Affordable and non-modular pricing to encourage full team participation: the secret to harmonised workflow

Licence fee / user / month

£ 75.00

Each user licence is £75 ex vat per month. We have a strict minimum of 5 users per client, because Consonance is designed to help growing teams manage complex workflows and complex data. Teams of at least 15 people tend to get the best value out of Consonance.

The monthly user licence fee includes everything you need to be a better publisher:

  • Unlimited personal support for each user from technical staff, via our dedicated online ticketed helpdesk.
  • Access to all functionality for all users – no modules or locked features requiring upgrades.
  • Immediate access to the new and improved features continually added.
  • High quality, well-maintained how-tos, in-depth articles and a private user forum.
  • Periodic account management screen-shares, if required, to review priorities, plan projects and provide expert advice.
  • Billing in GBP or your local currency, subject to agreement.
  • Direct debit / Stripe or invoiced payments are available, subject to agreement.


We work with each of our clients to implement Consonance in the way that's right for them. Our standard package is £2500 ex VAT which includes:

  • Data cleansing and migration of imported ONIX 2.1 metadata
  • ONIX feed set-up to Nielsen, Bowker, BDS, and others as necessary
  • Kick off screen-share session
  • Orientation screen-share session
  • Team training screen-share session

This explicitly excludes any royalties aspect, which will be quoted separately on sight of your data and existing processes. You must budget for this project if you plan to use the royalties functionality. The cost will depend on your requirements and at a minimum there will be a charge for checking your sales channels are set up correctly and your legacy data is in the right format to be imported into Consonance. Further services may include:

  • Data cleansing and migration of previous sales data, royalties data, past payments and payee information
  • Amendments to the standard royalty statement layout
  • Bespoke code to accommodate your distributors' sales reporting
  • Bespoke code to handle your legacy edge cases


If you and your team require additional personalised training in addition to our free resources and the training including in our standard implementation package, we provide private online sessions at £110 ex VAT per hour.

Due to their inherent complexity, royalties projects attract a mandatory training charge. We will provide an estimate of the extent of training required on sight of your data and processes, and you should expect to budget for this training, with the amount depending on your requirements. See Implementing royalties as a new publisher or Implementing royalties with legacy data for details.


Consultancy and advanced data migration services, if required, are £700 ex VAT per staff member per day.


Most code changes can be delivered as part of the licence fee if we agree the changes are beneficial to all users. If you and your team require personalised code, it's £100–£150 ex VAT an hour depending on the complexity.
