Several Christian publishers, including David C Cook, R.H Boyd Publishing, Our Sunday Visitor, Abingdon Press and Worthy Publishing, have selected Ingram Content Group's (ICG) CoreSource products for the distribution, sales and management of e-books.
"The audience for digital books continues to grow," said Byron Williamson, CEO, president and publisher of Worthy Publishing. "With Ingram's proven CoreSource platform driving the distribution of our digital content, we have a comprehensive solution to reach more readers worldwide and make the most of our Christian and mainstream best-selling content in the formats that are in demand today."
David C Cook Director of Digital Content Michael Covington added: "Ingram's extensive network of retailers is a hand-in-glove fit for our distribution strategy, allowing us to expand both our domestic and global reach as we work to fulfill our mission of equipping the church with Christ-centered resources around the world."
"Distribution via CoreSource allows us to serve an expanding network of e-book retailers domestically, many of whom have been valued print book partners for many years, as well as international markets that truly allow us to go to 'the ends of the earth' with our content."
The latest publishers to select CoreSource join Thomas Nelson, Scripture Union and others, which are already using the Ingram platform for digital asset management and fulfillment from the companies' own websites.
"We are pleased to expand our work with Ingram, adding an important e-book distribution component alongside our use of Lightning Source print-on-demand," said Tammy Gaines, vice president of Abingdon Press. "Through our collaboration with Ingram, we leave the complexity of on-demand and digital distribution to the expert, while we focus our time and resources on creating the finest content for our readers."
CoreSource is touted as "an easy-to-use, online solution for the storage, management and distribution of digital content." ICG's Lightning Source is the leading provider of comprehensive print-on-demand and distribution services to publishers worldwide.
"Ingram continues to invest in the newest digital distribution solutions to support our customers and make their entry into the digital marketplace easier," said Marcus Woodburn, vice president of digital products for ICG.
