Publishing Industry

With NetIS, Publishers are able to establish their own B2C business and have everything run from one operation. Publishers can build they own brand as a player in the digital world, collect and analyze crucial information about their customers and keep the 100% of income for themselves. Publishers can upload their books and respective metadata and allow users to purchase electronic, print and Print on Demand edition of their books or a combination of both – digital & print. NetIS is provided with NetIS Reader, a native application that was developed to enable accessing content on tablets, desktop computers and mobile devices. NetIS Reader can be re-branded for each Publisher and prevents the unauthorized distribution of their ebooks. Furthermore, NetIS provides a unique solution to specifically sell books to universities. E.g.an University can subscribe to a subset of the books offered by a specific Publisher, allowing students to read online, without forcing the universities to subscribe to the whole books database. Even further, the number of pages that can be printed can be limited, making it an unreasonable hassle to pirate the books. NetIS can be also easily integrated with books inventory.
