Our </inside> Story

Our story starts from an inside perspective. As an associate director at a major university press I organzied countless demos of the industries best title managment systems. Over the years we saw a plethera of sales pitches but we walked away from every expereince with the same conclusion. Each was more complicated then the next and required more of our resources and staff to maintain then seemed feasibility possible for a mid size univerisity press. The press really needed an easy to use system that could be adopted quickly and not overly burden their budget and their existing publishing processes. Without many available options, ean slowly grew from an idea shared with like minded friends into a well mapped out solution. Eventually ean became a flexible easy to use title management solution that any university press could adopt.
