Trade & international
Consonance was borne from the need of Snowbooks, a well-established genre publisher, to work efficiently as a single team, to communicate effortlessly with trade partners, and produce beautiful marketing materials.
To our trade publishers, we extend that foundation with advanced features which include:
Although our roots are in the UK publishing industry, we offer world-wide access, since Consonance is a cloud-hosted web application.
Our core technologies allow clients to store metadata in any script supported by the Unicode consortium, and there is no limit on the range of currencies available to use.
We are quick to adopt new international metadata elements, based on customers' market requirements. A recent example: we added Flemish NUR subject code support, and market-specific publisher and supplier identfication schemes.
Consonance has particular integrations through ONIX feeds with NBNi, allowing us to send updates on print on demand and automatic stock replenishment arrangements to NBNI.
We also receive daily price and availability feeds, which are completely integrated into Consonance.
