Most submission systems are very rigid, forcing publishers to shape their workflow around the submission system, or worse, adopt onerous workarounds.


BenchPress offers you the ability to customize every aspect of the submission workflow, creating a submissions tool that exactly matches your desired outcomes.

Benchpress Unlimited

Developed for publishers with lower volumes and straight-forward submission processes, each BenchPress Unlimited site is independently configured to your needs. Plus, it can evolve as your publishing program grows.
