Since we announced Digital Publishing Suite, we’ve seen a tremendous interest from all parts of the publishing industry in creating publications for tablet devices. Through our prerelease program and in our customer meetings, we’ve listened to many of you on how to make the price point for Digital Publishing Suite accessible to a broader segment of publishers. I’m excited to report that we’ve lowered the platform fee from US$699/month to US$495/month with a required annual upfront purchase. With this new pricing, additional publishers will be able to use the tools and hosted services to transform print publications for tablet devices.
The Professional Edition of Digital Publishing Suite will be available later in Q2 2011, and is priced using a monthly platform fee + a per .folio download fee. Enterprise Edition shipped previously in March 2011, provides integration with backend publishing systems, and is available through a custom quote, which begins at US$50,000 annually.
