Consonance has many ways to make ONIX metadata maintenance painless, such as data checks, plentiful links to let you jump straight to the right part of the system, bulk edit pages, and simple yet powerful features such as a dropdown list of the ISBN list you bought from Nielsen or Bowker, and automatic barcodes generation.
We provide a personal service through the Consonance app and also direct advice and configuration: expert, dedicated support, including tailored development, is always just a click away for every team member. For example, Consonance presents industry advice on Thema, BIC and BISAC codes at the right time, in the right place, so you get the sales benefit of well-classified books.
Consonance is a comprehensive publishing management system, producing Slack notifications, as well as issues management, an audit trail, in-app notes, internal briefing notes and team memberships. It means everyone in the company is on the same page.
Consonance’s peerless usability makes it easy for the whole team to update data as soon as it changes. And by empowering the publishing team to enter and export data to ever increasing standards of timeliness, completion, effectiveness and accuracy, your books are more discoverable and appealing, and sell more at higher prices.
We send over seventy flavours of ONIX file to recipients who have all interpreted the standard slightly differently. It’s our problem, not yours: we liase all the time with recipients to accommodate their requirements. Because our code is modern and malleable, and our approach is pragmatic and can-do, we bend and flex where others snap. Read more.
“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
“Manuscripts are late, copywriters miss deadlines, and Customs hold up shipments, but we adapt to changes calmly, professionally and with flexibility.”
“…By streamlining and automating processes it has freed up many independents to focus on their publishing. One said: “Consonance is a game-changer for us…it’s transformed how we manage our titles and our metadata. It’s so easy to use and does whatever we want it to do.” – The IPG, on our GBS Services to Independent Publishers award
