IBS Bookmaster is a fully integrated ERP system for book publishers with strong distribution and warehouse management capabilities. Most recently, they have developed future-proof products to deliver the new Rights, Royalties and Permissions Management modules (in .Net) needed to complement an effective digital supply chain solution. The core IBS Bookmaster software uses a DB2 database that runs on IBM iSeries hardware. The new rights, royalties and permissions management module is written in .Net and runs on a MS-SQL database that can be installed on iSeries hardware or a Windows Server.
Innovative Logistics uses IBS Bookmaster to provide a high degree of service to its customers. Its 220,000 sq ft distribution facility includes more than 7,400 pallet positions and is fully automated. The company also provides a range of automated communications capabilities, as well as a detailed and comprehensive suite of reports so customers have complete real-time visibility into all aspects of their supply chains.

A year after the Independent Publishers Group implemented Trilogy they said:
“IPG has now completed a 5 year overhaul of all internal systems, ending with this milestone of a solid year using Trilogy. Having cutting edge software solutions means IPG can remain nimble, efficient, and dynamic in the changing landscape of publishing. It also means IPG has real-time visibility into operations and sophisticated analytics that drive sales. All of our systems are now robust, stable, scalable, and multi-currency. Projects on the scale of Trilogy are never easy but the challenge is rewarded generously with productivity gains, happy staff, well-served customers, and publishers who have the tools they need to grow. High-quality data and information systems have never been as important in publishing as they are now, and IPG is very proud to have made a transition that others find to be too costly, too complex, or too difficult. I am incredibly proud of our staff for making it all possible, and we are all looking forward to many years of smooth sailing on our state-of-the-art systems.”
