ACC Books Publishing
The Antique Collectors Club (ACC) has been publishing high end books and magazines for over 50 years. They are renowned for their quality and are commissioned by many authors to publish and other publishes to distribute.
They have a sector leading stock management system which holds a vast amount of information about their publications including images, electronic copies, stock, prices and it manages their sales. They recently took delivery of the latest upgrade and needed a website to act as the front end to the system but bring them up to date in design and latest functionality.
It quickly became clear that the short comings of the selected CMS would adversely affect the delivery and functionality of the site. Free Rein therefore proposed our own comprehensive CMS and were commissioned to include the development of the creative concepts through to design.
The result is a multi-site system with two overlapping organisation covering two matching geographical areas. Almost every element of content including books, prices, ordering etc. is being pulled from the back office system.
They have been with us a number of years and we are on the third generation of our solutions and after a recent acquisition have new domains.
Try the sites for yourself. The simplicity is clear but the depths of information and speed of response is impressive.
