In Partnership with Ixxus, CCC Now Provides Even More Value to Customers Who Need to Maximize Reuse and Repurposing of Content

Danvers, MA – December 19, 2018 – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, has partnered with FontoXML, becoming a reseller of its core product, the FontoXML Editor, which makes it easy for anyone to create structured and intelligent content.

Structured content is information or content that is organized in a predictable way and is usually classified with metadata. XML is a common storage format, but structured content can also be stored in other standard or proprietary formats.

Intelligent content is an approach to the management of content as a business asset that includes content that is modular, structured, reusable, format-free and semantically rich. This, in turn, makes the content discoverable, reconfigurable, and adaptable for its creators.

“As knowledge engineering specialists, we have a clear vision of what ‘smart’ or ‘intelligent’ content means to our business and the value it brings our clients,” said Kim Zwollo, Vice President, Client Engagement and Business Development, CCC. “We’ve been on a quest to find the ideal editor tool to support that vision, and we’ve found it in FontoXML.”

Working with systems that manage intelligent content, the FontoXML Editor is often the ‘friendly face’ to the content. This allows authors to access, create, and edit, while performing real-time validation to ensure the content’s quality, seamlessly handling annotations, links, and rich media.

“Customers in many industries such as pharma, aviation, legislation, and manufacturing are moving from unstructured to structured authoring to promote re-use, adaptability, and multi-channel publishing,” said Taeke Kuyvenhoven, Co-founder and CCO, FontoXML. “Authors can now create and tag content as they write and then participate in the review and revision process. Bringing these authors into the process can greatly reduce the editorial effort and speed the development of content.”
