RALEIGH, N.C., May 2, 2006 - VitalSource Technologies, a leading enabler of digital textbooks and other curricular materials, today announces the launch of VitalSource P2. P2 is a secure online resource that simplifies the process of creating, managing and distributing digital assets.
P2 has been Beta tested by several leading educational publishers and distributors since July 2005. Since then, participating publishers have managed the delivery of over 50,000 textbooks to students and faculty.
Publishers now have a seamless and intuitive end-to-end system for digital content delivery. They work directly through VitalSource Certified Partners to efficiently convert content into VitalBook versions. Once converted, VitalBooks are ready for the publisher to package, apply business rules and distribute through the channels of their choice. P2 gives publishers complete control and flexibility over their digital content and can be easily integrated with existing inventory and e-commerce systems.
Publishers and distributors have been using P2 in a number of ways. Some have used P2 to make individual products available for sale. Others have used the resource to create packaged sets of content, to distribute evaluation copies, or for nontraditional and custom publishing.
