A pack is a collection of content you publish and distribute to users. Depending on your use case, packs may be workbooks, manuals, guides, tool boxes, client deliverables, or other resources. Pack content can include Word docs, PDFs, videos, PowerPoint decks, and more.
A distribution is the provision of one of your packs to one user. Any additional or future updates you wish to provide to the same user do not count as additional distributions. Every plan comes with free distributions and, once those are used, additional distributions cost $1 each.
One advantage of using the SharedBook platform is that you can easily import your existing content without having to reauthor it. Microsoft Word docs, PowerPoint presentations, PDFs, image and more can be uploaded and added to your library. Links to externally-hosted videos can also be included and, very soon, you will be able to upload and embedd them.
Absolutely. Our goal is to provide a secure digital/mobile publishing platform that scales with your needs. When you decide to publish more titles or wish to add more features, your account can be easily upgraded to whichever plan best fits your needs.
All content distributed through the SharedBook platform remains within our secure user environment. Instead of downloading files that can be e-mailed or saved and shared, users are provided an online/offline app environment from which they can consume your content on any mobile device, desktop, or laptop.
Your valuable intellectual property needs to be protected and secure. Files distributed through e-mail or other insecure methods (LMS/CMS) can be easily saved, shared, or stolen. And traditional paper formats can be lost, discarded or copied. SharedBook allows you to deliver to digital devices securely and gives you control at all times.
SharedBook provides multiple features that provide increased control. For example, you can distribute your materials to virtually any digital device and via print. The Withdraw feature allows you to remove content from end users devices at any time. And the Revise feature allows you to update your content and push those updates to users without them having to seek out the changes.
Yes! SharedBook uses your existing files and doesn’t require you to re-author them. Simply upload any files you would like to distribute. Then use the SharedBook platform to pick and choose items for your custom “Pack” and create the perfect personalized digital material for every client in minutes.
