ASR stands for "Automatic Stock Replenishment", a service designed to ensure perpetual availability of your key titles. You choose which books you need to have in stock, and we'll make sure that they're always to hand.
Working in tandem with our trusted print-on-demand partners our system will automatically reorder stock as and when required.
We created ASR with the primary objective of making stock ordering as pain-free a process as possible. Our analysis, carried out over decades in supply chain management, shows that availability is a key driver of sales. Naturally we like to do everything we can to ensure the success of our client publishers.
We don't just flick a switch and leave our system to it: we have a dedicated team to help our publishers get the very best out of the service. We'll only move to full automation when our clients are absolutely comfortable that ASR is working exactly the way they want.
If you're not already distributed by us please contact Gina Walpole (Gina.Walpole@ingramcontent.com) to get the ball rolling.
