The Slicebooks platform is a feature-packed publishing ecosystem with unique tools for repurposing content, a white label store product and embeddable store widgets called StoreApps. Distributors, publishers, corporations and nonprofit organizations can use the Content Management System (CMS) to chunk (slice) & remix content to create new micro content (i.e. chapters) and custom ebooks.
Sometimes called “iTunes for eBooks”, Slicebooks offers a variety of tools and services that enable publishers to repurpose content, create custom and micro content, build direct sales channels and target niche audiences:
We founded EarlyAccess, Inc. in October 2010 in Broomfield, Colorado, USA with the aim of developing new & innovative products and services for publishers. In 2013 the company launched Slicebooks.com, a combination of publishing tools and content management system to help publishers repurpose content & sell direct. In 2013 we launched the Slicebooks Store, a White Label content store platform and “MicroStores”, embeddable web store widgets for targeting niche audiences with sliced content.

Slicebooks offers a variety of tools and services that enable publishers to repurpose content, create custom and micro content, build direct sales channels and target niche audiences.
The CMS gives publishers a variety of custom publishing tools, including,
Instantly chunk content to create new ready-to-publish micro content.
When publishers need to chunk files, they often will do it manually in-house using tools not designed for the task. This approach takes much longer than the Slicebooks CMS. Slicebooks can slice and package thousands of files at a rate of approximately one per minute. Also, a manual approach does not automatically transfer the source metadata to the newly sliced files as the Slicebooks CMS does, which is necessary for creating a product that can be distributed in standard sales channels.
Using the Slicebooks Content Slicer, publishers and any content owner can slice existing books, journals and other files into smaller, ready-to-publish micro-content in minutes.
Mix & match text and multimedia files to create new custom ebook products.
The ContentRemixer lets publishers mix and match slices, whole books and multimedia (audio/video) files together to create a new ebook product. This is a particularly useful tool in Education, where teachers and professors commonly need to create custom coursepacks by combining content from various sources. Due to the time it normally takes to get the necessary permissions from publishers to create such custom collections, the ContentRemixer makes permissions automatic and makes it easy for publishers to create custom collections instantly. In this way the teachers can get just what they want and both the publishers and authors get paid.
Auto-transfer metadata from source files to new content chunks and remixed ebooks.
Slicebooks automatically transfers associated metadata from parent files to new sliced content files, which saves time in making slices ready-to-publish files. Metadata is based on both the ONIX standard and MarcXML standard. Also, at any time publishers can edit or create new metadata for any file right within the CMS. For example, for products published to the Slicebooks Store, White Label Stores, or StoreApps, prices, descriptions, identifiers and other data required for publishing can be changed and updated on the associated product page in real time. All metadata files are also available for download via ONIX, MarcXML or .csv.
The Publish API integrates the CMS with associated white label stores and StoreApps. It makes it easy for publishers to upload or update content and metadata from the Slicebooks CMS to targeted stores and StoreApps. In just two steps publishers can create new product pages on all associated stores, update metadata or remove existing content. And as part of the upload process, publishers are also given easy social media tools to promote new content as it is being published.
Slicebooks White Label Stores are uniquely feature-full content stores that can be customized and branded for selling any kind of content. Publishers can create their own privately branded store with all the unique features of Slicebooks, including CMS integration, sliced and remixable content, unlimited StoreApps and complete administrative control.
White Label Store Features:
What is it?
The StoreApp is an embeddable and customizable web app that is a fully functioning digital content store. It embeds on any site and is responsively designed, which means it dynamically fits in any site column and is viewable on mobile, tablet and desktop devices.
Target niche markets
The Mobile StoreApp gives publishers an instant path for growing D2C channels. In minutes publishers can create and customize a StoreApp on the CMS, and then paste the store on their own site or any other site they can recruit. Their customers can log-in, browse and checkout all within the app, which means the customer never leaves the site where the app is embedded. And both the embed code and the mobile links can be easily shared, which gives publishers the ability to grow new sales channels and target niche markets by distributing their StoreApps on affiliated sites
