BEA Promotes Publishing Innovation at Startup Challenge
Kadaxis hopes to solve this problem by automating as much of the metadata process as possible. Right now the company is testing phase one of its automation process -- extracting metadata from entire works -- and is working with several publishers and authors to do this. The second phase, which Sim hopes to test in the near term, involves optimizing that extracted metadata with search engines and SEO providers, hence Kadaxis' handle, "SEO for books."
"We'll be launching our product later this year," says Sim, "So watch this space!" Currently, publishers or authors interested in metadata automation can sign up for Kadaxis' private beta.
