Product Development CaptiveCoE™ Setup for a Leading Global Publishing House

Trantor helped a leading American publisher to set up a CaptiveCoE™ in order to have a smooth global delivery model with updated technology & thorough processes.


The client is a leading US trade publisher and division of the world’s third-largest trade and educational book publisher. The client had an offshore partnership with their vendors; however, the client’s technology leadership was not happy due to the high turnover and handholding required by the US team. The client needed an offshore software consulting company with expertise in setting up dedicated technology and project management teams to scale capacity and establish processes for the successful global delivery model. The outsourcing partner was required to invest in customer success by ensuring zero to minimal attrition impact on the client’s business.
