Global releases SOX compliant UNISON system for publishers

UNISON 6.3, Global Turnkey Systems’ industry-leading business software for publishers, is scheduled for release in December 2005.  Important new and enhanced features reflect the significant changes occurring in the publishing industry.  New and existing implementations of UNISON can take advantage of these features and more:

·        Sarbanes-Oxley compliance features – including encryption of sensitive data, new audit trails and enhanced data security

·        Expanded web services (eUNISON) – XML-based SOAP architecture allows the UNISON business logic to interact with websites and other systems; additional APIs for payments and customer service further extend core business logic to external applications

·        ISBN-13 is enabled with support for prior ISBN and future structures

·        The already robust subscription and circulation module is further enhanced to accommodate today’s multi-media, multi-platform publishing product suites. 

GTS continues to lead the way in publishing-specific fulfillment systems by offering robust, relevant functionality in a scalable, technologically powerful architecture.  For more information, please contact sales at Sales@GTSystems.com or call 800-524-2132 x604.
