Accelerating excellence across the workflow

Powerful and intuitive by design and function, the digital publishing technology platform automates, streamlines and simplifies all publishing production workflows and tasks. Beneath a modern UI and UX lies an innovative AI workflow engine.

Lanstad Publishing Production Platform

1. Prepare

Deanta’s data science approach to workflow automation and system integration kicks off at the start of all projects with an AI assessment of all files and content supplied. Our AI models ensure the accurately automated ingestion of all metadata, files, content and imagery supplied regardless of where and how that content is supplied. This process automatically creates the respective article/book file along the appropriate schedule for this along with the TOC and castoff for book projects.

2. Convert

Rather than have an operator run a local semi-automatic process to identify each element of the publication, customized machine learning algorithms identify these elements using NLP and automatically convert them to XML to streamline and automate the entire process. In parallel, all related artwork is extracted, sized and automatically improved and converted to the correct format and image specification. The artwork can be accessed in our online gallery where it is also linked to its respective chapter/articles XML file.

3. Update

Lanstad’s ProEditor provides a centralised, user-friendly and intuitive XML editing environment to update article and book content at all stages of production. This includes access to our AI and NLP customised style and grammar tools to tailor the editing needs of the subject area. This removes a huge amount of the manual editorial work, while also assisting editors and reviewers with the process.

4. Deliver

We supply a final deliverable pack of the production and core assets upon completion of every project. This pack includes the final print and electronic formats along with their supporting files (application files, art files, etc.) that could be used for future editions.
