Above the Treeline: BEA Sessions & a Show Special

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Above the Treeline, the business intelligence tool that gives bookstores greater control of their inventory and the means to establish better, more collaborative relationships with publishers, will be the focus of three sessions on Saturday, May 31, at BookExpo America. Retailers and publishers who are current or prospective users are invited to attend a session designed specifically for them.

Above the Treeline is also offering retailers a BEA Show Special: Sign up in June with a six-month commitment and get two months free. For ABA member stores, that's in addition to the partnership between the association and Above the Treeline that waives the set-up fee for new accounts and 10 percent off the standard monthly fee.

Through Above the Treeline's Customer Referral Program, booksellers who refer a new retail customer can earn $100 credit towards their subscription or a $100 donation to the Arbor Day Foundation.

Above the Treeline staff will be available to answer questions at each of these sessions at BEA:

  • Above the Treeline -- Publisher Demo (Saturday, May 31, 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.; Room 511A/B/C in the West Building of the L.A. Convention Center) If you've never seen Above the Treeline, or if you are using it every day, you'll still learn something new at this session, where Treeline staff will share the latest developments. Above the Treeline is a powerful online solution providing a way to optimize any available retail sales and inventory data for use through a single portal. It consolidates store-level data from hundreds of independent bookstores, and now also accepts and normalizes additional retail data publishers are already receiving from other sources. Then, Treeline presents the data on the site graphically as well as at the most detailed level, so users can start with the big picture, and drill down to details -- from nationwide trends, down to which stores are short on a hot title. The latest version has some dramatic enhancements and opens up some interesting new perspectives on the retail market. Staff will show the new and expanded reporting and communication tools of this version, as well as overhauled versions of many of the time-tested Treeline favorites.

  • Above the Treeline -- Prospective Users (Saturday, May 31, 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.; Room 512 in the West Building of the L.A. Convention Center) Retailers not currently using Above the Treeline are invited to expand their perspective with this leading provider of collaboration-based business intelligence tools in the book industry. Above the Treeline offers retailers the ability to share and analyze information online and make faster, smarter inventory decisions. Any business not on Above the Treeline yet is invited to come and see how joining the Above the Treeline community of stores can help them see the view from above.

  • Above the Treeline -- Users Group (Saturday, May 31, 10:30 a.m. - Noon; Room 512 in the West Building of the L.A. Convention Center) Current Treeline subscribers are encouraged to join this users group meeting to share tips and tricks with one another on how to best utilize the new Above the Treeline. Above the Treeline staff will monitor the session and share some TreeTips of their own.
