Kodelite develops secure eBook DRM service based on industry standard Adobe Content Server

Company Profile

Kodelite is a multinational software development company with offices in Turkey and USA focused on developing solutions for the publishing sector. As an official solution provider for the Adobe Content Server digital rights management (DRM) solution, Kodelite’s innovative and dynamic team are helping bookstore chains, publishers and authors all across the world with their secure eBook distribution and eCommerce needs.

Challenges

In discussions with eBook publishers, authors and resellers alike, Kodelite identified a common market problem: costly and timeconsuming eBook DRM systems were presenting barriers to secure digital publishing. Cited as a concern for Publishing Houses and Bookstore chains of all sizes, it was particularly the case with selfpublishers posting limited eBooks to their blogs; costly server software licenses and the need to setup and manage an IT infrastructure were not cost-effective models for many eBook publishers.

“We chose Datalogics because they provided comprehensive, friendly and quick support from the get-go, and we’ve been very happy to have them as our main supporter…”

Solution

Identifying an opportunity, Kodelite began development on an eBook DRM solution that was adaptable enough to meet the needs of small self-publishers but also scaled up to the demands of large publishing houses. Adobe Content Server proved to be the right technology for the task, now they just needed the right reseller. “We first heard of Datalogics through Adobe when the company was designated as a reseller for Adobe Content Server,” said Turgay Birand, Managing Partner at Kodelite. “We chose Datalogics because they provided comprehensive, friendly and quick support from the get-go, and we’ve been very happy to have them as our main supporter especially during the development and deployment periods of the project.”

In March 2012, after three months of development Kodelite launched its online service called EditionGuard, a secure and robust eBook DRM service providing publishers of all sizes with a cost-effective and easy to use DRM system without the usually large capital and time investments required. From small self-publishers distributing dozens of books to large publishing enterprises carrying thousands of books online, Kodelite’s EditionGuard solves the problems of secure digital delivery, content integrity and costly web integrations.

Results

In the first six months of its launch, EditionGuard has seen its customer base increase 150%, attracting attention worldwide with customers from the Americas, Europe and Asia. The eBooks protected via Kodelite’s service have grown considerably as well with many languages now available including English, Turkish, German, Spanish, Chinese and Hebrew. “We anticipate a great deal of growth in the adoption of our system in the coming months,” continued Birand, “and it’s good to know you always have a team of experts at Datalogics you can consult when times get difficult and you’re feeling stuck.”
