About Us

Publishing Technology plc is the world-leading provider of content solutions that transform business. We cover the publishing process from end to end with content systems, audience development and content delivery software and services.

Combining our unmatched publishing knowledge, global operations and perpetual support model with our advance operations system, ingentaconnect scholarly portal, pub2web custom hosting platform and Publishers Communication Group (PCG) sales and marketing consultancy, we offer the industry’s only full spectrum of solutions to help publishers move their content forward.

Publishing Technology was formed in 2007 following the merger of Ingenta, VISTA, and Publishers Communication Group and is listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange. Jointly operating from Europe (Oxford) and North America (Boston and New Jersey), we have local teams in Brazil, India, China and Australia. With industry experience going back 35 years and 200 employees, Publishing Technology serves over 400 trade and scholarly publishers, including HarperCollins, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, Elsevier, Springer, Sage, Oxford University Press, BMJ Group, Brill, United Nations, American Institute of Physics, American Society for Microbiology, BioOne and Bloomsbury Publishing.

Founded in 1977, VISTA International provided solutions and services supporting the printed publication process. The company’s configurable author2reader system continues to serve all aspects of the publishing value chain, from author care through production, rights and royalties to warehouse and fulfillment. To the present day, dozens of publishers still manage their operations with VISTA systems, notably the distribution of every original English-language Harry Potter title worldwide. Publishing Technology’s next-generation advance framework carries this tradition of intellectual property management forward into the digital era.

Established in 1998, Ingenta was an original innovator of online distribution technology for published scientific, professional and academic research. Serving publishers, societies and libraries, the company’s flagship ingentaconnect portal now hosts 5 million articles and nearly 10,000 publications from 255 publishers, and is accessed in over 25,000 institutions worldwide. Through mergers and acquisitions with UnCover, CatchWord and Heron, Ingenta became an early leader in digital library platforms and associated services. The Ingenta legacy endures in Publishing Technology’s evolved, custom-built pub2web hosting solution.

Founded in 1990 and acquired in 2000 by Ingenta, Publishers Communication Group (PCG) is an internationally recognized marketing and sales consulting firm providing a range of services designed to support and drive publisher outreach strategies. Combining a breadth of marketing and sales experience with a depth of industry knowledge in publishing and the global library community, PCG continues to provide global sales representation, telemarketing, market research, customer service operations and strategic consulting in established and emerging markets around the world.
