SAGE awards major technology deal to Publishing Technology

Publishing Technology plc announces an agreement for major implementation project of its journal fulfilment software by leading international publisher SAGE.

April 19th 2011 – Publishing Technology plc (LSE: PTO), the largest provider of software and services to the publishing industry, today announced an agreement for major implementation project of its journal fulfilment software by leading international publisher SAGE. As one of the most prominent publishers of journals, books, and electronic media for academic, educational, and professional markets, SAGE will implement Publishing Technology’s proven software across the business to align its journals fulfilment systems globally with the Publishing Technology systems that are already implemented at CQ Press, a Washington-based publisher which was acquired by SAGE in 2008.

Publishing Technology’s journal fulfilment software will harmonise order entry, billings, access entitlement and fulfilment, as well as consortia dealings, content bundling and customer service across SAGE’s business globally.

SAGE’s investment in the future of its fulfilment systems begins with its journals business and is anticipated to be extended to incorporate its book titles in the following year. As part of the new contract, SAGE will also evaluate Publishing Technology’s enterprise publishing application, advance, with a view to defining a clear upgrade path for the future, ensuring its technology stays at the forefront of an evolving digital publishing age.

Phil Denvir, CIO of SAGE commented ‘The decision to use Publishing Technology’s journal fulfilment software is a tremendous step forward in our strategy to globalise our fulfilment systems architecture’.

As well as committing to extending its journals fulfilment systems, SAGE has also commissioned Publishing Technology’s market communications and consultancy division, Publishers Communication Group (PCG), to carry out multi-lingual telemarketing campaigns to non-renewed subscribers to SAGE’s extensive journals collection.

George Lossius, Chief Executive Officer of Publishing Technology added “SAGE, through CQ Press, has been a long-standing customer of ours for many years and we are delighted to extend this strong partnership further. We are very pleased that SAGE has also commissioned our Publishers Communication Group division for their marketing activities, as this really demonstrates our full service capability of marketing, research and technology, supporting and promoting the brands of our customers.”
