What our customers say


Flexibility and specialised knowledge key

Norstedts, Sweden’s second-largest publishing group, sees its Schilling publishing software not as an expense, but as an investment that pays back through smoother, more efficient processes. Schilling employees’ vast publishing expertise is one reason why.


We estimate that the project as a whole has given an increase in efficiency of 30%, and our guess is that the Schilling system accounts for half of the impact.
