Publishers have been accelerating their use of Print-on-Demand (POD) technologies as a means of reducing cost, streamlining delivery and remaining competitive in today’s consumer-driven marketplace. As a result, IBS Bookmaster has been developing physical and digital supply chain solutions to enable publishers to combine various supply chain models within a single operational enterprise process:
- Distribution using in-house controlled POD and delivery: For publishers who wish to directly control the printing process via the use of in-house POD systems or in- house partner systems.
- Distribution using 3rd party aggregator controlled POD and delivery: For publishers who do not wish to directly control the printing or dispatch process.
- Warehouse replenishment using POD: For publishers working with titles that are not yet at a level of inventory requirement suitable for normal printing houses, or whose sales volume no longer warrants actively managing the product as a part of the core business and inventory plan.
