Accucoms secures a KERIS (The Korea Education and Research Information Service) academic license deal for PressReader
“PressReader is pleased to see the progress of the KERIS consortium, which we have joined from 2021. It has brought, and will continue to bring, many opportunities for PressReader to introduce its values and benefits to the larger number of members of KERIS. It has been a great pleasure to work with Accucoms especially on this project as their expertise in understanding the market and industry made this project successful.
It was, particularly, a meaningful opportunity for all since we were aware of the difficulties of the academic libraries in Korea in selecting the resources due to the budget limitation on the resources they can subscribe to. Now that PressReader is offered to the member academic libraries through the KERIS consortium, it certainly is more accessible with the special rates offered to the member academic libraries and the funding from KERIS. As a result, it allows us to deliver our values to more academic libraries and more importantly to help them get engaged and connected to the world through the quality content and reading experience we offer. We have connected to a considerable number of new academic libraries through the KERIS consortium and are thrilled to see further growth in the coming years”. Hyeyeon Jeon, Market Development Manager, PressReader
“Working together with PressReader I am delighted that we have been able to secure a KERIS academic license deal. Although PressReader has had a presence in South Korea for a number of years with over 20 academic customers, this is the first deal with KERIS. Accucoms has strong relationships in South Korea and this has been instrumental in assisting PressReader in this market. I am very excited at what’s to come in the future for PressReader here in South Korea”. SeongHwi Jeon, Commercial Manager South Korea, Accucoms
