Here’s how.

ONIX feeds

Where there’s metadata, there’s ONIX. Consonance’s automated data feeds eliminate manual data entry, saving you time as your list grows. Deliver your data to recipients worldwide, from Nielsen to Amazon, Ingram, NBNi and your other trading partners. Refresh your backlist through rich, incremental updates. Reduce human error, improve your discoverability and sell more books.

Spreadsheet exports

Download instant bulk exports of all your products, prices, stock history and more. Build your own custom spreadsheets using Consonance’s flexible custom report templates. From publishing schedules to distributor spreadsheets, and even your mailing lists: Consonance saves you time and ensures data accuracy across the supply chain.

Beautiful advance info sheets

No more copying-and-pasting into InDesign. With Consonance, automatically generate beautiful information sheets for all your products, and then download them in bulk whenever you need. Your AIs are accurate, up-to-date and compelling to retailers.

And reuse your metadata on automatically generated elegant internal and third-party briefing documents, so you never have to copy and paste ISBNs and blurbs in emails to designers again. From issue tracking and briefing notes to key date management, Consonance turns data into action.

Publishing schedules

Streamline your workflow and automate best practice by creating templates for your publishing schedules. Keep track of key dates and deadlines across multiple schedules and a growing list. Estimate and measure your schedules so you address bottlenecks, eliminate waste and publish faster and more accurately over time.

Link your personal or corporate calendaring system into Consonance, and show your tasks and publication schedules alongside team vacations and personal appointments, all in one place with helpful links back to the system.

Contracts

Store your contract data in Consonance so that manuscript delivery dates and rights information are at your team’s fingertips, forever – not buried in scanned PDFs or a filing cabinet. Generate beautiful, automated contracts for every title – and equip yourselves to automate your royalties, down the line.

Information gets forgotten if it’s in a Word doc, on someone’s email or in a filing cabinet. Consonance keeps data alive and actionable, such as contracted advances due, gratis copies to be posted, and contractually-agreed manuscript delivery dates.

Royalties

The best royalties system you’ll ever use. Leveraging the presence of contract and title data in the system, Consonance is royalty software for publishers. Import your sales and historical royalty rates using our custom Google sheets. Automatically calculate royalties across all your titles, using your contract data. Automate beautiful PDF statements and download in bulk for efficient, professional communication with your authors.

Integrated tools

Contracts that remind you to send out gratis copies and pay advances. Royalty runs that run with a single click, because all the data entry was done when you created the contract. Profit and loss reports which populate themselves from templates and imported sales. Production runs with costs that appear automatically on the P&L. Intuitive links from works to their contributors, and back again.

The more you use the system, the clearer the real benefits of having a central place for all your data become.
