What is Willo Reader?

In a nutshell: Willo Reader is a cloud-based distribution platform for ebooks. It allows your users to read, interact & search anytime, anywhere and with any device. And of course, ebooks are much more than text pages nowadays; they may contain videos, assessments, animations and all kind of interactive elements.

Willo Reader provides universal access to such ebooks via its browser-based EPUB3/PDF Reader and mobile applications while protecting the data using active and passive systems as well as management of digital rights such as authentication, authorization, and accounting.

Multiple business models are available, from unit sales to online subscriptions (for B2B/B2L/B2C users, libraries, education, aggregators or integrators).

And of course, cutting-edge features such as notes, sharing, highlights, thumbnails, and bookmarks are available for your subscribers.
