Gutenberg Technology and VitalSource announce technology collaboration

BOSTON, March 14, 2017 Publishers now have a simple tool to create and distribute interactive content, thanks to a new collaboration between Gutenberg Technology Inc., an industry-leading, cloud-based tools creator for educational content, and VitalSource Technologies LLC, an Ingram Content Group company and leading educational technology provider.

With the new integrated technology, publishers have a solution to develop EPUB 3 content in Gutenberg's MyEContentFactory 7.0 and publish directly into the VitalSource Bookshelf platform for distribution.

"There is a critical need for content creation tools for reuse and publication to all channels for publishers," said Gjergj Demiraj, Deputy CEO of Gutenberg Technology. "Our collaboration with VitalSource will empower publishers to use our authoring tool to place content into Bookshelf for use by higher-education institutions."

The technology solution will be available June 1 and will enable publishers to affordably deliver customized content for students with an efficient workflow. VitalSource and Gutenberg Technology are currently recruiting launch partners for the initial release.
