Influential Software, London-based suppliers of business intelligence and book/journal publishing sector solutions, has a 20 year history of delivering IT solutions to some of the world’s leading businesses – aiming to increase client profitability via a core set of objectives; to drive revenue, to underpin growth, to reduce cost whilst also reducing risk. This is achieved by the strategic deployment of data management, reporting and analysis tools, bringing transparency and order into complex business situations by empowering end-users to manage and report on their data in a centralised solution. This has enabled clients to realise past investment in systems and infrastructure by unlocking the drivers of that business – data that is often hidden deep within enterprise systems.
Munich-based Interleave GmbH and Klopotek AG have formed a development partnership, enabling Interleave to continue distribution and further development of its "MobileOrderSystem", which has now been adapted to run the Klopotek standard software for publishers.
Interleave's MobileOrderSystem is a mobile information and order entry system designed to run on laptops. The system capitalizes on the framework of the Klopotek Book Sales and Distribution system. All functionality has been re-developed to be used specifically by book sales representatives and can be easily learned and applied.
With the technical information and support provided by Klopotek, Interleave is able to ensure customers that its MobileOrderSystem will always run with the newest version of the Klopotek Standard Software for Publishers.
