How it works

The modules of Quark Publishing Platform work together to enable automated assembly and multi-channel publishing of content for different audiences and media types.

The platform creates a customizable, end-to-end publishing solution that facilitates relevant, targeted communications which increase customer engagement and satisfaction. Beyond just print and Web, Quark Publishing Platform supports the reuse and repurposing of content and design to deliver rich, compelling, and interactive digital communications for mobile devices and tablets.
