What is Adobe DPS?

In short, DPS (Digital Publishing Suite) is a set of tools that allow rich media content to be created and delivered to mobile devices in the form of an App. DPS has almost limitless potential. It’s highly customisable through design and interactivity therefore completely tailored to your objectives.
In a NutShell: it is an electronic publishing and distribution workflow process, transforming printed material into an interactive digital medium (app) seamlessly and easily. It then becomes a powerful distribution channel, pushing customised apps to both Apple & Android devices.


For the large Enterprise, the distribution methods allow secure channels of distributing content to devices based on user enterprise IDs and login details.

For us creatives, we don’t need coding ability. That means less time on building, and more time on designing an engaging user experience. We can easily integrate user interaction with the content, so instantly audiences have the ability to immerse themselves in the content and engage, share and interact within the device without having to deviate from your key messages.
