Our products are being used in 85 countries globally, by more than 50 sectors, and over 100 different industry groups to date. 90% of all products sold are exported.

Markcheck's products are reference tools, that are content driven and comprehensive handbooks, in checklist format, that address specific topic areas, to meet customer needs. They cover key issues and items to be considered and actioned. These tools enable people to focus on organizing programs, projects, events and special activities.

Markcheck Publishing is owned and operated by business entrepreneur Mark Hiltz. Mr. Hiltz has developed and organized the knowledge based, internationally recognized, information products. These products have been developed over a significant period of time. The work involves establishment of a framework, extensive research and information collection from many sources, reading and reviewing, selecting and organizing the information, formulating and developing checklists, and editing and packaging into a format that provides useful information for our customers.

Our products take the worry out of guessing what has to be done by enabling users to undertake activities in an organized, sequential and methodical manner that ensures success. Our products challenge you to think about what you have to do and the questions you need to ask. Markcheck asks, "Have you forgotten anything?" This results in saved time, increased productivity and improved confidence in critical decision making. Important elements are never forgotten and costly errors are avoided. The products are comprehensive, flexible, user friendly, and offer a wide array of choice and selection. They are unique and different from other publications available.

The publications are available in electronic form (CD-ROM or diskette). They are unique and generic enough to appeal to many different sectors and professions. These include corporations, governments, business services, small businesses (SOHO-small office, home office), institutions, media and entertainment, associations, community and interest groups, information resellers and individuals.
