Verge Integrates Ecommerce and Digital Publishing

intro verge ipad

Our Ecommerce sponsor, Zmags, has released a new digital publishing viewer. Verge™ allows companies to convert their PDFs (and other content) into a viewer where they can overlay data, images, video, and even their ecommerce platform. The viewer can be deployed on desktop, mobile and tablet through a simple management platform.

This is quite an advancement in digital publishing, allowing companies to build interactive and engaging experiences where they can sell directly. In the past, a company could distribute its magazine or brochure but had to rely on the reader coming back to the online store to make the purchase. This new interface allows the company to add hotspots for purchase information and even allows them to package several products together.
