The Road to Success
The laying of pipelines is a technically challenging business due to the nature of the products moving through these pipelines, the environments they cross and the laws of the countries they go through. IPLOCA has developed a technical "encyclopedia" of pipeline laying: The Road to Success. It wanted to convert it into a mobile app to make its use more practical for the field engineers and operators. This encyclopedia, constantly in development, was in 2016 more than 1'400 pages with graphs and pictures. Abonobo has developed a reader (available on all smartphones and tablets) that adds to the content of The Road to Success new functionalities such as content exchanges between users and review process.
There were two major challenges in this project: first, convert 1'400 pages of text with equations, graphs and pictures in format compatible with a reader even when offline; second, develop a reader with consumer functionalities and professional ones: communication between users; easy references, glossary. The conversion was done in two steps: from sources into InDesign, then into ePub format. The development has been possible thanks to Abonobo technical expertise.
