IOS Press signs deal with ACCUCOMS for representation in Turkey

    STM publisher IOS Press has signed an exclusive agreement with ACCUCOMS for sales representation in Turkey. ACCUCOMS now represents IOS Press in Turkey, Italy and the USA. The representation services provided by ACCUCOMS include customer service and sales activities such as lead research, site visits, product demonstrations and license negotiations with individual institutions, large corporations, multi-nationals and consortia.

    Popke Huizinga, Sales/Deputy Director at IOS Press: “This new agreement in Turkey provides us with a concentrated sales and marketing presence in a fast-growing economy. ACCUCOMS has local knowledge and extensive market experience, which allows us to further raise our profile in this increasingly important country. We were looking for a partner who not only strengthens our relationships with existing customers and communicates with all customers in their native language, but also generates new business by expertly navigating the Turkish market. Based on our experiences with ACCUCOMS we are confident they can help us achieve our goals.”

    Pinar Erzin, Managing Director of ACCUCOMS: “Our cooperation with IOS Press so far has been very successful. ACCUCOMS sales representatives in Italy and the US are currently in negotiations with academic institutions, government agencies, societies and pharmaceutical companies. There is a worldwide market for IOS Press’s scientific and medical titles, so international sales representation for IOS Press is a rewarding job. Our team in Turkey has immediately started providing high-quality customer service and boosting sales for IOS Press’s journals, books and e-products.”
