Phaidon Press appoint Influential Software (http://www.influentialsoftware.com) in major upgrade to their BI offering

Phaidon Press, the world’s leading publisher of books in the Visual Arts, have appointed publishing sector and BI specialists, Influential Software, in a move to upgrade their existing Business Intelligence offering utilising SAP Business Objects/SQL Server.

With the Book market down nearly 6% on last year and the likelihood of it being some time before the industry returning to its pre-recession prosperity, publishers are looking inward with views to cut costs and focus on profit.

Following in the footsteps of other industry giants including Taylor and Francis, Elsevier and Cambridge University Press, Phaidon have called upon on the unrivalled expertise of Influential Software to improve the quality of their data and reporting systems.

John Simpson, Technical Director of Influential Software, said: “ We are delighted to be developing a long-term relationship with the team at Phaidon and look forward to assisting in improving and supporting their reporting solution with a view to increasing sales and identify cost savings”
