About Us

The ilumIA team has unparalleled expertise in Inclusive Access and digital content delivery, along with the creation of tools that present complex data in easy-to-use-and-analyze formats. Key industry stakeholders have contributed their knowledge and insight into creating ilumIA.

Our team is led by Joann Spyker, president of ilumIA and founder and managing partner of Unbound Strategy, a business that helps organizations transition from print-based content delivery to digital education. Joann’s goal is to transform ideas into strategies — and move from strategy to successful execution. ilumIA is a prime example of achievement of that goal. Before founding Unbound Strategy, Joann held senior positions in both traditional and evolutionary content delivery businesses.


Don't just take our word for it, see what our partners are saying!

This is a light-speed jump with helping me keep my program staunchly independent. It’s an invaluable tool for bookstores to be the ones who take control of IA transactions and say, ‘Here’s all my data, go harmonize it.’

I would encourage all of my local teams to sign up for this in a heartbeat! My hat’s off for your help in this — it may really change the game forever.”
