Our Services


From single conversion and migration steps to complete publishing solutions, we are here to help you with your content management needs.

Your content might vary, from structurally simple texts like novels to highly complex structures like technical and legal documentation, from a hundred pages to a hundred gigabytes. Whatever the case, your business needs will likely be the same. Your content must reach your target audience where they are, on any device they might prefer. At the same time you have to keep costs low, and publish as fast as possible.

Automating your publishing workflow as much as possible is essential for achieving these goals. As soon as the authoring process is done, automated processes can take over from human editors and publish your content on all relevant channels.

Component content management

Manage your content on the component level via topic-based authoring. Write once, reuse any number of times. Reduce the cost of owning and maintaining content by removing duplications.

We help you adapt a standard like DITA or design a proprietary schema which supports your business needs.

Single source publishing

Write your content in a publishing agnostic way, controlled by a semantic schema. Then use automated processes to push content to multiple channels. Reach your target audience on any device they prefer, and keep publishing costs as low as possible.

Content conversion

Do you have unstructured or semi-structured content? We have decades of experience structuring legacy content programmatically. Our rule and pattern driven framework can be configured in flexible ways.

Data silo integration

Isolated data silos make the information scene fragmented. Typically all silos use data schemas and record identification which is incompatible with any other silos.

We use document databases ( MarkLogic or InfoArchive) to integrate, harmonize data from all possible sources and build applications on top of them to make this accessible.

The Sandbox

Employees are encouraged to explore new technologies and projects, and to use some time on contributing to community projects. Here are some examples.

FEST Browser

FEST Browser is a browsing and searching tool over the pharmaceutical drug data made publicly available by Statens Legemiddleverk in the form of FEST XML.

Built on top of eXist-db XML database, the user can browse the catalog of drug entries, and see the XML entries in a pretty-print format.

The FEST Browser is a showcase of the potential of XPath and XQuery over XML content, and how we can provide simple maintenance tools that can make data curation and validation easy.
