Vancouver, Canada, June 7, 2005—NewspaperDirect, Inc. has announced a major upgrade to its leading service, which currently provides ePaper solutions to over 200 newspapers and magazines worldwide.

As part of the new platform, NewspaperDirect also introduced PressReader v 2.0, the new application for offline newspaper and magazine reading. The new version creates the foundation for a complete new line of products and services as well as business models, employing the next generation of technology for newspaper and magazine publishers and their readers. "This new platform will allow us to provide publishers with a wide range of zero cost operational solutions, while continuing to increase their audited paid circulation and readership numbers," said NewspaperDirect CEO Alexander Kroogman. "We are setting a new standard for ePublishing solutions, by leveraging technology better than the competition and creating new ways of meeting the needs of readers and publishers locally and globally."
