Tools of Change 2013

O'Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing 2013
Tizra is thrilled to once again be exhibiting at the Tools of Change for Publishers Conference, February 12-14, 2013.  Please visit us at booth TT 7. Also, feel free to take advantage of our exhibitor discount, by registering with this Discount Code: TIZRA25.

ToC has always been a great event for Tizra. We were there the first time the event was held in 2007.  And just a couple of months ago, we were recognized by conference chair Joe Wikert as a tool that empowers publishers to reach readers directly.

We love being surrounded by incredibly smart people who share our passion for the world of digital publishing. And what a world it's become!

The population of e-book readers is growing. In the past year, the number of those who read e-books increased from 16% to 23%. And this move toward e-book reading coincides with an increase in ownership of tablets and other electronic book reading devices, growing from 18% to 33%. Digital publishing is branching out, with companies like The New York Times, USA Today, TIME Inc, the Washington Post, Vanity Fair -- among others -- publishing their own ebook content. What better time to connect and see each other through all this amazing change?

If you won't be able to make the ToC conference this year, you can always follow our twitter feed at twitter.com/tizra as we'll be tweeting from floor.

Here's to connecting soon and cheers to another great year at Tools of Change!

AppGap: Tizra more than just a "great tool for content sellers"

Bill Ives has been writing about knowledge management since the days when for most people that meant color coding your files, so we were really pleased when he agreed to evaluate Tizra Publisher in The AppGap , a blog on the future of work. We were even more pleased when he said "I see this service as a great tool for content sellers." But we thought his keenest insight was into applications beyond traditional publishing... [Tizra Publisher] can also be a useful content distribution system for enterprises that need to manage the presentation of their information. This will be especially useful for verticals with a lot of internal content such as legal firms, pharma, and other research oriented enterprises. Ives saw Tizra's combination of easy and yet precisely controlled content distribution as key for these users, and others needing to share marketing and technical information. Read the full review .

Texas Tech University Center Goes Digital and Reduces Print Budget by 80 Percent

CCFCS curriculum materials hosted by Tizra are winning raves from teachers. After 44 years of empowering teachers with print materials that were aligned with key instructional goals, Texas Tech Curriculum Center for Family and Consumer Sciences (CCFCS) made the bold decision to go 100 percent digital using the Tizra digital publishing platform. At first, the task seemed daunting.  “We printed out a copy of each of the curricula and some of them were four inches thick,” says center director Patti Rambo.  In addition to a massive quantity of materials for its 33 courses with 300-350 teaching strategies per course, the school also needed to meet aggressive revenue goals and appeal to a diverse customer base. The Center’s search for solutions was exhaustive until they were directed to Tizra. “Tizra is flexible enough for us to make up the rules as we go along,” said Rambo. “We were able to design our pages so there’s less scrolling, and we were able to color code the courses

2018 Tizra User Summit: What We Learned by Meeting Our Customers Where We Are

They say you should "meet your customers where they are." Well, for Tizra 's 4th annual user conference we decided to take a chance and do the opposite. Instead of going to Chicago or DC, where Tizra customers are concentrated, we bet on hosting in our home town of Providence, RI. It's not that we don't love Chicago and DC, but we really felt we could do something special with the home field advantage. As it turns out, we were right. The Tizra user community is a silo-busting mix of creatives, technologists, content strategists and executives, who share the goal of building, engaging and generating value from audiences with digital content. For this crowd, we didn't want a sterile conference facility. We felt that by giving them a place they could really connect with, we'd help them connect with each other. Providence, with its vibrant tech and design scene, walkable downtown, and non-traditional venues, provided just the funky catalyst we were loo
