Software for Publishers

Gropen Associates hosts this directory as a free service to the community. We hope it helps you find just the professional you need!

We don't provide any of the services below.

Please do ask us about any financial or operational problems. We provide advice to publishers on an inexpensive "question-by-question" basis. We also offer software packages, helping you tackle common issues independently.

Contact us for assistance whenever you face a difficult situation. If it's not Marion's area of expertise, she probably knows who does cover it!

Offered in two series, Classic and Professional, the Anybook software is inexpensive and covers many accounting issues for the small publisher. It requires that you have a Windows operating environment.

A venerable industry-specific information system. There is a very full menu of functions available. The programs are designed for those smaller publishers that are one step up from the bottom in size.

An accounts receivable, royalties and database application designed for small presses.

Program Add-ins for Microsoft Word: A program add-in is a collection of macros that run in Microsoft Word, making it do any number of things it couldn't ordinarily handle, such as finding and replacing multiple items, cleaning up common editorial problems, and extracting embedded footnotes. All of our programs include batch processing, letting you do in minutes what used to take hours.

From the guy who started cisPub, a system designed for smaller presses, but with full functionality.

There is a free posem Reader for those who need to see corrected documents but not physically change them.
