LM Information Delivery’s new book and e-book service a success with customers

LM Information Delivery, a leading global provider of subscription and information management services, has seen great success in the first few months since launching its dedicated book and e-book service “LM Books”.

The service, which was initially launched in the Netherlands, is suitable for all LM Information Delivery customers, including universities, colleges, medical institutions and companies of all sizes. Following the successful launch with Dutch customers, it was subsequently rolled out to customers in Belgium and Denmark, with further launches in other regions planned for 2019.

LM Books is designed with customers’ needs firmly in mind and is fully aligned with their technical and functional requirements. The platform also integrates seamlessly with eProcurement systems, such as SAP, ePrior and others, so that customers have full control over their workflows and spending at all times.

In the Netherlands, customers include the University of Leiden, who have appointed LM Information Delivery as preferred supplier for book orders for its employees. Staff can shop on the LM Books website and order books from their own Order Service Platform. By means of a link with the SAP administration of the university, invoicing is efficiently handled.

In addition, Eurojust in The Hague (an agency of the European Union) has chosen LM as the supplier of books and e-books for their library. Eurojust have also taken advantage of the possibility to integrate with their existing financial system, in this case with ePrior.

In neighbouring Belgium, The University Library of the Ministry of Defence in Evere selected LM for the delivery of both study books as well as books for their library collection. The textbooks are intended for internal courses that are offered to its employees and an extensive book collection is maintained for the library.

LM Information Delivery was also chosen by Karel de Grote College in Antwerp as sole supplier for their library books. The University has libraries at various locations and LM is delighted to partner with the institution to offer a collection that supports its student’s needs. As is the case with other book customer, librarians at Karel de Grote College can easily order books via the LM Books website where a link is provided to their procurement system.

Finally, in Denmark, the book service has been equally successful. LM Information Delivery is now supplying a large government agency as well as several private companies with textbooks for internal courses and books for their library collections, both in electronic and printed formats.

Juan Carlos Martín González, Chief Commercial Officer at LM Information Delivery said:

“We’re thrilled to see that our new service, LM Books, has been so well received in the Benelux countries and Denmark. The service is an obvious natural progression for LM Information Delivery and it’s clearly appreciated by our new and existing customers alike and we’re looking forward to rolling it out to more territories in 2019.”
