Finnish publishing giant, Sanoma Pro, needed a solution that could effectively manage royalties and interact with the company’s other systems. They also needed a high-quality system to be implemented quickly and be at the forefront of international developments in the publishing industry. Not an easy task, but the Danish solution provider Schilling was able to deliver.
Like most publishing houses, Finnish Sanoma Pro – part of Finland’s largest publishing group, Sanoma – wants to effectively adapt their processes to the market. One of the most complicated tasks in the publishing industry is the settlement of royalties between publisher and author. It is complicated accounting, but ultimately it is also a process that is critical for good relations between authors and publishing companies.
All publishing houses face challenges. We needed a cutting-edge solution to manage our royalties, and it was important to us that the solution could function in a multi-system environment as this would let us integrate it with the rest of our IT platform. It was imperative for us to find a business partner we could trust and who could understand our needs – as well as deliver very quickly,
explains Salla Terho, CFO at the Finnish publishing giant.
