- (1888PressRelease) January 14, 2012 - London - BJU Press, a leading Christian education publisher, has launched an eBook platform using an eContent hosting product developed by MPS Limited. The eBooks are available as IWB modules via MPS' flagship content transformation tool, MediaSuite, which also makes them available in VBK and PDF formats.
Working with MPS Limited, BJU Press was looking for a solution to enhance the reading experience of their customers while expanding access to BJU Press content. As part of the overall solution, BJU Press wanted to make their textbooks available in more formats and channels, including mobile devices and interactive whiteboards (IWB). The publisher also required a distribution and sales platform to host their material.
MPS created the IWB versions of each book using its flagship content transformation platform, MediaSuite. The team then customized MPS' popular eContent platform to meet the specific needs of BJU Press, including the ability to host the IWB Flash files. BJU Press' books are also available in VBK format, thanks to MPS' conversion team, on the Ingram Content Group's VitalSource bookshelf.
Rajiv K. Seth, MD and CEO of MPS Limited, commented: "We are delighted to have been able to put our experience in educational content to good use in helping BJU Press fulfill their content transformation and distribution objectives."
"Our sales representatives are excited about this initiative," says JoEllen DeLuca, manager of BJU Press Marketing Communications. "MPS has provided us with a product that surpassed our expectations and suits the needs of our market. We look forward to seeing our eTextbooks used in schools and homes all over the country."
