The digifi.it platform integrates with your existing workflows which means you can use the layout software you are already familiar with. For interactive pages we can accept either inDesign (CS5.0+) or Photoshop (CS5.1+) files. For non-interactive pages we can accept PDF files.
The digifi.it platform is extremely flexible so currently all interactivity is added by our in-house content team based on the storyboards you provide to us. In each file all you need to do is provide us with an instruction layer and the digifi.it team will send you a link to approve the page with the interactivity added.
The digifi.it platform is a fully hosted solution which means you don’t need any technical infrastructure. Your content is hosted on our secure, proprietary Content Delivery Network so you can publish your content without writing a single line of code.
We have a simple pricing system for all of our customers. We charge a small annual fee to cover the maintenance of your application and hosting of back issues. In addition to that there is a per issue fee plus a per page fee for any interactive pages in the issue. This means that you pay one, simple flat fee per issue which covers the build and hosting of the issue. No hidden surprises, no per-download charges. No matter how many times your content is downloaded, the price is the same.
The licence fee is payable annually and covers maintenance and upgrades to your application(s) and ongoing hosting of your back issues.
