[prMac.com] Krakow, Poland – With PressPad’s active support, magazine publishers and authors are able to monetize their existing content on the Apple iOS Newsstand. Japan based D&E Corporation, with its CEO Hiromitsu Katsuta, is a leading provider of print and digital manuals and folders for OEMs in the local Japanese market. The company was established in 1980 and since then it has been closely cooperating with well-established global brands such as IBM Japan, Sony, HP, Cisco, SUN Microsystems and others.
Apple Newsstand launched in Japan in 2011 with about 150 titles supplied by major publishers. It is expected to grow rapidly, as it has done in the USA. D&E officials agree that “Today’s USA is Tomorrow’s Japan”.
The Japanese publishing market eagerly awaits for products that everyone can use easily without IT competence. Hiromitsu Katsuta, the CEO of D&E Corporation, confirmed that “current vendors in the Japanese market do not offer easy to use products with a low start-up costs. PressPad addresses this market need and fills this gap”.
Japanese publishers will have the opportunity to jump into digital publishing risk-free, with localized, social media integrated, beautiful magazine apps providing fantastic reading experience both on iPhone and iPad. For paid content the D&E will be offering magazine apps for free and bond their fee – up to 32000 YEN/month – with revenue generated by the apps.
Paul Nowak, PressPad CEO said, “PressPad believes in developing a long lasting relationships with D&E Corporation because only that way will it be possible to build real value, especially operating a business in such a different market, serving the specific needs of Japanese customer.”PressPad
