PaperlessMe Goes Public

PaperlessMe has come out of beta after a round of glowing reviews from testers in the spring. The conference and classroom note-taking web app allows for users to draw annotations and type notes during a presentation on their own digital copy of the presenter's slides. Now the interface has been honed even further by grouping the drawing, typing, and whiteboard areas to make note-taking and review even more natural and enjoyable.

  • eService for Specs and Documentation Conversion

    eService will be an extension of a current service for converting specifications and other agency documents (e.g. a construction manual) from traditional Word documents to formats suitable for mobile devices (e.g. smart phones, tablets, and eReaders).

    This service automates the process of creating mobile versions of the documents. The document is first converted to XML, from this, we create all the versions:

    • XML - This is a base format that is the foundation for all of of the other formats and potential future formats.
    • Mobile App – This is a device specific app that allows the content to be stored on the phone and accessed offline.
    • HTML Pages - A collection of web pages are created to display the documentation online. The web pages will be responsive pages, which means that they will adapt for the screen size. The pages will be just as easy to view on mobile devices as it is to view on a desktop browser.
    • eReader – converts XML files into popular eReader formats, including the open standard ePUB format.
