Publishers are focusing more and more on high-level functions such as author, trade, and end-customer marketing. A process of consolidation is also taking place within the publishing industry, the economic potential of which lies not least in the ability to specify technical requirements centrally and purchase large scale from a small number of specialized service providers. Non-strategic, operational publishing functions (production, dispatch) are increasingly being outsourced in order to purchase the most cost-effective service on the market and reduce the quota of risks on the balance sheet.
le-tex offers all production-editing and prepress services from a single source. It is also possible to outsource just some of the processes, or to outsource only peak loads.
In order to offer prices that meet customers' market needs, le-tex outsources some processing steps itself to European and Asian sub-suppliers. Quality assurance, however, is always performed in Germany.
