BookMine Enterprise:


All the features of BookMine Marketing together with numerous functions for bulk handling operations. These include importing data and images from any external listing in a row column format (such as suppliers inventory listings in Excel, CSV, etc), bulk data manipulation based on sales summaries, bulk invoicing, bulk transfers to other locations and much more. The enterprise version is suitable for medium sized bookshops and distributors that wish to speed up every aspect of data entry, invoicing, receipting and dispatching of goods.

An example of a feature that will save you months of expensive data entry and setting up of supplier condition records is the Enterprise Import functions. With this feature you can automatically generate your inventory records directly from your suppliers’ listings. All you require is a regularly formatted listing from the supplier with the ISBNs/EANs, the cost or RRP and discount. From these listings Bookmine will import the list, find all matches to existing records in your inventory and optionally create new records for the unmatched to be imported. If the listings have images associated with them, these will also be imported and linked to your inventory records.


These new records will then be optionally enhanced from Bookdata bibliographic listings. Supply conditions will be set up for new records and updated for existing records being imported. You have complete control over which records are actually imported by reviewing the import queue before proceeding.  This import feature alone will enable you to build on your existing inventory or even create it from scratch in a very short time. No longer have staff time wasted on mechanical processes. Give them the freedom to be more creative, generating new business on your behalf.
