Bonnierförlagen increases their efficiency by 30% by streamlining their contract, rights and royalty processes
Sweden’s largest publisher, Bonnierförlagen, is constantly staying ahead of the competition in the publishing industry. Bonnierförlagen is proactive and always seeking new ways to improve their business processes and has, together with Schilling, successfully streamlined their processes for contracts, rights and royalty.
Bonnierförlagen and Schilling have had a close business relationship for the past 17 years. Bonnierförlagen is using a full Schilling publishing/ERP solution and they have played a vital role in the development of Schilling’s solution for management of contracts, rights and royalties (CRR) that Schilling offers to all other publishers as well. For Bonnierförlagen it was important to be part of the creation of a CRR solution that supports and grows in pace with their needs, continuously ensures the most efficient solution both in terms of value and cost, and provides a complete overview of their rights.
“We constantly work at improving our internal processes. When handling complex processes including author contracts, rights and royalties, we know how important it is to have a well-functioning and fully integrated IT system to support these processes. The return on investment so far, looking at how our processes have been improved, has been highly satisfactory. We estimate that the project as a whole has given an increase in efficiency of 30%, and our guess is that the Schilling system accounts for half of the impact”, says Anders Vendelvik, CIO at Bonnierförlagen.
“Bonnierförlagen has for many years been a valued customer of Schilling. Our relations with Bonnierförlagen are very important to us. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have a customer like Bonnierförlagen helping us develop a standard state-of-the-art solution for contracts, rights and royalties that controls all your assets and mitigates risks”, says Kent Valentin Fallesen, VP of Sales at Schilling, and continues: “We look forward to working with Bonnierförlagen to see the positive impact that new products and further standardisation will have on their operations and performance.”
