ePublishing, a provider of content management, e-commerce, and workflow solutions to publishers for almost three decades, has acquired long-time partner Multipub, which offers subscription-management solutions. ePublishing and Multipub have been supporting publishers together since 2014, says the company.
The merger, they added, enables the two companies to build better tools, including seamless user experiences, integrated fulfilment options, and increased revenue for B2B publishers, newspapers, and data providers.
The company says that entire Multipub team will remain with the business to continue to support clients’ growth and develop the product.
“We are pleased to welcome Multipub into the ePublishing family,” said ePublishing CEO Tom Chaffee. “Multipub has helped publishers grow for more than four decades. Combining Multipub’s products and expertise with our integrated suite of software and services furthers our mission to provide a unified, full-stack solution that drives revenue, improves productivity, and increases engagement for publishers.”
More than 700 users manage in excess of 500 publications and products in Multipub. The platform simplifies subscription management, allowing publishers of all types to manage orders seamlessly, and increase efficiencies with a 360-degree view of each customer, the company added.
“Over the years, we have worked with ePublishing to expand our system’s capabilities and better serve business-to-business publishers and newspapers. This merger is a natural extension of that collaboration and offers benefits to our clients, products, and employees,” said Multipub President and COO Lorna Fenimore. “Now, we can more easily support those desiring a single source for their best-of-breed technology stack, because our solutions work together without extensive integration efforts. We are excited about the opportunities ahead as we grow with one another.”
