Customers with a current, active Ingram account will have access to ipage at no cost for unlimited concurrent users.
As an Ingram Content Group company, Ingram Library Services enjoys the benefit of being part of one of the largest wholesale distributors of book-related product in the world, including physical book distribution and print on demand solutions from multiple regional distribution centers. With over five decades of experience, we have established publisher relationships, inventory, and infrastructure in place to provide our customers with the highest order fill rates and unparalleled speed of delivery.
Ingram is a privately held, family-owned corporation operating under the same ownership since our inception. The Ingram family is actively involved in the day-to-day operations of our company and has a vested interest in our customers’ satisfaction. A tremendous advantage of being a family-owned company is the history and stability of ownership backing our long-term plans to remain the number one book vendor and service provider in the library market.
