June 20, 2016 – New York: American Diabetes Association, in their mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes, signed up with Impelsys, a leader in publishing and learning technology, to make their research and educational content available for institutional and retail users on a robust eBooks delivery infrastructure powered by iPublishCentral Ebooks.
American Diabetes Association, with a network of more than one million volunteers and memberships of more than 441,000 people with diabetes, supported by a professional society of nearly 16,500 healthcare professionals, funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes. The enormous body of valuable research and educational content generated by the association will be hosted on the portal and made available for members, institutions and other retail users.
The portal that will be developed on Impelsys’ flagship content delivery platform, iPublishCentral Ebooks will allow to set up institutional and retail access models with built-in DRM protection and will facilitate online and offline access of content across all devices (laptop, desktop, tablets and smartphones) through mobile reader and bookshelf apps.
On signing the contract, Abe Ogden, Associate Publisher, Books, American Diabetes Association conveyed, “We generate tremendous amount of content on prevention, cure and management of diabetes and it is imperative that this content is made available for institutions and individuals in need. We were evaluating the prospects of a technology partner to develop our own content delivery infrastructure. We felt Impelsys with their experience spanning over a decade of working with some of the leading publishers and professional associations of the world will help us in delivering this content effectively and efficiently.”
Sameer Shariff, CEO and Founder of Impelsys said “Today our platform and technology help more than 30 professional associations in making their research and educational content available for content consumers. We are thrilled of our partnership with American Diabetes Association and we believe this is another step towards our vision of making the world a better place by spreading knowledge through technology.”
