Batch for Books is a new electronic invoicing system created for booksellers and publishers in the U.S., and attendees at this month’s Winter Institute in Baltimore have two opportunities to learn more about the service.
The education session “Operations: Batch for Books” will take place on Wednesday, January 22, from 10:40 a.m. to 11:40 a.m. in the University Ballroom on the first floor of the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards.
CEO Fraser Tanner will moderate a panel of U.K. and U.S. booksellers who have been part of the U.S. Batch for Books beta test. The software-assisted service, based on the version used in the U.K., helps initiate payments between vendors and bookstore retailers at no cost to bookstores.
In addition, one-on-one appointments with Batch representatives will take place in Poe B at the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor during the following periods:
- Wednesday, January 22: 9:00 a.m. to 11:55 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
- Thursday, January 23: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
- Friday, January 24, 2020: 9:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
