About

Open Book Systems, Inc. (OBS) is a publishing services company that has been in business continually since 1982. Beginning in desktop publishing, moving into proprietary code development in the 1990s, and finally focusing on merging traditional and digital publishing standards and workflows in the 2000s, OBS is flexible by definition and has continued to evolve alongside the ever-changing publishing industry. Combining an intimate knowledge of and respect for traditional publishing with an understanding of publishing technology from the ground up, OBS offers a uniquely valuable perspective on where publishing has been and where it’s going.

In 2013, OBS received official certification as a Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This WBE certification uniquely qualifies OBS to bid on state and federal contracts set aside for companies like ours.
