EDGE Learning Media is a leading provider of learning material. They believe in creating effective and efficient content, and enriching learning experiences. EDGE Learning Media has a national footprint, which is testament to the hard work done to establish meaningful relationships in education and industry. It is also testament to EDGE’s reputation for developing clients’ enriched learning experiences on time and to budget.

In order to streamline its process and ensure that the same quality content available in its books is provided through a variety of online channels, EDGE embarked on a project to digitize all its content. From textbooks to concept videos to multiple choice questions to case studies, all content was moved from a variety of formats and software packages into a centralized Content Management System.

After significant research, PDFreactor was selected to provide the backbone for this extraction process, thanks to its proven reliability and accuracy in rendering a variety of content. Integrating PDFreactor into the CMS and publishing process has enabled EDGE Learning Media to produce high quality print ready PDFs. Incorporating all the complexity of publishing textbooks, from images and graphs to complex accounting tables has been achieved under the watchful and detailed eye of experienced typesetters.
