We built Libero for use in the community and to help all types of publishers lower their publishing costs so that they can spend more time on new innovations with their content. It's great that Digirati are now able to offer this as a service, as that broadens the reach of Libero so that smaller publishers, or those without technical teams, can enjoy the benefits afforded by the high standards of design and usability, faster turn-around times, and machine readable versions.
