Cat’s Pajamas Support


Please send an email to for Cat's support items.

The Cat's Pajamas publishing softwareThe Cat's Pajamas is a software suite designed to streamline accounting functions in the book publishing and magazine publishing industry. For more than 30 years, the Cat's Pajamas system of integrated programs has nimbly responded to changes in the publishing industry and has increased productivity of its client publishers. In 2007, Media Services Group acquired the rights to the Cat's Pajamas product and has continued to support its valued customers. However, in 2007 Media Services Group launched a next generation product, Élan Book Solution. The Élan Book product provides a full spectrum of integrated features designed specifically to meet the increasing needs of publishers and operates as part of a larger suite of publishing software.
