Why RedShelf?

Nearly half of all U.S. colleges and thousands of publishers and businesses choose RedShelf, making us one of the leading education companies in the nation, named 2022 Publishing Software of the Year, named to the Inc. 5000 for the past four consecutive years, and more. Here are just a few of the reasons we’ve become the partner of choice for digital content delivery. 

Digital Leadership

Put simply, the future of learning content is digital-first, so your partner should be, too. While many providers are attempting to adapt their traditional print models to keep pace with digital evolution, RedShelf has been focused since our founding on being the very best at digital content delivery. 

One-Stop Shopping

While many vendors offer one or two pieces of the puzzle, we offer everything our partners need to go digital—rapid digitization and nationwide distribution for publishers and content creators; a vast catalog of digital textbooks and courseware for colleges and training enterprises; and the workflow software for efficiently acquiring, pricing, selling, and delivering those materials. 

Award-Winning eReader

All of our digital books are delivered on the award-winning RedShelf eReader, packed with built-in study tools including highlighting, definitions, text-to-speech, flashcards, note-sharing, and more. By upgrading to RedShelf Classroom, content creators and instructors can enhance the material even further through assignments, quizzes, and multimedia.

Single-Platform Solution

Our distribution software (known as our "Content Delivery System") enables our partners to manage all of their training and course materials through a single platform. Learners enjoy a consistent access point for all their required materials, while administrators benefit from streamlined workflows and comprehensive, holistic business and user analytics. 

Unparalleled Support

Many software companies expect customers to get by largely on their own. At RedShelf, our partners are assigned a dedicated team of individuals who roll up their sleeves and do what it takes to help them succeed. In addition, our partners have access to empathy-based support from our help desk staff as well as self-service troubleshooting through the RedShelf Solve knowledge base. 

Best-in-Class Privacy & Security

Thousands of organizations (including ISACA, a leader in the privacy & security space) have entrusted RedShelf to safely and securely power their digital publishing initiatives. We take that responsibility seriously, employing multi-faceted, rigorous strategies to help protect their information.

Industry-Leading Accessibility

Leveraging an accessibility-first design methodology—led by our own in-house accessibility team—RedShelf’s technology ensures equivalent experiences for all learners, even those who don’t disclose an existing disability. Unizin, a consortium of Tier 1 research universities, recently chose RedShelf, and our superior accessibility was a key driver of that decision.

What Our Partners Are Saying...

RedShelf has proven to be a true game-changer for our students as they now have access to course materials on day 1 at a much more affordable price than ever before. From a student perspective, their customer service, app, and ease of integration within our LMS have made the transition to digital texts a smooth one! From an institutional perspective, I have been so impressed with the responsiveness and advocacy experienced. The customer service has far outshone the competition and is what led us to choose to partner with RedShelf over other digital providers.

RedShelf has been the most reliable partner in our Inclusive Access program. It starts with the people you employ; whenever we, at the bookstore, need something, the responses are always same-day and the same is true when our students need something. So many companies out there (not just in the digital or textbook market) could learn many things about the way to conduct themselves with clients and partners alike.
