Oxford University Press (OUP) is the largest university press in the world, with 6,000 employees worldwide. They have been an Advantage client since 2001 and today, 25% of their 800 million GBP in sales flows through Advantage.

OUP recently completed a major upgrade from 11r2 to 2017.0 with a project that spanned 8 months and 2,000+ hours. The move provides them with key functionality that they can leverage in their business, including a move to a .NET environment, up-to-date PA-DSS security, a Rest API, Omnistream and workflow events. System administration is easier with this rev, as is integration with other systems.

One significant challenge of the project was consortia sales, a concept unique to journals publishing, which involves exceptionally complex rules and procedures. At OUP, access agreements for consortia orders have one bill-to, one order-by, up to 150 participants and as many as 40,000 access points, worth sometimes over 6 million GBP per order. However, Advantage was up to the challenge of managing these orders.

Kudos to the hard-working team members on both sides of the Atlantic for a job well done.

Nice work, everyone!
