CAPE CORAL, Fla., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Unlimited Priorities Corporation, an award-winning company specializing in services for the information industry, has developed an imaging solution for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's e-book growth initiative.  Unlimited Priorities has developed the plan, prepared the specifications, and mapped the workflow, providing a firm foundation for the acceleration of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's e-book availability.  The initiative, which encompasses materials ranging from children's stories to cookbooks, novels and biographies, will be ongoing as new titles are published.

"Unlimited Priorities really worked closely with us to understand and accommodate our needs," said David Jost, Vice President of Digital Content development for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.  "Their high-quality imaging solution, reliable workflow management, and technical expertise enabled us to convert the titles we needed to the epub format in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner."

Kent Meyer is a technology master at Unlimited Priorities and is among the team of experts providing guidance in this venture.  Unlimited Priorities provides opportunities for publishers to evaluate existing production processes and to create new streamlined systems and procedures to meet the challenges of publishing in the digital era.  Their production experts take a close look at internal processes, provide external comparisons and benchmarking, and evaluate systems-process interactions, then identify opportunities for cost recovery, productivity gains, and enhanced revenue.

Iris Hanney, President of Unlimited Priorities, said: "We have worked with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt over the years, and they have always been on the cutting edge.  It is great to go to the next level with them in preparing their important titles for distribution on this new platform.  Unlimited Priorities has the expertise and breadth to supply a range of publishers' needs, from production, sales, marketing, and technology to content development and licensing."
