Welcome to the EDAPT™ page of Accurance
E-book Distribution Adaptive Priority Technique, or EDAPT™ for short, is the name of the system Accurance uses to effectively bring e-books, whether from independent authors or well-established publishers, to the attention of the audience that matters: the buying public.
With EDAPT™, you can say we put your e-books up for sale not just on one but five of the biggest marketplaces that matter today for e-books: Apple, Amazon, Sony, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo. More than 90% of e-book sales in the market today, occur through these five retailers.
And, as if that is not enough, you can also look at our EDAPT™ system as a kind
of portal that lets you see how your *goods* are doing in the marketplace, as it
allows you to track the sales and royalty payments of your e-books—all 24/7 at
that. Now, you need not sweat or lose sleep again from the helpless feeling of
having no control over your created materials competing for the readers’ wallets
across time zones.
How did we ever come up with such beauty, you ask?
For starters, Accurance is not a newbie in the global publishing business. In fact, it is an understatement to say that we have been here throughout the time that the publishing world transitioned from its analog precursors to the digital one we are now seeing taking all over the world. Since 1999, Accurance has done more than 130,000 projects for over 40,000 titles, and produces more than 10,000 e-books, covers, formatted interiors, edited manuscripts, and reclaimed paper books per year.
Mind you, we have done them all—formatting, editing, book cover design, publishing setup, etc.—in analog and digital formats.
Hence, what we do now are the fruits of a vast and in-depth experience in the publishing arena. And what we learned, we now pass on to you as a service that is hardly matched, if at all, by anyone else in the industry.
Accurance was the very first multi-publisher e-book distribution aggregator for INgrooves/Inscribe, one of the five Apple Worldwide Certified E-book Distribution Aggregators for Apple. Accurance was instrumental, in fact, in the collaborative design and writing of some of the core fee structures that enable the author, and small- and midsize- publishers to enter the e-book market for little or no upfront costs.
INgrooves/Inscribe is one of the largest music distributors for iTunes and the primary distribution manager for several global music content providers. Apple in fact invited them to become one of their Worldwide Certified e-book distribution managers. As a result, Accurance EDAPT clients are often the behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the fact that our partner usually knows early information on industry changes, and of discounts INgrooves has been able to negotiate with some major retailers on our behalf, and also has been a major player in new-technology distribution industry explosion before.
