Palm Coast Data Launches New Product Management Group
PALM COAST, Fla. (March 1, 2012) -- Palm Coast Data has launched a new Product Management Group that is dedicated to developing new client solutions in the areas of Digital Publishing; Database and Analytic Services; Print and Electronic Messaging; Ecommerce; and Customer Service. Mike Lee, Senior Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer for Palm Coast Data, is charged with overseeing the group.
Each area is led by a Product Manager with an expert understanding of both the assigned vertical and corresponding systems within Palm Coast Data. The ultimate goal is to fill current voids within publishers’ marketing models with new innovation that matches the pace of media evolution.
“Publishers can activate more channels today than ever before to generate new revenue streams,” says Michael P. Duloc, President and CEO of Kable Media Services, Inc. “And within a quickly changing marketplace, publishers are looking to fulfillment partners to develop and deploy new products and innovative solutions that generate profits.”
“Palm Coast Data’s comprehensive ecommerce platform has already helped publishing clients learn more about their online audiences, capture and increase sales, and offset traditional fulfillment costs through robust self-service features,” says Mike Lee. “And recently, we launched the new PCD Digital Entitlements System that puts publishers back in control of their customer relationships – and alleviates third-party digital newsstands that previously owned customer records. The PCD Product Management Group is another tremendous step in driving more innovation and value into fulfillment, online, and digital capacities.”
Kable Media Services, Inc., recently announced Jim Tourtillott’s promotion to Vice President, Information Technology, to oversee all IT functions, including those at Kable Distribution Services, Kable Product Services, and Palm Coast Data. Mr. Tourtillott has held numerous IT functions and leadership roles at various Kable divisions for nearly 15 years. In his new position, he will serve as a strategic, high-tech driver across media services, fulfillment, and other functions and seek collaborative opportunities that benefit clients.
