Capstone Publishing Goes End-to-End with Virtusales BiblioLIVE Publishing System

 

Capstone Publishing has selected BiblioLIVE as the system of choice to integrate and consolidate its publishing processes.

  • Remove dual-data entry

  • Improve efficiencies of the publishing process

  • Provide visibility throughout the organisation

  • Access to information

  • Achievement of the corporate business goals

Virtusales Publishing Solutions, the leading software supplier to publishers worldwide, is pleased to announce that Capstone Publishing has selected BiblioLIVE as the system of choice to integrate and consolidate its publishing processes. Capstone, specialists in children’s education and digital products, is the latest major publisher to sign up to BiblioLIVE in order to achieve operational efficiencies throughout its international operations, which includes over 13,000 titles across 6 imprints.

 

Capstone’s selection of the full suite of BiblioLIVE modules actually began with a tendering process to select a product to manage its Royalties process, which to date had been manual, requiring duplication data entry, time-intensive calculations and manual royalty statement creation which was unable to scale and meet business needs. Following discussions with a number of vendors and a deeper analysis of internal requirements, Capstone soon realized that just addressing Royalties would not solve many of the frustrations and inefficiencies it faces with the rest of the publishing process. In particular, the use of disparate systems and Excel spreadsheets means the press is currently reliant on dual-data entry and manual integration to get through their workflows, costing them time and money.

We are delighted that Capstone has made the decision to implement BiblioLIVE to address the full publication lifecycle - it is this approach that will allow them to truly achieve their business goals.

Rodney Elder, Executive Vice President, North America, Virtusales

After several conversations with Virtusales and demonstrations of the breadth and functionality of BiblioLIVE, it became clear to Capstone that an integrated solution would be more appropriate, providing users with an opportunity to improve efficiencies throughout the organisation and achieve their corporate strategic goals of scaling.

 

With an end-to-end publication system and single, consolidated database, Capstone will be able to effectively manage the entire publication lifecycle, from Ideation and Acquisition, all the way through the Contract and Production processes, flowing seamlessly on to Rights and Royalties.

As a company with a history of continual innovation, we are thrilled to be implementing the full BiblioLIVE suite. The flexibility that this solution will provide really allows us to continue delivering on our promise to respond quickly and effectively to the market. The Virtusales team are outstanding professionals, and we are glad to be working with them on this next chapter in our story.
