As we look back on 2017 it is fair to say that it’s been another year of immense change in the publishing industry, and at ESco.
As well as growing our digital services, we have also taken on a number of new clients including the already mentioned Anthem Publishing and Agile Media.
In the second half of the year, we welcomed three additional publishers into the ESco stable and have successfully bedded them into our subscriptions management and digital teams.
Moneywise Publishing – who publish two flourishing consumer magazines covering the areas of finance, pensions and investments. Money Observer and Moneywise Magazine were migrated on to our systems during September and are now being handled by our experienced subscriptions team. As part of the migration, we also created a new eCommerce shop to take all of their online orders.
Croner – in September, Croner launched an enhanced HR-inform service to support the HR community, building on the solution already available from the CIPD. Our teams were significantly involved in the re-launch of HR-inform, including the configuration of a new eCommerce platform to take paid orders for HR-inform as well as building a new bespoke API to facilitate access to the HR content behind a paywall. Making the use of ESco's specialist Corporate Subscriptions team, Croner are investing heavily in the sales and marketing of HR-inform and it is great to be a support to their sales team to expedite significantly increased revenue.
Sundial Magazines – migrating to us in September, Sundial Magazines publish very successful special interest magazines including Classic Tractor and Mercedes Enthusiast. All six magazines are now bedded into our teams with a brand new eCommerce site, and we’re already looking forward to ways in which we can help to grow their subscriptions in 2018.
