Record month for Ingram Digital

Share this on social media:

Ingram Digital has announced a record month for its e-book fulfillment operations. The number of e-books downloaded through Ingram Digital’s Retail Solutions in March 2008 surpassed the previous record by 50 percent.

This performance confirms the current upward trend in e-book consumption. By providing online retailers with access to one of the largest digital libraries of sellable content, Ingram Digital has enabled customers to fully capitalise on these opportunities by offering a large and varied inventory, as well as a seamless buying experience.

‘Ingram Digital has accumulated a vast knowledge of the e-book business, first through sister company Lightning Source and later through our own suite of e-book-focused services,’ commented Andrew Weinstein, vice president and general manager of Ingram Digital Retail Solutions. ‘As the needs of retailers and publishers evolve to include e-book commercialisation, we continue to improve upon our technology infrastructure to meet those needs. Today, we are ideally positioned to serve publishers seeking to increase their presence in the digital marketplace without making the heavy investment necessary to build that capability in house.’
