Publishing Financials: Achieving timely, accurate financials for continued, expanding success.
Perhaps one of the most daunting and overwhelming challenges in today’s new media publishing environment is the effective management and oversight of the financials. New sales channels have recently sprung up, including consumer-direct access to products, series subscriptions, mixed media offerings and never-out-of-print publications. Self-service portals demand effective order status, account payment, contact maintenance and sales and subscription management to control cost and turn a profit. And, with administrators, buyers and consumers all exercising varying levels of control in the process, items such as rights control, payment management and content assignment have become increasingly complex.
Managing these variables across a dispersed digital supply chain requires powerful, flexible software – especially when global language and currency issues enter the fray.
