Share this on social media:

Panworld Education has selected Ingram’s VitalSource Bookshelf platform to power e-textbook solutions for its customers throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions.

'Leading universities in the Middle East and North Africa, and countries represented by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), are transitioning to all-digital curriculums, and we are pleased with the ongoing adoption and growth of e-textbooks,' said Gaurav Parwanda, chief executive officer, Panworld Education. 'Educational institutions are looking to provide their students with digital content that can be accessed anywhere, anytime and securely, and the VitalSource Bookshelf platform is the right solution for us to help our customers do that.'

The VitalSource Bookshelf platform is expected to provide Panworld Education with comprehensive tools to sell and deliver e-textbooks to its customers without costly infrastructure investments. Panworld Education maintains publisher and institutional relationships, content, contracts, orders and financial management, while orders are fulfilled through the VitalSource platform. Panworld Education's e-textbook solution is now available to institutions throughout the Middle East. It launched this summer with its first customer in Dubai.
