Rapid Production Manager™ (RPM) is a unique content management system developed by Cadmus to provide workflow management and tracking of all production steps and production history. RPM seamlessly links the entire editorial and production process in a centralized end-to-end solution. RPM receives content manually or electronically from manuscript submission systems, manages files for multiple issues and production stages, sends automated emails and alerts, and generates reports and invaluable data for budget and performance tracking. RPM supports both conventional and XML production, and offers easy access to production essentials for telecommuters and freelance editors.
RPM is the foundation of Rapid Tracking, a web-based production interface that gives our customers access to real-time production data, updated immediately as articles pass through production steps. Similar to RPM, Rapid Tracking generates detailed reports that enable publishers to measure important budget and production metrics. Using Rapid Tracking, Cadmus customers can also conveniently manage issue line-ups online, place articles on hold, send changes to account managers, access Rapid Proofs, and more.
