Atypon Systems, Inc. and EBSCO Online, Inc. today announced that Atypon has acquired the Metapress business from EBSCO Online, Inc., which has made the decision to discontinue the Metapress platform. Atypon and EBSCO will work together to transition Metapress clients to Atypon’s Literatum platform. Under the terms of the agreement, Metapress will continue to service its current clients through the transition.
“Atypon’s leading platform Literatum meets the complex and evolving needs of over 200 professional and scholarly publishers worldwide, and it will be a strong fit for Metapress’s clients,” said Georgios Papadopoulos, CEO and Founder of Atypon. “We look forward to helping the Metapress customers take advantage of our innovative technology to drive their business strategies and increase user engagement.”
“We are excited to work with Atypon on this transition,” said Vicki Denmark, President, EBSCO Publishing and Digital Media Group. “We believe our clients will experience a high level of service from the Atypon platform. We will work with Atypon to deliver a smooth transition of our customers’ content and subscribers.”
