Building a better AutoMap

Posted on: April 27th, 2010 No Comments

ePublisher includes tools to create designs (Pro), stamp them out (Express), and automate builds (AutoMap).  The thing is, AutoMap, as it exists today, is not always the right fit for our users.  It offers more capability than some folks will ever leverage.  For them, AutoMap is simply too expensive.  Others make extensive use of AutoMap’s command-line capabilities to maximize their use of the product.  In their eyes, AutoMap is huge bargain.

I’d like to figure out how we can better address both types of customers in the future.  Doing so might mean splitting AutoMap into distinct products.  Let’s see if we can define some product offerings that better fit everyone’s needs.
