We automate publishers


Publishers of all sizes waste thousands of hours grappling with manual and broken processes. We help to solve this problem using innovative technology, industry expertise and outside-the-box thinking.

Why we are different

We don’t want to meet expectations, we want to exceed them!

Whether you want to grow your business, create efficiencies or enhance your customers’ lives we can help realise that vision. We will work in partnership with you to optimise and transform how you work: we won’t just replicate the old way of doing things.  We are daring, opinionated, will ask questions and challenge the status quo to ensure you reach your goals.

Every problem is different so we think outside-the-box to tailor the right solution just for you.



Making a difference to customers is what drives and delights us! Read our customer success stories from integrating Systems to developing a range of CRM solutions.


We have a talented team with years of publishing experience between them. The most important skill of all is communication, but we are also wizards at the technical stuff. We harness this skill set to find the optimum technical solution to automate and transform processes. This means you can concentrate on your core business and what you do best.

Communication skills are critical and an integral part of our approach.

Change management is key (technology is often the easy bit…)

We have delivered solutions on Apex, .Net, Javascript, React and php.

On platforms such as Salesforce, Azure, WS02, WordPress & Sharepoint.

“Our flexible and creative approach means we can deliver at different budget levels.”


The next generation Rights System has arrived. RightsZone is designed by rights professionals for rights users. It’s hosted on the Salesforce platform and because Salesforce helps us take care of the core technology we can put all our energy into developing the best rights licensing experience for you.
