Online Info builds Digital Content delivery system in record time.

Online Info develops system to deliver Harvard School of Business Publishing (HSBP) content digitally to Universities and Higher Education Institutions.

LAD Custom publishing, a leader in custom course packs will begin delivering Course Packs digitally thanks to a digital delivery system developed by Online Info.

When LAD Custom Publishing needed a vendor to build a custom system to fulfill their role as a distribution partner with Harvard Business School Publishing, they sought out Online Info. With a short three month timeline and a huge opportunity at stake, LAD Custom Publishing selected Online Info to build an online application that would house 15000+ case studies from Harvard Business School Publishing and allow those case studies to be combined with custom content from other publications, then delivered to the student on-the-fly with Digital Rights Management (DRM).

The portal, located at www.eladcustompub.com, connects Professors and faculty members of educational institutions to the vast library of Harvard Business School Publishing. The simple one-two-three step process allows professors to search and select business cases add any other custom content by simply uploading it to the site. The content is then automatically bundled into a single PDF document and made available to students for purchase and download. Upon purchase by a student, the PDF of content is encrypted with digital rights management and locked to the student.

Lance Liggin, one of the co-founders of LAD custom publishing was happy with the outcome of the project due to the fact the project was ready to go live on the scheduled go live date and that the project was delivered under budget by about 20% of the projected cost.

While the project was in beta testing, a demo was done for Columbia University. The result of the demo was their first order, 4 days prior to go live.

Online Info is currently working on a new project for LAD that will be used internally by employees to better manage and process orders.
