into InDesign, your next step would be to upload the InDesign files into the ‘InDesign’ folder.
If we use an XML workflow, would edits made to the XHTML file update the background XML when the changes are taken into InDesign?
PageMajik will mimic InDesign's behavior when changes are made to InDesign files and there is XML in the background. The content changes will automatically be reflected in the background XML.
If we work in an XML workflow, would changes to the XHTML be reflected in the background XML of InDesign?
No, the changes will not be reflected in the XML.
Why do you use xhtml for WordSword instead of xml?
We find that xhtml gives more value, since authors only tend to be concerned with text and content. However, you can still open xml too within the editor and so this does not make any difference at all.
If I notice any bugs during the engagement period, will UI Tech fix them? If yes, what will be the turnaround time?
You can be assured that we will be with you right through the initial months, as you transition from your current mode of operation onto PageMajik. For the first three months, we will provide 100% support, both online and on-call, for any bug or transition issues. For future upgrade availability, a Technical Information Letter will be sent to the designated contact person, as per our records.
What are the hours of Support at your helpdesk?
At UI Tech, we are available round the clock to address any of your support requirements. Our 24-hour support team can be accessed both by email and phone. The TAT (turnaround time) for any email concern is four hours.
Is PageMajik sold as a perpetual license or as a subscription license?
You can choose to invest in PageMajik either as a perpetual license-based model or on a subscription model, depending on your need.
Can you demonstrate successful similar deployments of PageMajik?
Our client list includes names like KLI, S4Carlisle, and Springer Publishing, who have used PageMajik to their advantage. We can provide case studies of such successful implementation based on request.
Do you offer multi-tenancy?
We should be in a position to offer multi-tenancy very shortly. Our Server/Online version is currently in Beta testing stage.
You talk of PageMajik being future-proofed? Can you explain?
Of late, the publishing industry has been witnessing a ‘digital divide’. And to make sure that we - and you - are on the right side of it, we have already begun addressing this issue with PageMajik. For starters, we have incorporated greater automation of processes to reduce human intervention and error percentage.
How much time would it take to change my tagging structure for my files to work within PageMajik?
Zero, because you do not need to do this at all! PageMajik can be customized to accept your files and you can continue to use the identifiers that you are familiar with.
What versions of Microsoft Word is supported by PageMajik?
We recommend MS Word 2010 or later versions for PageMajik.
" It is refreshing to work with a team that understands the publisher's challenges and not just the technology. We look forward to working on offshoots of the PageMajik system and to the continued cost and time savings we have realized in the production of our product. "-Joanne Jay

Partnering with Springer Publishing Company
Springer Publishing Company publishes books and journals for the healthcare and helping professions. This means creating resources for diverse fields such as nursing, gerontology, rehabilitation, psychology, public health, social work, counseling, medicine, and healthcare administration. They chose PageMajik to help uphold and further their tradition of excellence and service.
A Content Management System was provided to house Springer Publishing's wealth of assets and to enable collaboration among a wide range of contributors and vendors. The built-in version control features helped users external and internal to Springer Publishing access the most up-to-date version of the content at all times.
They were interested in taking advantage of the workflow efficiencies built into PageMajik. One example is the adoption of the proofing module wyCiwyg, which resulted in a 30% cost savings. Authors and proofreaders are able to review and make changes to proofs directly using this interface and their changes, when submitted back into PageMajik, were automatically incorporated by the system. This removed the drudgery around manual transfer of edits from marked up PDF proofs to the InDesign layout and tremendously improved turnaround and accuracy.
We are extremely proud of the work we have already done with Springer Publishing. And in line with our commitment to being a dependable long-term tech partner, we will constantly be on the lookout for ways to further their vision and meeting any new needs that may arise.
