Case Study: ASHP Revs up Ebook Sales by Switching to Tizra

"In the first few weeks on the Tizra platform, we have already sold more than the entire previous quarter, plus we aren't sharing our revenue anymore."
—Dean Manke, VP, Marketing & Sales, ASHP
When the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) got tired of sharing ebook revenue with its offshore epublishing vendor, it looked for a way to take greater control of its digital content publishing and sales. This search led to Tizra.

A critical factor behind the move was the need to achieve a seamless single sign-on integration with ASHP's existing Personify association management system, so that users would no longer have to juggle multiple usernames and passwords.

Additional requirements included:
  • Simple, intuitive user interfaces for readers… and ASHP publishing staff.
  • An affordable solution that eliminated revenue sharing.
  • Support for a wide range of sales models, including institutional sales, print/digital bundles, and flexible marketing promotions.
  • Superb customer service that eliminated the time-zone and other communication challenges of dealing with offshore support staff.
Tizra not only met these requirements, but did so on the tight schedule required to have ASHP up and running in time for its annual meeting.

"Not only did we have a new ebook site to show members, but we were able to start making sales at the meeting," says Manke.

In addition, ASHP now has hands-on control over the publishing process, provides users with a clean, custom-branded ebook experience, offers a single sign-on across its web presence, and is even able to get ebooks to market faster to coincide with—or even precede—the launch of print editions.  Download the case study to get the full story.
