HighWire, Powered by MPS

More than 2,700 professionals power MPS across seven delivery centers in India, four offices in Europe, and six client-servicing offices in the US.

  • Stability – HighWire has moved under the umbrella of a leading content and publishing solutions institution. This brings with it long-term commitment and, most importantly, a passion for the publishing industry.
  • Strategy – We now embrace custom as an enabler rather than a blocker to our customer partnerships.
  • Synergies – The complementary capabilities between MPS and HighWire ensure that the combination is greater than the sum of parts and more efficient.
