Bookzone’s core book-related activities include:
We mount displays at industry events such as education conferences, workshops, and seminars. We also maintain and ‘opt-in’ mailing list which we use to efficiently disseminate information to a wide range of book industry stakeholders including principals, teachers, MOE officials, and booksellers.
The Bookzone team works closely with its publishers and the MOE in order to ensure that the books are current, reviewed on a timely basis, and appear on the approved lists.
Bookzone is committed to supplying quality textbooks for early childhood, primary and secondary schools that are in line with the current curriculum and syllabuses. Bookzone now represent fourteen publishers, two of whom are based overseas.
We onboard each of our publishers using a proven 7-step system which ensures that each title (textbook or workbook) is made available in the correct format, is optimally priced, and is adequately announced to the book trade. We work with our publishers to create digital assets to support our blended book marketing activities that take place using face-to-face and digital channels. By using our services, publishers get access to our integrated platforms that facilitates book printing, importation, pricing, warehousing, promotion, order taking/entry, invoicing, fulfilment, and receivables management.
