Wolters Kluwer

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory partners with PublishOne

Wolters Kluwer is one of the largest global information solutions and services providers. While Wolters Kluwer began as a print publisher, today, over two-thirds of Wolters Kluwer’s offerings to legal & regulatory, health, tax and risk & compliance professionals are digital and software solutions, including online content.

Having knowledge available online offers many advantages, such as enhancing the ease of finding information and the possibility of connecting knowledge to other knowledge. The online environment also provides a new opportunity for the division to work more effectively with the (international) authors who make their expert insights and analysis available to professionals through Wolters Kluwer LR.

The new norm: online publishing
A large scale transition from print to digital is happening in the knowledge industry. As a frontrunner in this development, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory (LR) searched for a tool that would allow authors to publish in a futureproof and easy way. As Wolters Kluwer LR works with the leading experts around the world, the tool needed to be customisable to suit the wishes of international authors, and be intuitive to use. The author environment also needed to be flexible. As many suppliers have their own environments – the tool needed to fit with those, as well. PublishOne fulfilled these requirements, and more.

One flexible worldwide solution
Authors who work on titles for Wolters Kluwer LR generally use Microsoft Word. PublishOne offers both a Word-base web editor and a plugin for Word itself, so authors can keep working in their trusted environment. PublishOne’s customisability makes it especially suitable for the various areas of interest and international authors working with Wolters Kluwer. Both the front end and the back end are easily configurable to the wishes of different offices worldwide. PublishOne Specialists offer support where necessary and train users. This works so well, all countries of Wolters Kluwer LR in Europe already use PublishOne.

PublishOne has helped Wolters Kluwer LR to streamline and automate the content process in a digital environment. A new file type, a different working process… no matter the development, PublishOne is ready to handle it or can be adapted easily. This flexibility has led to a high rate of acceptance in Wolters Kluwer’s network, including suppliers that have adopted PublishOne. Wolters Kluwer LR, its authors and its customers now benefit from the shorter time-to-market with new content. As a result, authors prefer PublishOne over previous solutions and are looking forward to future updates as Wolters Kluwer LR partners with PublishOne to continue to evolve the platform to always deliver the best user experience possible.
