Publishing software survey
Microcosm is excited to announce that we're developing a publishing title management web-based software program for book publishers. The service will allow publishing houses of all sizes to manage:
- products and inventory
- royalties and authors
- accounting
- orders and ecommerce
- print runs
While we’ve been using this software in-house to great effect, we’d love to learn your thoughts. Help us create the next generation of publishing software!

Your responses will be kept confidential.
