Following the success of a conference on eBooks that Kirjavälitys held in September, major publishers joined the project in order to launch their eBook offerings in the New Year. Content will be available in PDF and ePub formats and the site will operate in both Finnish and English to make it accessible to a wide international market.
MPS will provide all participating publishers with a complete solution that includes conversion to ePub and secure DRM, as well as content hosting, eCommerce, and distribution through MPS’ eBook hosting platform, ContentStore.
The project went live on 3rd November with a few key titles and will be fully up and running by the end of January.
Rajiv Seth, MD and CEO of MPS, commented: “Kirjavälitys’ online platform looks set not only to add momentum to the spread of eBooks in Finland but also to help make Finnish literature available to a wider audience. We are delighted to be a part of this exciting project.”
Tuula Pelkonen-Tiri, Service Director of Kirjvälitys, added: “Kirjavälitys perceives that cooperation with MPS is a great opportunity to launch supply, distribution, and sales of the digital content to the Finnish market.”
