PubPro is a cross-platform publishing management program intended to provide magazine publishers with sales, editorial and administration assistance. Created using FileMaker Pro 5, PubPro provides automated, customized billing capabilities for both advertisers and suppliers, detailed revenue and payment tracking, an editorial network database that helps plan issues and more.
iArch Global President Nicholas Rhodes said that PubPro X2 will gain myriad features including a full Web interface, synchronization to Palm OS-based PDAs, multiple publication tracking, multi-currency support and customizable security levels. Flat plan layouts and text export to desktop publishing apps will also be supported. Pricing varies depending on modules chosen, but it starts with a three-user license at US$499.
Rhodes said that PPX2e is planned due to a large amount of demand from the education market. PPX2e will be a “cut down” version of the full product, but aimed at educational facilities that produce newsletters, newspapers and yearbooks. The feature list and pricing are not yet set, but it’s expected to ship in early October with a price under $150.
