Join Shane Hegarty, Head of Operations at Bonnier Zaffre to hear how the UK arm of Bonnier Publishing is using the joint application of BiblioLIVE from Virtusales and CoreSource from Ingram, to manage its data workflow from acquisition, metadata creation, codification and distribution through to gathering sales and processing royalties.

This session offers a real life approach to efficiently managing data throughout the publishing lifecycle.

The proliferation of products and formats along with changing retail markets has greatly increased the complexity of running a publishing business. As a result, the need to clearly and consistently create, curate and convey data has grown to become a significant challenge and daunting task in its own right.
