NELSONVILLE, Ohio, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ed Map, Inc., a leader in content strategy and logistics, today announced that Shannon Meadows has joined the firm to unify sales, marketing, and business development strategies.
Over the past year while serving as a Strategic Advisor, Meadows has been helping Ed Map refine its holistic solution for the traditional higher education market that addresses the increasingly problematic issue of course materials affordability and access. "Shannon has been a leader in the EdTech sector for more than fifteen years, successfully benefiting the customer community, employees and investors," notes Ed Map President and COO Kerry S. Pigman. "The changes impacting higher education in general, and the course materials industry in particular, have been accelerating over the past decade. Ed Map has adjusted many parts of our business to address and capitalize on the changes, including our continual enhancement of our OPENVUE course materials management platform, our supply chain management services, our introduction of CURATE by Ed Map™ services, and our industry-first Platform as a Service business model. These and other activities have brought us to an inflection point. It's time to reintroduce ourselves to the broader higher ed industry, and Shannon has the experience, industry knowledge and insights to help focus Ed Map at this important time in our company history," adds Pigman.
"Ed Map's thought leadership and ingenuity pivoting from a traditional cost-plus distribution model is the right solution, at the right time, as institutions seek to improve affordability, efficacy and address budget constraints," Meadows states. She adds, "I'm thrilled to join Ed Map and help them achieve their vision."
"Ed Map's approach offers innovative and novel solutions as educators, institutions and content providers struggle with disruptions in the traditional content supply chain," says Pigman. "Shannon's addition to the Ed Map executive team is our next logical investment as we continue to fulfill our mission of increasing the value of educational content to best serve our customers and partners in meeting their goals."
