WeBudding, Asia’s largest digital stationery service for tablet users, has just announced an exciting partnership with GoodNotes 5, a digital paper app that is popular worldwide. As part of this partnership, WeBudding will offer a range of digital note templates, planners, and sticker images that can be used within the GoodNotes 5 app. WeBudding has secured exclusive distribution rights for the Korean market, which means that Korean users will be among the first to access this new content.
WeBudding’s move into the global market is a major step for the company, given that it has already achieved significant success with over 400,000 content downloads and a thriving community of over 2,000 creators who sell more than 15,000 products on its platform, with monthly sales of over 10,000 digital stationery products. This new partnership with GoodNotes 5 is expected to benefit both companies, as it will provide users with access to an even wider range of engaging template content, while WeBudding will be able to expand its reach to a global audience. The launch of Webudding creators’ content in the GoodNotes 5 app on March 10, 2023, is a major milestone for the partnership, and users can currently purchase content from these creators in the pop-up shop within GoodNotes 5.
GoodNotes 5 is primarily available on the iPhone and iPad app stores, with a beta service recently launched for both Windows and Android platforms. The app’s popularity has made it one of the most widely used digital paper apps, with users relying on it daily to streamline their digital note-taking experience.
“We are excited to partner with GoodNotes 5 and offer users even more engaging and diverse template content,” said Donghwan Shin, CEO of Noutecompany, which manages the WeBudding platform. “Our plan is to provide various value-added content to tablet users, such as K-Pop merchandise content, to cater to the needs of a wide range of users.”
The partnership comes after Noutecompany’s successful pre-Series A funding round, which raised KRW 2.2 billion (approximately USD 1.66 million) from investors Strong Ventures, Capstone Partners, and Schmidt. The company’s growth has also been recognized by the Ministry of SMEs and Startups’ technology investment program, TIPS.
Overall, the partnership between WeBudding and GoodNotes 5 presents an exciting opportunity for the digital stationery industry, promising to provide users with even more engaging and diverse template content while expanding WeBudding’s reach to a global audience.
