AQ Cloud Authoring lets just about anyone looking to publish an eBook easily convert PDF files into digital format and distribute across tablets, smartphones and the Web. With simple-to-use production tools, users can re-order and crop pages as well as add enrichments like Guided Reading, a unique Aquafadas capability that allows readers to glide smoothly through text with one simple tap. AQ Cloud Authoring’s flexible export options include ePUB, AVE (for publishing apps) and the WebReader.

AQ Cloud Authoring makes it simple for publishers to quickly create near exact replicas of any print publication, requiring only an Internet connection to convert files. The intuitive workflow, which is designed for non-technical users, supports all document types – magazines, books, marketing collateral and more. Authors just upload files into AQ Cloud Authoring, fill out the metadata, then add enrichments, and make simple adjustments, such as cropping or re-ordering the pages. Before purchasing the final product, users can take content through a test-spin on the spot by downloading 30% of the file for free.
Volume Publishing That Saves Money and Time
AQ Cloud Authoring also lets publishers turn large volumes of PDF files into digital content in a matter of minutes. No longer do organizations need to spend additional time and resources to painstakingly recreate titles into digital-specific formats. With AQ Cloud Authoring, users can easily convert vast archives or mass-produced content in just ten minutes, providing a fast and affordable way for publishers to offer a wide variety of material on tablets and the web.
