A software solution we didn't know we needed

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: We publish a parts catalog once a year, but make changes to it many time throughout the year and went from spending 5 figures on printing, shipping, etc to only paying the subscription fee for PaperTurn which is obviously insanely cheap in comparison. We don't need to worry about shipping anything anymore and customers regardless of what type of device they choose to use can pull up our catalog, browse through it, print it, download it, whatever they want to do and anytime we have a price change the second we press upload its reflected online without any tedious effort needed so our prices can be updated in real time for our customers instead of them needing to wait a year or call in to see the new pricing.

Pros:

The ability to make a publication offline, upload it, and have it immediately compatible with all browsers, both desktop and mobile has been a game changer for us. Making changes by simply reuploading our publication on top of itself is amazing. We can make changes daily and our customers never need a new link, there's no downtime, the changes are just instant and all it takes is up pressing upload. The realistic approach of actually turning paper on mobile or desktops, the page turning sound, search function, thumbnail functions, all of the little additional things you wouldn't think mattered have made our customers experiencing searching our catalog so much better.

Cons:

We had a few customers tell us they couldn't access our publication online and after researching the issue we found the server our publication was hosted on was not in the US and their firewall was using GEO-IP to block countries outside of the US. We resolved the issue but be aware that could happen to you.

Comments: We produce a print publication that does not have a digital release, to sell advertising, potential advertisers want to see the publication. Rather than wasting time mailing hard copy issues, I can simply create a pageturn of our most recent issue and email them the link. From there they can view the full issue. Great time saver!! and Great visual experience.

Pros:

When I don't have time, I love I can simply upload my pdf and whoolah...it's ready in minutes. When I need more detail, there are plenty of options to integrate elements, links, etc. I'm not an IT person...and I don't need to be.

Cons:

I do wish my level included a few more books, I really have to keep to a budget, which means I have to remove some pub's before I'd like so more can be added.

Mostly pros, only one con

3.0 last year

Comments: We publish a quarterly digital magazine

Pros:

We find its functionality very user friendly and we use the statistics tab a lot throughout issues to track the progress of readership.

Cons:

With every edition we have difficulties with embedding the custom code onto our Squarespace website. For two such leading brands we would have hoped that this wouldn't be an issue but it is.
