Financial Post article Fintek, a financial services startup, published a new book format for writing manuscripts.
The format is called “the book manuscript,” which it says is the “next logical step” to publish a book or other manuscript in print.
The company says the format has already been used to publish books for more than 200 years.
Fintek says its book manuscript model is based on the book as an object and can be used for everything from business plans to contracts.
The technology is “a great complement to the paper book format,” the company says on its website.
Finance industry experts say the format makes sense for the financial industry, since it provides the same functionality to both written and oral communication.
“It’s a good way to communicate in writing,” says Tim Lehrman, an associate professor of finance at the University of Michigan.
“I think it’s a great tool to have in the financial ecosystem.”
Fintecks technology is also used by other financial companies, such as Amazon, where it’s used to make payments to book publishers.
Lehrman says the book manuscript is a great fit for digital publishing, since the company’s software allows publishers to share content and track book sales and sales receipts.
“The book manuscript can be the most efficient way to do the same thing,” he says.
Fantastic format, but will we use it in real life?
Lehrmen says Finteks book manuscript doesn’t have the same value as a traditional book, since there’s no proof of the author’s identity.
But, he adds, “it’s certainly a nice way to get a novel in front of a broader audience.”
Lehrmen is excited about the company.
“This is a big deal for Finteks.
They’ve been doing this for more or less a decade,” he said.
Fiducial, an online marketplace for financial services, is using the format as well.
The platform also uses a book as a physical object to track sales.
“There’s a lot of benefits to the book being a book and a physical thing,” Fantuca says on the Fiducious website.
“As far as we’re concerned, it’s just a physical book that can be shared with anyone.”
Fiduciary is another financial services company using the book manuscripts format, which Lehrmans says “seems to be a very popular way to publish.
We’re excited to see what this format has to offer in the future.”

Fiduca uses a similar format for financial bookkeeping.
The FiduCoBook is a book that is not a physical product.
“If you’re selling a physical version of your book, you need to be prepared to get some proofs from a reputable publisher,” says Fidus’ Ryan Nisbet, Fiduelico’s director of marketing.
“Book publishing has always been a great format for publishing, because it provides a more structured, professional, transparent way for the publishing industry to work.”
Fiduccious also uses the book to track book and contract sales, as well as to make credit card payments.
Fido, another financial service company, has used the format for a decade to track the financial health of its users.
The process, known as a “Fido Book,” allows users to track financial health, the amount of money they have available, the interest rates they’re paying, and the amount they’re making.
“I think book publishing has definitely grown over the last decade, and I think it still has a place,” says Jason Zaleski, founder of Fido.
“We think book printing has really been the way to go, but you can do it on paper as well.”
Zaleski says the Fido Book format works for most users, but not everyone wants to use it.
“People might want to use a different kind of format, so they don’t have to worry about the privacy of their data,” he adds.
Fidenix, another online financial services firm, uses the FidenBook format for tracking the financial status of its customers.
Its software lets customers create a digital file, and then it stores that file on a computer.
Zalesky says customers are able to track their finances, including their spending and income, for free.
“So, there’s really no real difference between book and digital publishing,” he explains.
