Welcome! We welcome Management Concepts to the Digital Comps fold!

Recent Developments:

  • It’s now easier for your customers to download your titles according to their preferred device rather than by file format, and
  • Searching in Digital Comps just became far more intuitive.

New Clients

We are pleased to announce and welcome Management Concepts, who have recently signed up for Digital Comps.

Downloading Made Easier

We have made it easier for users to download your titles. No longer do they need to know which format best suits them. They can now simply select the device they wish to read on, and our updated download pages will easily and intuitively guide them through the selection process to choose and install the necessary – if any – software required.

Your users will be up-and-reading in even less time and you’ll see fewer support queries: a better experience for you and your readers!

Search Optimisation

We recently upgraded our search engine in Digital Comps. This improved performance for you and your users also incorporates a more intuitive response to requests; for example, the system will now return results that correct common spelling errors.

We are constantly improving our systems and rely on your feedback to identify areas for improvement. Do not hesitate to contact us with your comments and suggestions.

It’s been a busy month, especially with the release of our new product, Ebook Engine. Orca Book Publishers signs up to Ebook Collections and the Editorial Department at Princeton University Press adapts Digital Comps to their own needs.

Sharing the Love

It’s gratifying to see our existing valued clients signing up for another of our products after integrating Digital Comps into their day-to-day work processes and sales and distribution strategies.

Award-winning independent children’s book publisher, Orca Book Publishers, has signed up for our EbookCollections system after coming on board with Digital Comps. Director of Digital Products, Melanie Jeffs said:

The MARC records, the download lending and the read-aloud function are features that our customers have been asking for. Combined with the ease of use, the Ebook Collections are a great solution for selling ebooks.

Princeton University Press’ Editorial Department Gets Creative with Digital Comps

We were thrilled to receive some feedback from our friends in the Editorial Department at Princeton University Press about their rather clever use of the Digital Comps system to provide authors with copies of their own ebooks.

I accessed my account and my (rather smart looking) ebook just fine. Thank you for setting this up, I’m rather flattered to be the first author to get this treatment…

The Digital Comps system is as versatile as you need it to be and we love to hear how you’re adapting it your needs.

Ebook Engine is Ready to Roll Out!

We’ve been working behind the scenes for months now to bring you, our valued partners, a new fulfilment solution allowing direct ebook sales from your own website. The sale takes place within your own ecommerce infrastructure, so you keep your customers on your site throughout the whole search, discovery and purchase process.

As with all of our products there are no upfront set-up costs or annual maintenance fees. It’s free to use and charges are only levied when an end user accesses your title for the first time.

If you are seeking a low cost solution to start selling your ebooks direct to your customers, contact us for more information and to arrange a free trial.
