Onixsuite is a cloud-based system that allows publishers, retailers, authors, and distributors to easily create, correct, enhance and distribute book metadata, all from within a web browser.

Accurate, reliable metadata consistent with the world-wide ONIX standard is the key to discovery, sales and data management efficiency.

Available in multiple languages, Onixsuite can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection from any device. Your team can work collaboratively, no matter where they might be located- saving your company time, effort and money.

Onixsuite even comes with a fully featured responsive catalog website preview or optional e-commerce site; ensuring constant, consistent metadata all the way down the supply chain.

There’s nothing else like it. Onixsuite’s Scorecard allows full quality control of your entire metadata ecosystem, from general overview to the most specific detail.

Our Scorecard is based on solid industry standards and our priority view shows where best to apply your efforts. No more rejected files or cryptic exception reports– you know where issues are with pinpoint accuracy and can fix problems quickly, before they cause major headaches. If you don’t have an existing ONIX file, don’t worry. You can import your catalog data using our Excel template and start producing ONIX the same day.

Onixsuite seamlessly integrates the Scorecard and its catalog management tool — no more endless importing and exporting of files, no more exchanges with third parties, no need to know ONIX. Whether you fix an error or add a format, all changes are sent automatically to each of your vendors, ensuring continuity and freeing up countless hours of labor.

Our catalog management tool is easy to use, stable, and efficient. Whether you have one or thousands of titles we can help streamline your workflow, even for complex issues like sales rights management and distributor information.

Even if you distribute in many different markets and currencies, Onixsuite has you covered. And it all goes out in your ONIX.
