2013-14As the new year approaches, we find ourselves looking back at 2013 and evaluating progress, even as we work to improve in the coming year. Omnipress experienced a lot of change and growth in 2013. Let’s take a deeper dive to learn more.

Trends in Association Content Delivery

  • Associations moved away from USBs and CDs in 2013. This technology is not completely obsolete; many associations still count on it. Overall, though, we’ve seen a sharp decline in the use of USBs and CDs.

Product Launches & Enhancements

  • Digital Publishing Platform: All types of association content are welcome on our new system, ideal for providing a searchable central hub of association content. Publications, directories, standards, policy books, and more work very well in online versions. For more information on the DPP, read the whitepaper!
  • Mobile Event App: As mentioned above, our mobile event app has undergone some exciting updates in the past year. Try it out for yourself with our demo. You can also read the whitepaper for details.
  • Abstract and Speaker Management System: Collection is red-hot right now, and for good reason. Beyond saving submitters and reviewers alike from confusing email chains, leaving everyone wondering where a project stands, our system has two new features that make the process even easier. We can collect submitter fees on behalf of an association through a payment gateway, taking one more task of the event planner’s mile-long to-do list. To ensure that a submitted paper is truly shut down for editing, we now offer a lockbox. Once an abstract is added to the lockbox, no further edits can be made. Read more about these changes here.
  • Event Ecosystem: The more you use Omnipress to help with your association content needs, the easier it is for you to manage your event. We can take care of your content from collection to digital archive, with all the steps in between (printed program and proceedings, mobile event app, and event content website). Use Omnipress for continuing education training content and online publications for even greater benefit. Learn more about your all-in-one content solution by reading the whitepaper.
