Impelsys, a global leader in providing electronic content delivery solutions, is powering the new Bowker ”Book as an Android App” with its iPublishCentral software platform.
“Book as an Android App” allows authors and small publishers to use Bowker’s www.myidentifiers.com to create Android-compatible e-book apps from any PDF or ePub document, opening new sales channels such as Google Play and the Amazon App Store.
“We’ve partnered with Bowker to make available to their customers a simple option for creating their own eBook app, which helps authors and small publishers better market their titles to potential readers,” said Sameer Shariff, founder and CEO of Impelsys. “In today’s new market for book sales, it’s crucial to have a digital strategy in place for how you will get your book electronically published, discovered and purchased by readers. The Bowker Book as an Android App showcases the flexibility of iPublishCentral for integration with existing solutions such as Bowker’s MyIdentifiers site.”
Bowker Identifier Services provides authors and small publishers with the resources that enable customers to find and purchase their books. After an author has written a book, www.myidentifiers.com provides the path to publish—through the assignment of ISBNs and barcodes—and sell the title through enhanced discovery.
