Create one master version of your title metadata
How many sources of metadata are floating around your organization? If you are like most publishers, your metadata is being tracked in different ways in each department:
|Excel spreadsheets||Word documents||Filemaker databases||Access databases|
Take the number in your head and triple it. If you really look hard you will find people maintaining title information in more places than you think.
Which one of those different data sources is accurate? How much time is wasted broadcasting changes so that everyone can update their personal sources? How much anxiety does your staff feel when there is a price change as catalog season approaches – do they glance around the conference table nervously?
TITLE MANAGEMENT IS THE TRUTH
Title Management Enterprise offers publishers one version of the truth — publishing-specific software centered around a centralized database with the capabilities to manage publishing from Acquisition through Reprints, with Marketing and Sales in between.
Title information and collateral is collected in one place by the members of your team who know that information the best, at the time that they know it. This valuable asset is then leveraged to create production schedules, tip sheets, catalogs, B&N Title Cards, and more.
Imagine a one-click process to send this information to all of your trading partners including Amazon, Apple, Baker & Taylor, Barnes & Noble, Google, Kobo, Ingram, Nielsen, Gardners, Booktopia, and TitlePage — more than 500 in all. Firebrand’s Eloquence on Demand puts you in control, and gets the word out.
In Title Management, Firebrand offers the publishing industry’s most sophisticated software, based on almost 30 years of accumulated knowledge, in a configuration and price structure that works from the smallest, one-title publisher to the largest houses in the world.
Publishing is a creative business. It’s also getting more sophisticated. Shouldn’t your staff be focusing on those things that take advantage of their talents and which contribute to great books and great sales?
