Any data to any format
AMA provides expert data management services to the publishing industry. Data is the life blood of most businesses,
but it is often held in many different non-compatible formats, making it hard
or even impossible to use effectively. It could be in obsolete formats, or on
separate databases or in hard copy and not available digitally. Data that it is
inaccessible is of little practical use.
If this sounds like your business, then you should talk to AMA. We can capture your data from whichever format it is
currently held, and convert it into a structured, usable format, for example
from old typesetting systems into Word. We can build a bespoke database on the
AMA CMS, where your data can be accessed easily for publishing, marketing or
administration uses. And we are able to enhance or enrich the information you
hold, for example by validating customer data such as postal addresses, or
appending useful additional marketing information from trusted external
Put simply, we can turn your data into a powerful resource to help drive competitive advantage.
Equally we understand that the cost of managing your data needs to be realistic. That’s why for more routine tasks
such as data capture we work with partner companies who provide a rapid, tried
and trusted service at very competitive prices, with data double keyed to
ensure the highest possible accuracy. This is an especially valuable service
where, for example, you want to create digital versions of manuscripts or even
old books that are currently only held in hard copy.
Finally, when we say ‘any data to any format’, that’s exactly what we mean. We can convert from any data source to
SGML, HTML, XML or to any structured format specifically for the customer’s use
or for any type of publication.
