New York and London, November 3, 2016 – Amnet Systems has inked a deal with Kezban Media and Publishing to market an online library platform combined with digital rights management services to publishers and libraries, further enhancing the company’s technology capabilities for digital assets.
Publishers will be able to host all or parts of their library on the platform; libraries can curate specific content collections to be offered to their members. Currently the platform has over 200 library subscribers in Europe, serving over five million members.
