The special event celebrated the Phase One go-live of Virtusales’ Biblio publishing suite, which includes the Bibliographic, Production and DAM modules.
The launch represented the first stage of a project to transform Princeton’s book publishing operations. Previously, the university press had a number of disparate proprietary systems that had been developed over many years. It was a complex collection of non-integrated systems that was cumbersome to use and caused support issues for the IT team.
Once Biblio is fully implemented with the other phases, Princeton will be able to work much more efficiently with data integrated into one highly functional system. With information all in one place, the press will enjoy accurate, real-time visibility of what is happening in the organization, from acquisitions to production, design, and on to sales/marketing, rights and royalties’ management.
Designed specifically for book publishers, BiblioDAM combines the need for robust control of your IP with the complex day to day collaborative working practices of a publishing house. Available as a standalone solution, or fully integrated with Biblio3 or BiblioLIVE to provide a comprehensive suite of tools managing the creation, distribution and sale of print and digital content.
BiblioDAM gives you complete control of your assets, from print files to contract storage, from marketing materials to jacket images. Powerful tools ease the management of digital assets; assets can be locked for editing, access controlled at various levels, and different versions held within the system allowing users to revert back to previous files at any time.
Save time and money by completely removing the need for FTPs, couriers, and lengthy uploads of files, and save huge amounts of costly server storage. Send and receive assets from suppliers within the BiblioDAM system, and distribute digital content and metadata to retailers or your website.
