Because we work very, very hard for our clients!
We offer the best quality publications - try to import your PDF into our software, and that of competitors. At first glance, they look similar, but take a good look! Look at the quality of the text, unzoomed and zoomed. Try to print, try to view on mobile.
Converting a PDF to a flipping images is not that difficult. Keeping the same quality as the original PDF is very hard!
We put the reader first - we spent a lot of time developing functions like table of contents and bookmarks/notes which really help your readers navigate through your content with ease. Our zoom function really zooms in so even the smallest content is readable.
We offer the best customer service. Compare us with our competitors at https://www.g2crowd.com or https://www.trustpilot.com. There are a few decent companies, but there also are a lot of murky ones out there. We are one of the few who offer actual support - very few of our competitors have chat, and we suggest to try and contact them over phone or email.
We offer the option to self-host publications and have a product dedicated to that. Many of our competitors do not offer self hosting, and when they do, take a look at their price tag for that plan, and see if they are still cheaper on a long term horizon.
Our publications are GDPR compliant. Most of our competitors don't mention this at all, and if they do, then they talk about how they handle YOUR data in a GDPR compliant way, but say nothing about how the publications themselves relate to GDPR.
All that takes a lot of people and time. So that's why we may be a bit more expensive.
Detailed info about some competitors
Mostly Flash based, horrible HTML5 quality, looks like they stopped development, untrustworthy company https://www.trustpilot.com/review/flipbuilder.com
|ISSUU||Text quality is the only one who can somewhat compare to ours, but they have problem pages:
No table of contents, no notes, zoom doesn't zoom much. We have several clients coming from them, who complain that their CS is non-existent.
|Flipsnack||Company itself is actually decent, but their quality cannot compare to ours: try the zoom button in standard (non-full screen) mode. You will understand why this is disabled by default. You need to view full screen and even then it's blurry.
No ToC - can you imagine how readers navigate through 100+ page documents?
|Text quality is again very poor. Their examples don't show this, they focus on all king of flying images. But try to print one of their examples... most of the content isn't there, and pages are often spread onto 2 pieces of paper. If you look at a more representative example of a converted PDF http://fliphtml5.com/examples/dci/index.html#p=1 , or http://static.fliphtml5.com/web/demo/goto-meeting/index.html#p=2 then you see that text is very poor. If you try to download the gotomeeting or any other publications that have download enabled, it doesn't work. Printing all pages gives just 1 empty page.|
Again, text quality falls short - compare the magazine examples to ours.
Again, No ToC, no Notes. Yes, they have a free version with ads. But when you want an actual version, their prices are similar to ours, and the results are worse.
