MEDIA RELEASE: For immediate release
London, UK (29 July 2011) – Ebook Services, leading provider of digital sales and marketing services for book publishers, is delighted to welcome Princeton University Press to its fast-growing fold of clients.
Princeton University Press has selected Ebook Services’ Digital Comps system to manage its review and inspection copy distribution requirements.
The Digital Comps system enables publishers to easily market and distribute their titles in digital form. The end user receives a voucher code and uses the code to access their DRM protected ebook in a bookshelf branded with the publisher’s own look, colour scheme and logo providing the publisher with complete ownership and management of the system and its customers.
The system provides an administrative portal for the publisher to manage voucher code distribution to existing and potential customers through promotions or to handle requests from potential customers and reviewers.
As well as providing a simple and robust solution the Digital Comps system is great for publishers who may not have the resources to deploy their own ebook fulfilment solutions with no upfront or annual maintenance fees in a matter of days.
For a minimal fee per voucher redeemed, there is next to no risk and the promise of significant and immediate savings, compared with traditional hardcopy distribution methods for inspection and review copies.
Ebook Services’ Director, Suzanne Cole said, ‘We’re delighted to be working with Princeton University Press to provide a fully branded version of our Digital Comps system.
‘Princeton’s marketing and publicity teams are brimming with innovative, astute and creative people and we’re very excited to see how they are going to put the system to use.
‘Princeton University Press has a reputation for excellence in scholarly and trade publishing, there was real celebration when we heard that they were signing. I’m sure that our Digital Comps system will help the Princeton team to bring new efficiencies and initiatives to their business.’
Priscilla Treadwell, Princeton University Press’ Digital Sales Director said, ‘We’ve been looking for a user-friendly, elegant solution for providing electronic comp copies to professors and book reviewers, and are delighted to have found it in this excellent service from Ebooks Corporation.’
