In a world that is rapidly going digital, publishers and learning providers who largely depended on the printed word a few years back are now intent on spreading their content through various channels online. Although the Internet has made it easier to access learning and digital content, it has also made it harder for the content creators to post their best content online consistently. This situation has called for the services to be created for content curation and propagation that would best help these content creators deliver their best content online. Impelsys is one such enabler which uses SaaS to deliver the best digital content and learning solutions to global publishers, education providers and enterprises.
With a vision that goes beyond convention, Impelsys came into being in 2001. Based out of New York the company was founded by Sameer Shariff with the aim of making the world a better place by helping spread knowledge through technology. Impelsys provides its customers media services, technology services, and platforms that help them with marketing, selling and delivering digital content, media, and online learning swiftly and effectively.
When the company started out, they focused on textbook publishers. The company produced CDs that accompanied textbooks and scanned hard copies during this initial phase. But soon the company started offering ancillary content services for the publishing industry. And there was no turning back from here on. The company subsequently started developing web applications and then started a content delivery platform which allowed the publishers to deploy their content on their own.
World's Most comprehensive Read to Learn Platform
Impelsys launched its iPublishCentral platform for the content creators. Since its launch, many of its customers have found a comprehensive way to deliver their digital content online for sales and delivery directly to their B2Band B2C consumers without any hassles.
