NEWBOOKS database and VLB ensure optimum data quality, incl. backlist

The new title announcement service for the German publishing industry has been developed by NEWBOOKS Solutions. VLB-TIX provides access to title data for all new publications and related backlist contained in the NEWBOOKS and VLB databases.

VLB-TIX is the platform for high quality, enriched and up-to-the-minute communication about new books that goes way beyond title listings or printed previews. At the same time, the system allows for the demand-driven and targeted selection of new title announcements and provides a hitherto unknown abundance of information. VLB-TIX represents a leap forward in the quality of information passing between publishers, booksellers, journalists, bloggers and readers and revolutionizes targeted purchasing in the new books jungle.

The preview and ordering system streamlines the supply chain applying subject-specific acquisition profiles and top title criteria while being directly connected to key accounts' ERP systems. VLB-TIX' stock alignment does not only organize the distribution of purchase recommendations more precisely but also run backlist campaigns and generate in-depth statistical analysis as well as sales figures automatically.

Dr. Thomas Schaber CEO

Publishers and booksellers often need special functions and high-quality websites which are tailored to their respective organizations and the presentation of their products. Therefore in addition to our consulting and the implementation of standard software, we offer tailored and individually developed solutions.

Especially for large websites, individual programming has almost become the rule lately. Existing workflows and current web applications are reviewed and, as part of the requirement analysis, redesigned and revised. Our solutions stand out due to their ease of use and target group-oriented processes. Customers value our personalized service and reliability as well as the use of the latest technologies that Microsoft has awarded us as an Independent Software Vendor with Gold Certification.

By using ASP.NET and Microsoft SQL Server, we create completely new websites which include editorial- and news systems. In order to quickly access the wide product range of publishers and booksellers, the focus is on ergonomic navigation and optimized search.
