MEI Portico™ is your solution for building a branded experience for apps built with Adobe® Digital Publishing Suite™. With Portico, you can present content based on login and manage app assets online anytime, anywhere.

Tailored app experience

Promote Folios and Non-Folio Content
Featured content makes apps powered by Portico more than just a collection of folios. From highlighting individual folio articles to promoting related apps and URLs, Portico presents app users with dynamic content in a branded experience.

  • Highlight specific articles with direct in-folio links.
  • Present embedded or streaming videos.
  • Launch related apps like FaceTime and Skype for instant communication.
  • Cross-promote your other apps or link to iTunes or iBooks.
  • Create rich-media ad opportunities for your sponsors.
  • Guide your users to events or real-world store locations with Google Maps.

Publish Anytime
From refreshing the look of your app to publishing new content, Portico allows you to update your app using its browser-based admin. This feature reduces the need to submit app updates and provides users instant access to your latest content automatically.

Categories
Categorize your content to display folios and selected material to specific groups. These categories allow you to control user experiences and distribute targeted content to your audience.

User Authentication
User authentication helps determine which folios and content are presented upon login, customizing the app experience. Portico makes sharing content and managing your audience intuitive and scalable.

Automated Content Control
Content managed through publishing platforms becomes even more powerful with integration to Portico. Automation controls paired with the scheduled delivery of folio and non-folio content enhances the app experience and provides rich search capabilities for users.

Agile subscription management

Manage DPS Entitlements
Portico’s flexible, multi-tiered model of entitlement service includes supporting third-party database management services, internally-managed members, iOS subscriptions and Adobe’s DPS Entitlements API. This means you can choose to migrate and manage your users right in Portico, reducing dependency and the operating costs of integrating with a fulfillment house.

Access on All Screens
Portico’s entitlement pairing with DPS can restrict access to content through Adobe’s browser-based folio viewer for desktop and laptop computers. This integration makes Portico an ideal gateway for securely sharing content with varied audiences across multiple devices and platforms, including mobile, tablet and the Web.

Precision admin controls

Control Content Online
Using the Web-based admin, you can do it all from anywhere: manage users and categories, edit app data, enable folio title searches and organize content into categories as you see fit. All your changes here are published instantly to your app, with no need to submit an app update.

One Portico for Many Apps, Many Experiences
Think of Portico as your command center for managing multiple DPS apps. One Portico system allows you to customize each app and provides control over each individual app experience.
