Flexible, integrated mixed-mode publishing distribution solutions
We are a global leader in providing focused solutions to the $120 billion global publishing industry, actively responding to ground-shaking changes as customers morph from primarily print-centered to increasingly digital-focused businesses. The result of this change is not only the demand for digital content, but also the demand for digital delivery systems, with orders placed via self-help, web-based B2B/B2C and subscription processes.
The Digital Supply Chain sits precariously near the top of almost every publishing company’s priority list. For many in the publishing industry, the mere term Digital Supply Chain is enough to cause agitation. It is broad and vague and covers a range of possibilities for products, technologies and services, but presents no easy solution for managing them – until now.
Leveraging over 20 years experience of working with international trade and education publishers and book distributors, Iptor’s ERP for publishing is perfectly positioned to help seamlessly enable the Digital Supply Chain while still managing the core processes that are the backbone of any publishing business.
Our fully integrated ERP solution for publishing includes strong distribution and warehouse management capabilities. Most recently, we have developed future-proof products to deliver the new Rights, Royalties and Permissions Management, and web-enablement tools needed to complement an effective digital supply chain solution.
We have integrated digital warehousing, ecommerce and subscription web services into our existing publishing distribution solutions.
Our digital supply chain solutions encompass the process of delivering digital media, be it books, music or video, by electronic means, from the point of origin (content provider) to destination (consumer).
Our solution provides publishers the ability to release one chapter or many chapters or illustrations from a book independently as manageable products.
Publishers can combine segments from different books to create targeted commercial offerings and provide accessibility to backlist and out-of-print titles in the absence of traditional print inventory.
Our Rights & Royalty Contracts Permissions management module allows publishers to manage the complexities of partnerships between publishers, intellectual property owners, consumers and upstream supply chain partners.
Our Business Intelligence module enables users to make fast business discoveries, insights and to make decisions across different workflows from financial, distribution, demand planning, advanced forecasting, and sales.
The Editorial Book Production module manages the entire process of producing print and digital products across the entire publishing process from planning to warehousing.
All Iptor solutions are designed to work with and complement well-established publishing and book distribution processes, government and industry regulations across different countries, language and currencies.
As the digitization of the reading experience progresses in each of the verticals we serve (trade, academic, religious, music, digital media and niche publishing and distribution), our customers need systems that will track profitability through all distribution channels at both the sub-ISBN and super-ISBN levels. In light of the changing publishing landscape, Iptor maintains its leading position as the main global provider of integrated supply chain management solutions to this rapidly changing industry.
For more than 35 years, Iptor has been helping customers such as Penguin Random House, McGraw-Hill Education, Campion Education, Hal Leonard Australia, Cengage Learning, World Scientific Publishing, John Hopkins University Press, Goodheart-Willcox, LexisNexis, HarperCollins, BookSource, and many more around the world to streamline, automate, accelerate and innovate their production and distribution processes to drive profitability and reliable performance efficiencies.
