MEI was founded in 1990 as Managing Editor Inc., with the goal of providing innovative software solutions to the rapidly evolving publishing industry. Today the company delivers products, services, consulting and custom development to publishers and creative teams working in a wide range of media.
With a user base of more than 2,400 publications in 53 countries, MEI's offerings range from ad-layout software for small-scale shops to enterprise asset and workflow management for multinational operations. Our customers publish everywhere – to print, the Web, mobile and tablets such as the iPad – in market segments ranging from newspapers, magazines and books to b-2-c and corporate communications.
A dedicated staff of engineers and integrators supports and installs multiple systems and applications, including the company’s own products, Adobe® Systems solutions and Oracle, SQL and MySQL server-based systems. While MEI has evolved and grown to integrate, troubleshoot and support numerous legacy and standalone systems, our focus remains on helping customers take on and profit by the challenges of the 21st-century information revolution.
