Very soon The Univex Group will be launching FlipBooker – an online service that will convert your PDF files in to HTML, a mini-website if you wish, to share with your customers. There are many flip book software programs out there. They require installation (typically Windows only), are complicated to use, and sometimes expensive to purchase. Most produce the same Adobe Flash output and some a low-quality mobile version that are just graphic files in disguise. We have tried them all, and they are terrible, so we are building our own to make online publishing painless.
FlipBooker will be producing flip books, e-books, sales catalogues and brochures that look great on all devices. You can zoom in and the text remains clear and legible, not pixelated and fuzzy. Producing a flipbook will be as easy as dragging a PDF file in to your browser – and FlipBooker will do the rest. Videos will also be supported with some intelligent analysis of links within your PDF. When the flipbook is created you will be able to view it, play with it, even re-convert as many times as you wish until you are 100% satisfied. The end result will be available as a zip file for you to download and store offline for safe keeping – it is yours forever.
So what is a business software company doing with flipbooks? Our retail customers such as Kings Plant Barn produce Growing Guides and host them on their web site. Others such as Rivers of Yarrambat upload many PDF files for their cafe and function centre. The Australia Times core product is online magazines. We have many other customers who upload sales catalogues to their web site and desire a content delivery system that is consistent and looks great across all platforms; desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile.
The FlipBooker service will soon be ready for beta testing. We will start converting all existing online content to this new format over the coming weeks and months.
