Scholastic

Millennium

Millennium provides in depth reporting on Scholastic book titles.  It is heavily used in New York and is in use by Scholastic divisions around the globe.

Millennium provides information used by groups in sales, editorial, production, marketing and financial areas, and includes information about inventory, sales, title descriptions, club sales and included titles, sets of books, and much more.  It allows for selection of titles by a wide set of criteria, and selection of a wide array of information about titles to be returned in the results set.  Results sets are returned in several formats including text reports and spreadsheets.

 

Orange Sheet

Process flow system replaces paper system (Orange Sheets) used to build cost budgets.  Information is entered by the Art, Editorial, Production and Manufacturing groups to develop the budget estimates for titles that have been acquired by and are going to be produced by Scholastic.  Estimates can be based on actual costs of producing ‘like titles’.  Information is reviewed by an administrator as it is completed by each group and is ‘assigned’ to the next group.  A status page allows users to see titles assigned to them.

 

OPTS

Used to track the ordering of ‘Outside Titles’ (items that are not produced by Scholastic).  It generates the OP form that is used to review and approve purchase of these titles and emails it to a list of interested Scholastic parties.  OPTS is used by Scholastic divisions worldwide.

Data is entered by Book Clubs in New York.  Once all data has been input and has been approved for purchase, Scholastic offices worldwide are informed about the availability of the titles.

 

Excess Shopping Cart

Web based Intranet system in use by Scholastic departments worldwide to request books with excess inventory.  The system has a shopping cart interface that allows potential Scholastic ‘buyers’ of this inventory to search the list based on their requirements and select the titles that they need, and helps keep inventory under control. 

 

Trade Job Tracking

Tracks the life cycle of Collateral, Art and Advertising job requests.  ‘Partners’ log into the system to request jobs that are then approved or denied by an administrator.  If approved, the traffic coordinator is notified by e-mail to set up the team and work schedule.  Once entered, the entire team is notified by e-mail.  The traffic coordinator tracks the progress of the job by entering the completion date of each step into the system.  Several reports are available to review the status of jobs that are in process.

 

Trade Sales Comments

This system allows the sales reps to communicate with management from wherever they are.  They can simply enter sales information, customer comments or problems, and management can respond easily.

 

Order Form

Used to build the Scholastic Club (Arrow, SeeSaw, Trumpet, etc.) order forms that are sent to schools.  As the titles that will make up a club offer are compiled, many changes and revisions occur.  This web application allows the changes to be put in place quickly, keeping the titles, price information, check digits and other information that will be needed to produce the order form.  It is also used to inform the warehouse of the titles that will be used in a specific club offer.  The Order Form system is used by artists that design the order form, writers in developing the blurbs, as well as by the warehouse to set up picking locations.

 

SMART

This system provides the ability for the Trade group to review and edit data on titles that are being prepared for or are available for sale through the Trade channels.  It also provides reporting on unit and dollar sales by channel, account, title and period.
