When we launched Metrodigi we decided that we would hire people here in the United States. Outsourcing to other countries to save a few bucks did not seem right and the quality of the conversions we saw from offshore sources made us cringe. So we developed a team of eBook developers—professionals with senior book design and advanced web design experience. What this amounts to: these individuals have a strong design sensibility, but are HTML/CSS code monkeys as well. Rare indeed! Finding eBook designers with these talents is tantamount to sighting the Kakapo if you’re a bird enthusiast (which is the world's only flightless parrot).
We’ve automated much of the mundane slicing and dicing with our conversion engine Chaucer™. That leaves the book developers with more time for QA, adding interactive elements and just making sure the books are head-and-shoulders above the competition.
