How the Publishing Industry Benefits from Customer Feedback and Data Management:
Publishing, in the 21st century, is an industry facing many challenges such as: dynamic market conditions, strong competition from other publishing companies and the impact of technological advances due to the advent of e-books and other electronic resources. While publishers historically published books, newspapers and magazines, the industry has recently expanded to include non-print media. Other technological advances include Espresso Book Machines that can produce on-demand printing for books, collating, binding and covering a book in just a few minutes. This allows customers to immediately access "out-of-stock" books and eliminates the need for warehousing and shipping, resulting in a significantly reduced environmental impact.
The publishing industry encompasses all stages of publishing from acquiring manuscripts, through editing, graphic design and printing, to marketing and distribution. Some publishing companies act as contractors, subcontracting different parts of the process, proofreading, illustrations, design, etc. to other agencies or to freelancers. As such, a publishing house may have many people working remotely and will need access to fast and reliable communications with, and feedback from, other team members.
