News from INMA World Congress in Paris
Good day Everyone!
Today at the International Newspaper Marketing Association (INMA) conference, NewspaperDirect made two exciting announcements.
Singapore’s The Straits Times has joined the hundreds of newspapers available in NewspaperDirect’s electronic distribution network (Print-On-Demand and PressDisplay.com). This announcement marks a special milestone: there are now 500 titles available, from 73 countries and in 38 languages.
“NewspaperDirect has the technology and global network to enable us to reach our readers — wherever and whenever they want access to their newspaper,” said Han Fook Kwang, editor of The Straits Times. “With NewspaperDirect, our overseas readers can enjoy either a rich online experience or a print product if that’s what they prefer.”
In just the first 3 months of this year, 77 titles have already been added. To be perfectly honest…since we wrote this PR, we’ve added another 20 titles – we’re really at 520 today from 74 countries. I just can’t keep up – we’ll hit 600 in no time!
And more great news for PressDisplay fans. We’re seeing widespread adoption by public libraries. Take a look at what’s happening in Finland – almost every library in the country has now installed the library version of PressDisplay.com.
“PressDisplay service has been a huge success among our clientele,” said Janne Järvinen, CEO of LehtiMarket Oy. “This new newspaper service has been well received within the academic and public libraries. It has been a valuable supplement to our conventional subscription management services.”
I’ll have more great news about Library PressDisplay for you shortly, so keep checking back…
