Jenkintown, PA (April 7, 2015) — Managing Editor Inc (MEI), the world’s leading reseller of Adobe® Digital Publishing Suite™ (DPS) and developer of MEI Portico™, today announced that it has signed Media Systems Limited (MSL) to sell and support MEI Portico in the United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa. MEI now has certified Portico integrators covering a majority of European countries.

MSL has completed many DPS implementations in the past four years, for customers such as Reed Business Information, National Geographic Kids, Arsenal Football Club, Hargreaves Lansdown and the University of Sheffield.
“We specialize in enterprise-wide implementations of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite – including custom storefront development, entitlement integration and private distribution,” said Ian Bennett, MSL’s CEO. “Portico enables us to build and deliver those services via a web-based administrator without needing to write code. Publishers and corporations are able to get up and running in less than a day. The app look can be updated at any time without users downloading an update from the App Store or Google Play.”
Paul Driscoll, MSL’s Publishing Director, added “We look forward to working with MEI and Adobe to bring our collective knowledge and software to the emerging market. There’s an ever growing number of businesses who have the need to deliver content via Tablet and Phone in an attractive and easily manageable way, and Portico has an important role to play in helping to achieve this.”
