“As a con­tent provider that re­ally cares about its rep­u­ta­tion for high qual­ity, we were de­lighted to be in­vited to join the mar­ket­place.

“Our sub­scribers get the op­por­tu­nity to look at what else is on of­fer while we are able to pro­vide the SSO Mar­ket­place users’ fan­tas­tic of­fers and free tri­als.”

Ju­lian Mobbs, CEO of EduTone, said: “We are thrilled to have Po­lar Fish Books as part of the EduTone SSO Mar­ket­place.

“They have re­ally done a great job in­te­grat­ing ev­ery­thing seam­lessly.”
