When asked “we can either do this the easy way or the hard way?” 99% of people will always opt for the easy way! That’s why it’s great that we can now hook YUDU Pro to subscription fulfilment houses, this eliminates the need for publishers to manage/duplicate their subscription data in two separate locations (YUDU Pro/Fulfilment House).
It works by integrating an API (Application Program Interface) supplied by the fulfilment house with the YUDU Pro system, once the API has been integrated a user is authenticated against the fulfilment house system rather than the YUDU Pro subscription system. The login process for the user is unchanged; they retrieve the content exactly the same way.Once YUDU Pro is hooked up to a fulfilment house a user can still be authenticated from all platforms (iOS/Android/Digital Edition). This flexibility appeals to me as I have an Android mobile phone and an iPad, so a I’m able to subscribe and access content from both devices.
Integration has already been implemented for our existing clients using the API’s from the following fulfilment houses; CDS, Dovetail, and Quadrant. If you’re using any of these then the process to hook YUDU Pro to it is simple.
We’ve made things nice and easy for the 99% of people who like to take the easy route for the remaining 1% of you enjoy the long hard route.
