Success Prompts Aries to Rename “Preprint Manager” to “ProduXion Manager”

    Aries Systems, the developer of workflow platforms for scholarly publishers, is pleased to announce that it has renamed its production tracking solution from “Preprint Manager” to “ProduXion Manager.”

    Aries’ cloud-based workflow solutions have been adopted by more than 4,800 scholarly journals and are used to process millions of manuscripts.

    The ProduXion Manager module improves the efficiency of manuscript workflow by administering metadata, tracking files, and enabling issue and vendor management. ProduXion Manager has been adopted by dozens of publishers including the world’s largest Open Access journal (PLOS ONE), Nature, the American Meteorological Society and the American Society of Civil Engineers.

    As a result of integration with third-party solutions, the system processes, ingests and transmits increasing volumes of XML data. Richard Wynne, VP Sales and Marketing at Aries, explained, “XML has become so central to manuscript production tracking that the name change to ProduXion Manager will help communicate the value offered by the system.”
