The two leading Nordic publishers, WSOY and WSOYpro from Finland, have chosen Schilling Publishing in their pursuit of efficiency and quality. Schilling Publishing is developed by Schilling A/S, the Danish specialist in software solutions to the publishing industry. WSOY and WSOYpro are part of Sanoma Learning & Literature, one of the biggest educational publishing groups in Europe.
With the Schilling Royalty solution the two members of the Sanoma family, WSOY and WSOYpro, will achieve improved control of their royalty processes. The solution from the Danish software partner Schilling A/S will be integrated with Sanoma’s SAP system and will ensure fast and correct royalty settlements for both companies in the future.
“Our goal was to implement a new royalty system that would inject more efficiency and quality into our royalty process. We want to future-proof our business so that it will be able to evolve with new business models without any obstacles. Furthermore, high quality in royalty processes is key to a strong relationship with our authors”, says CFO Salla Terho, WSOYpro.
Schilling was chosen after a thorough process analysis, which identified the needs and potential for value generation of both publishers. The flexibility of the solution and the fact that Schilling Royalty supports the different processes of WSOY and WSOYpro were important reasons for their choice of system.
“Since our very first meeting with Schilling, they have shown great knowledge and insight into our business processes. This is of great value to us, and we expect to optimise a number of processes that will liberate more resources for future growth”, says CFO Jaakko Rajakoski, WSOY. “Schilling’s unique version updates secure continued access to the newest developments, which makes it a future-proof investment”, he continues.
Schilling A/S in Denmark sees the agreement as an important step towards increased market share in Europe.
“We are very proud that such an important player in both Finland and Europe has chosen our system as their future royalty solution. With this agreement Schilling will strengthen our already strong market position in Northern Europe”, Sales Director Lars Sønderby says.
