Harpers gains from technology

Kudos to the techies

New technology has helped the British arm of Rupert Murdoch's publishing company, HarperCollins, post its highest revenue figures in three years, says a report released in London.
Turnover for the business rose 4.7 per cent to £254 million ($A389 million) in the year ending June 2011, with the sales of e-books up sevenfold, reported the Evening Standard newspaper.

HarperCollins, which also has accounts in Australia, have attributed the results partly to experimentation with e-books and other media applications which have started "to bear fruit".
