Building the bridge

Building the Bridge

  • Before NIMAS/NIMAC

    • For several years Publishers provided digital files for special materials production.

    • Before NIMAS the task of providing files was decentralized.

    • Quality was not uniform.

    • “Finding the right person” could be time consuming and frustrating.


Crossing the bridge

Crossing the Bridge

  • The immediate production benefit of NIMAS/NIMAC

    • Production departments make PDFs, a file format.

    • Once the AIM task became “make NIMAS”, publishers applied the same efficiencies.

      • Uniform spec, both internal and external

      • Scale pricing (global)

      • Centralized workflow
