  13. 13. MPSTrak- Publishing Workflow Management Customer quotes….. “The efficiencies and time savings that ManeyTrack (publisher branded version of MPS Trak) has introduced to my department are very significant. Production editors can focus on the quality of content, customer service and faster publication; Samantha Green Head of Production, Maney Publishing “Over the past decade I have been involved in the development of journal tracking systems as publishers realised their importance to the smooth running and development of journal programs. On viewing Journal Track, I was impressed to discover that they have managed to build on the existing services to develop a truly intuitive system which is powerful in its functionality, yet elegantly designed and easy to interpret. It will be an invaluable resource for both in-house and external editors in the efficient operation of journal management in the digital age. Congratulations.” Dr John Jarvis formerly Senior Vice President of Wiley Europe “ The system is very intuitive and covers most of our requirements of a Production Tracking System. This will surely help us reduce the operational costs and providing more transparency to authors, editors, and typesetters. Emerald Group Publishing UK Publisher 13
