  • Arvato Systems implements the German version of the publishing software "Biblio3"
  • "Biblio3" ensures ad hoc information with less effort and higher quality
After a thorough examination of the publishing programs available on the market, Klett-Cotta-Verlag decided to implement the publishing solution "Biblio3", offered by Arvato Systems exclusively on the German-speaking market, to manage its processes. The system allows central and integrated information and process management. In addition, it provides the potential to ensure ad hoc information with less effort and higher quality.

The implementation project began in August 2016 and will be carried out by a joint project team of employees from Klett-Cotta and Arvato Systems. Particular attention will be paid to the integration and synchronization of the processes and data streams with Klett-Cotta-Verlag's active publishing distribution. The integration of "Biblio3" with Klett-Verlag Group's SAP systems is another key focus. Klett-Cotta uses the Cloud version of "Biblio3", which relieves the publisher of all technical IT tasks.

Using a phase model, the introduction of the title management system, ONIX reporting functionality and product marketing, as well as the management of the manufacturing process and the publishing rights area will be put into operation step by step. Furthermore, the modules for royalty calculation and license sales will be made available for Klett-Cotta.

Dr. Andreas Falkinger, Head of Sales of Klett-Cotta, and also responsible for IT in this capacity, sees clear advantages in the use of the system: "'Biblio3' combines the management of assets and contents with the management of metadata in one application, and therefore represents an important foundation for our working processes. We promise an increase in the efficiency of our working processes through the integration. All employees will be equipped with the 'Biblio3' system, which will have a positive effect on communication and the availability of information."

Carl-Hubertus Mann, Director of Sales and Business Development Publishing at Arvato Systems: "With Klett-Cotta, we gained an innovative and versatile publisher as a customer, which we are very happy about. The versatility of the "Biblio3" publishing solution is clear in its introduction for both Klett-Cotta's book and magazine areas and for the fiction as well as textbook programs."

Arvato Systems will present the innovations of the ground-breaking publishing solution "Biblio3" at this year's Frankfurt Book Fair. Visit the Arvato booth at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Hall 4.0 Booth F10.
