Easypress Technologies Selected as a Preferred Supplier for Association of Canadian Publishers(September 30, 2010)
Easypress Technologies has been selected as a preferred eBook creation service for members of the Association of Canadian Publishers (ACP) who participate in ACP's Canadian Publishers Digital Services. The unique Easypress EasyEPUB software will now be available to the 125 publishers within the ACP, enabling them to easily convert a range of different file formats into eBooks within a matter of minutes and from the comfort of their own desk.
The ACP is the voice of the Canadian-owned and –controlled publishing industry, whose members publish the vast majority of Canadian-authored titles. With its Canadian Publishers Digital Services, ACP also plays an important role in providing publishers with access to services, information and training, as well as sales opportunities that will allow them to take full advantage of the eBook market. Through this offering, ACP members can use EasyEPUB's ground-breaking technology to convert their books from Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress and MS Word into the internationally recognised IDPF EPUB standard. This standard is compatible with all the leading eBook readers including Apple IPAD, iPhone, Sony PRS Reader, Kobo and Barnes & Noble Nook.
EasyEPUB's straightforward online web-based service allows publishers to create eBooks in minutes, while giving them the flexibility to create custom fonts and styles to allow mass formatting and editing of eBooks in a single theme. This makes it easy to convert entire catalogues at the click of a button.
James Macfarlane, CEO of Easypress Technologies said: "This is a wonderful opportunity, and we are looking forward to working with the ACP and their members, helping them quickly create their eBooks such that they can benefit from the exponential growth of the emerging eBook market. There is now increasing demand from publishers wanting to create eBooks quickly and easily and EasyEPUB provides publishers with a fast and efficient way to convert their front-list books and back catalogues in a few simple steps."
Diana Barry, Director of Digital Services for the Association of Canadian Publishers said: "We were impressed with the simplicity and ease-of-use of EasyEPUB. The unique automated process will offer our members and affiliates an attractive option among the many available on the market.”
