PONDUS at a glance

e-books, apps, HTML5 – and tomorrow?
Digitalization constantly poses new challenges. PONDUS was designed especially with this dynamic environment in mind – so that publishers can always gear their work toward the latest technologies and trends.

PONDUS is the publishing house’s central source of information, networking employees, suppliers and customers. The software ensures transparency and up-to-dateness in document management: countless versions of Excel spreadsheets and duplicate data maintenance are a thing of the past. Binding, up-to-date information accessible at all times: that’s PONDUS.

PONDUS emerged from a close collaboration with publishing houses, i.e. from a user perspective. PONDUS is clearly structured and easy to use. Its design and usability are state of the art; all “locations” in the system can be reached in just a few clicks – saving time and money.

Every publishing house has unique requirements for its software. PONDUS was developed precisely in order to reflect this need for individuality. It offers its customers customized solutions – not a one-size-fits-all solution.
