Press Release: ePubDirect Launches new Worldwide Ebook Platform
November 3, 2014, New York. - ePubDirect, the fastest growing ebook company in the market, have announced the release of their new platform. Bringing together innovative technology, brand new analytics, and the company's in-depth knowledge of the international ebook marketplace, the platform was released to all current ePubDirect customers today. Now it is dramatically easier for publishers to spot opportunities and optimise their sales performance worldwide.
"The best just got better" said Gareth Cuddy, ePubDirect CEO. "Publishers who want to explore new markets and boost revenues will finally have a clear view of their global digital sales." ePubDirect offers incredibly powerful analytical tools and reports, which makes it easier than ever to stay on top of expanding ebook markets. "The good news today is that many publishers are finding significant sources of new revenue," added Cuddy, "but until now they haven't had the data they need, when they need it, to make the most of these opportunities."
At a time when traditional print markets are flat or in decline, global ebook markets make it possible for publishers to reach new customers in a growing number of online storefronts around the world. Since 2013, ePubDirect customers experienced on average 12% growth in sales month on month, in stark contrast to an overall flat market. Fast and easy access to market data is essential to evaluate the effect of promotions, price changes, and improvements in product metadata. Publishing sales managers, marketers, and executive leadership can all take advantage of advanced analytics to drill down by territory, retailer, or product line to see how their titles are performing at a glance.
