“I was astounded by the ease of getting content into Tizra… I could load a book in a matter of minutes. I was used to eBook conversions taking 2-6 weeks.”
“We evaluated 12 different vendors, and I was afraid we were going to have to settle for a product that fell far short of meeting our requirements. We had a long wish list of features and no one came close to nailing all of them until we found Tizra.”

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), is the preeminent provider of musculoskeletal education to orthopaedic surgeons and medical professionals around the world. The academy has had an active publishing program since the 1950s, and now produces a wide range of scientific and medical educational materials in print and electronic formats. These publications are a central part of the organization’s mission.
In 2013, AAOS began a complete review of its publishing workflow, which included a search for a new digital publishing platform vendor. Driven by new strategic goals developed by its Board of Directors, AAOS sought ways to speed up the pace of content production while maintaining quality, making content delivery more flexible, and improving ease of use. AAOS exhaustively researched the vendor landscape, formally evaluating 12 eBook platforms, and reviewing several others in a selection process that extended over a period of about a year.
