Analyze Sales, Manage Inventory, Improve Forecasting

The Biblio suite’s fully integrated Business Intelligence utilizes existing title data to provide an in-depth financial picture of your IP. Use the Biblio Reporting tools to pull through any key customer or title data from elsewhere in the system and create bespoke outputs for analysis and further manipulation, all without the need for technical know-how or costly interfaces.

Manage your inventory and improve operational performance by quickly identifying those areas of your list which are under or over performing, and then adapt accordingly to maximize profitability.

Better insight into your inventory and sales will not only save money on excess stock, but locate and maximize new revenue streams. All of this can be used to improve author relationships and negotiate better deals based on real-time sales data.
