INDIAN BOOK INDUSTRY

INDIAN BOOK INDUSTRY(IBI)wa s started in the year 1999 by the group of people who were in this field from last many years. They felt the need of computerization and revolutionizing the book industry by bringing e-commerce solution to even small regional language publisher and bookseller of book trade. www.indianbookindustry.com was booked in year 2000 and since then we are gathering information of all book trade members.

In 2001 we started with the database of 1500 members and 80000 books but due to lack of internet awareness and limited access to network it was not possible to continue, hence the project was shifted to bringing out Database of all book trade members in the form of Directories “Directory of Indian Book Industry” which was quite popular among members.

Four editions were published after the gap of three years in between. Meanwhile many international bends came in the field of e-commerce and they are quite big and popular.

We also made software for the trade in the year 2001 to make publishers' and booksellers' day to day work very easy and fast known as ibi-bookeepers. This easy window based software takes care of your • STOCKS • BILLING/APPROVALS • CREDIT NOTES • DEBIT NOTES • ROYALTY • PARTY LIST • MAILING LIST -Party, city wise • SALES REPORT - Daily Weekly, Monthly/By Book Wise, Party Name • APPROVAL REPORT- Details of Party. Dates Due • STOCK REPORT Total • BOOK WISE ROYALTY REPORT - Author Wise, Book Wise • PAYMENT REPORT (Received & given) • STATEMENTS-Daily, Monthly, Yearly.

Again this was discontinued due to poor response from trade members people were not ready for this kind of work in 2001-02. Then we brought out the CD-ROM of databases for mailing purposes which was instant hit till 2007-08. Then we focused on many directories in the field of Educational Institutions with our sister concern Reliance Publishing House, New Delhi. Our Directories were very popular among book trade and institutions world over.
