Proofreading, Copy Editing, and Quality Control Services

MARCOA is a Total Quality Management organization. In place are many quality control measures to ensure proper control of the final publication’s quality and timeliness, in accordance with the mutually agreed upon production schedules established. Based upon extensive experience and range of publications, MARCOA has refined and adjusted how we check and double-check each major step in the layout, design, proofreading, and printing phases of each project.

We have an in-house oversight committee, which meets every day to review all current publications. At this time, any part of a project which is not on schedule for some reason is addressed with solutions agreed upon for follow up action. During all of our projects, MARCOA operates with time lines, production schedules, and internal quality control checklists. Plus, the customer is involved in the quality control program at many different points of the publishing process.
