The reality of running a publishing business is endlessly changing data, literally thousands of to-dos, and a complex network of distributors, wholesalers, printers, retailers, data aggregators and sales agencies, all with their own systems to keep updated – not to mention your database, all the spreadsheets, ONIX, the AIs, your catalogue, sales and royalties.

You know you should stop and get the publishing process more organised. Everyone's too busy firefighting for that to be an option, though.

But what if you could? What if migrating your legacy data was straightforward? And it was then easy to keep every piece of metadata automatically synced, so there was one version of the truth across editorial, production, marketing, and finance, as well as all your external systems? To have every task neatly move in line with all your changing manuscript delivery and publication dates? For teams across your company – editorial, rights, production, marketing, sales, PR, finance – to share a united understanding of all your backlist and frontlist metadata, contracts and more? Your company could be efficient and futureproofed – within a few months.

"Hugely impressed with the interface and user design elements of Consonance, and the modern approach to system architecture which we feel is well placed to grow with us as our programme grows."

– Chris Box, Head of Sales Operations, Institute of Physics Publishing
