About the Client:
Over the years, the University of Hawaii Press has grown from a largely regional press to one of the most respected publishers of Asian and Pacific studies titles in the world. In addition to publishing books and journals under their own imprint, they also market and distribute a range of titles from University of Hawaii departments and scholarly and educational publishers internationally.
The University of Hawaii Press (UHP) was looking for a solution that could handle several types of products, including subscriptions. Prior to Multipub, UHP was using two separate systems for subscription management and inventory management. They also needed a platform that would meet their rigorous financial reporting requirements.
Multipub is able to meet their financial requirements and handle inventory management with one system. It provides UHP with the flexibility to run a suite of financial reports and query data, integrates the inventory management process and allows them to track their promotional efforts.
“By making the switch to Multipub, we can now manage both products and subscriptions in one system. Having the data in a single place makes work more efficient and allows us to access a comprehensive view of our entire audience.”
Pamela J. Wilson, Journals Manager, University of Hawaii Press
