With eXtyles, we saw a quick and substantial return on our investment. We’ve not only saved time and improved the quality of our publications; we’ve also significantly cut our production costs.

Anne Vinnicombe

Vice President of Production and Electronic Publishing at Thieme Publishers New York

Setting aside the fact that eXtyles admirably performs as advertised, what I appreciate about the Inera team is that they come through on their promises: deliverables arrive when expected and run as expected. This sets them aside from many other software vendors.

Barry Bergin

Production Manager at American Concrete Institute

We find eXtyles to be an excellent partner because of their dedication to serving their customers.

Chris Hausler

Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Typefi Systems

Now that production sees how well the eXtyles conversion works, they wish they had done this years ago!

Jim Bender

XML IT Specialist at the United States Government Printing Office

We're definitely loving the advantage we're getting just straightening out references.

Larry Klein

Production Manager at the American Society for Microbiology

We don’t like to think back to the days when we didn’t have eXtyles for Optics Express production. We’re having great success with the software.

M. Scott Dineen

Director of Editorial Services at the Optical Society of America

Our return on investment in eXtyles is Inera’s commitment to the quality and adaptability of its product, the expertise of its staff, and the sincerity with which that staff interacts with its customers.

Peter Olson

Senior Copyediting Coordinator at Dartmouth Journal Services

eXtyles is the only tool we never consider changing or removing from our workflow.

Rob O'Donnell

Electronic Publishing and Production Director at Rockefeller University Press

It's a pleasure to promote eXtyles, as it really does magic in our documents.

Serge Juillerat

System Specialist at the International Organization for Standardization

People in our production working with eXtyles see something magical.

Deputy Head of Computer Support, MAIK Nauka/Interperiodica
