From PDF To Professional Publishing Quality ePUB 3 Under 1 Hour: Introducing Silk Evolve

There are many companies/products in the market that claim to have an automated solution, but these fall short in the aspect of quality and ability to handle complex books. Often, the generated ePUB needs hours of manual correction. This manual correction requires skilled people who are adept at handling HTML & CSS coding. Silk Evolve produces professional grade ePUB 2 or ePUB3 books which very rarely require any further tweaking.
