Trinity University Press have introduced Virtusales’ BiblioLIVE system, after they needed an advanced publishing solution to keep pace with a rapidly changing industry.
Trinity University Press launched its program in 2004 with a generous grant from the Ewing Halsell Foundation. Since then it has published more than 150 print and digital titles (projected to reach almost 400 by the end of 2015), received dozens of awards and countless international reviews and notices in nearly every imaginable venue.
Trinity University Press prides itself on publishing a broad range of original and compelling works and required a future-proofed publishing solution to support their work. Trinity University Press will be moving to BiblioLIVE from Firebrand’s Title Management Software.
Tom Payton, Associate Director at Trinity University Press explained their need for an advanced publishing software like BiblioLIVE.
“As a quickly growing university press with a trade focus, our need for better title data management has become imperative.
“We have not been satisfied with other products in the market, but found BiblioLIVE to be intuitive and easy to use. It was clearly designed by people who know the book publishing business inside out. The Virtusales’ team is easy to work with, enabling start-up and implementation to be a breeze.”
Trinity are implementing Virtusales’ BiblioLIVE bibliographic and production modules, which incorporates the following key functions:
Peer review management
Pre-acquisition and project cost estimating
Cost management & purchase ordering
Editorial, bibliographic data management
Marketing campaign, promotions and multi currency price management
ONIX 2 & 3 feeds, website feeds
Access anywhere through the web
Rodney Elder, VP of Commercial Operations at Virtusales said; “By using BiblioLIVE, Trinity University Press now have access to a wide range of resources and technologies such as scaled production costing and automated production scheduling.
“These technologies are something normally reserved for only the largest of publishers and since Trinity Press will receive upgrades every 6-8 weeks as part of their service, they don’t need to worry about being left behind as the industry continues to change.”
