Vanden Broele expects further growth with Klopotek software
The Belgian publisher Vanden Broele, based in Bruges, has chosen a Klopotek inhouse installation for handling all aspects of title management and contracts, rights and royalties management. Vanden Broele, who specialize in social, political and legal topics, will use the software as a CRM system.
Other areas covered by the Klopotek system will include online sales, subscription
management, order processing, and distribution. By opting for an in-house system the choice was made for a highly flexible solution, which, when needed, can be easily expanded.
"Vanden Broele Publishers is in a phase of intense expansion – a growth that I can
only applaud and, wherever possible, try to encourage. But the other side of that coin is that process, product and organization management is coming under increasing pressure. To help us relieve that pressure and to keep an overview, we started looking for the right tool. The list with requirements was long. The list with appropriate solutions was short. As alternatives were discussed and compared, one candidate continually came out on top: Klopotek, an end-to-end software package that has earned its stripes in Belgium and abroad.
The many possibilities which Klopotek offers will allow the 25 employees of Vanden
Broele Publishers to continue working with the same verve. Now we’ll be able to rely
on consulting services to build on best practices in the sector, instead of re-inventing the wheel every time a new project starts.
We’ll also be able to begin employing new functionality in a step-by-step process to
explore paths of which we currently have little or no knowledge. So growth stimulates further growth.”
