[prMac.com] Gothenburg, Sweden - ExcelStories are thrilled to announce the iBooks Author Conference Award finalist - Profitable Growth - Business Finance for Everyone written by Author Jan-Olof Andersson, Olle Edsbacker, and Anders Nyby. The iBook has been in production for over three years and was released in time for the nomination to the iBooks Author Conference Awards.
"We are very proud to be nominated in two categories, 2016 iBook of the Year Non-fiction overall and as Creative of the Year," say the co-author and iBooks Author designer Anders Nyby.
The book is based on a popular paperback book published in 2002 by a Swedish publishing house. The iBook makes extensive use of custom made interactive elements and widgets found in the incredible easy to use Apple OS X software iBooks Author. It explains and makes practical use of financial theories and concepts that are important for a growing company. The iBook is perfect for nonfinancial employees looking for deeper understanding of profitable growth.
Additional tools have been used to produce the interactive content in the book: iMindMap for Mind Maps and Fly Overs, iMovie for video content, Microsoft Excel 2016 for how to calculate lessons and summary cases, KeyNote for narrated animations and presentations, ScreenFlow for screen recordings, OmniOutliner Pro for creating structure, Automator and Script Debugger for workflows, Acorn for image adjustments and iAds Producer for video widgets. "Finally we used XCode to develop a free iPhone App - Key Figures - as a complementary reference and companion tool to the book," says Anders Nyby.
Profitable Growth - Business Finance for Everyone offers a wealth of interactive learning content, along with an entertaining method that makes learning enjoyable. Contents of the book include: 12 video flyovers, 15 interactive illustrations, 40 narrated animated illustrations, 30 lessons on how to calculate with spreadsheet formulas, 16 mind maps, 11 summary presentations, 10 cases, 10 quizzes, and a glossary containing 27 key figure definitions.
"The brilliant iBooks Author software made the iBook Profitable Growth - Business Finance for Everyone and the iBooks Author Conference Award nomination possible. The Apple tool is probably the best eBook creation technology available on any platform right now," says Anders Nyby
The iBooks Author Conference Award winners will be announced at 5 PM Thursday, October 6, at the 2016 iBooks Author Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
