HP Inc. at the London Book Fair recently introduced HP Piazza, a pioneering set of independent and interlocking cloud-based services that enable publishers to make book manufacturing and distribution more time- and cost-efficient. Now, publishers can build a virtual warehouse for the management, automation, distribution, print, and direct fulfillment of book orders, while holding zero inventory.
“Pearson is undergoing a digital transformation to become a simpler, more efficient business and our UK book supply chain is a key part of this,” said Stephen Jones, Pearson Director of Global Direct Procurement. “We are moving from a ‘print to warehouse’ to a ‘print to order, direct to consumer’ model, partnering with our print providers, HP Piazza will support us in managing our print workflow and optimizing our book supply chain to help reduce costs and better serve our customers.”
Piazza is the only “all-in-one” view and “control center” for publishers
Bridging the worlds of book publishing and digital book printing, the Piazza platform focuses on the needs of publishers in a world where short-run digital production is an everyday reality. With Piazza publishers can control, monetize, and secure their valuable content, while growing their revenues. Designed to connect seamlessly via PrintOS SiteFlow, this end to end workflow enables accurate, transparent SLA’s management, quick time to market and reduced waste.
Piazza is optimized for HP PageWide Web Presses and HP Indigo Presses.
