Book Promotion and Service, the first of the iGroup offices, was formed in 1983 and initially specialized in the marketing and distribution of printed books in Thailand and its neighboring countries.
As new developments in the library and information sectors underwent growth and change, so too the company grew to meet its customer’s needs with additional resources and services, including distribution of electronic information delivered in CD-ROM and Internet/Intranet media. The company also began developing its own technologies such as eLib, a library management system.
As the business volume in each territory grew, local companies were opened to support existing customers and to continue to grow our business base.
From the late 1980s to mid-1990s, offices were opened in Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines and Vietnam.
The iGroup was formally incorporated in mid-1999, in recognition that the many individual companies of the group could benefit from a formal infrastructure to share resources.
The latest additions to the iGroup companies are iGroup Representative Offices in Beijing and Shanghai and in Indonesia and Japan; iGroup (Australasia) Pty. Ltd. in Melbourne; iGroup Korea, and a joint venture in India, iGroup Infotech India Pvt Ltd. Our newest offices, since 2013, are in Myanmar and Bucharest, Romania.
The iGroup focuses on the knowledge management and information industry, and caters to the needs of our customers: librarians, students, academics, educators, scientists and research professionals.
