Barnes & Noble
"Barnes & Noble has long been a supporter of BISG because of its many contributions to the publishing and bookselling industries. BISG has worked with its members to help create the standards, policies, and best practices that have increased efficiencies and benefited all of us."
Ingram Content Group
"As a corporation in the middle of the supply chain, serving publishers, retailers, and libraries around the world, Ingram finds the standards developed under the auspices of BISG and its committees invaluable. In a business which is incredibly complex at its core, the development of standards for use by trading partners is critical to maximizing our resources in the development of trading partner exchanges. The BISG website and educational seminars are also valuable for 'getting the message out' to the thousands of firms that are the book industry. Ingram is a long time supporter and activist in BISG committees and other efforts and we look forward to supporting the organization for years to come."
Independent Book Publishers Association
"BISG is the industry 'watchdog' and can always be counted upon to be at least three steps ahead of any issue that affects the supply chain. Speaking for the 3500 members of the Independent Book Publishers Association, I know that we all look to BISG as the premiere authority when it comes to research and application of book industry standards."
Hachette Book Group
"BISG is an invaluable resource for HBG. BISG provides the forum for all members of the publishing supply chain, large and small, to collaboratively create the standards and best practices that foster open and efficient interaction, and benefit the industry as a whole. Moreover, BISG's educational efforts, their partnering with other publishing organizations in the US and abroad, and their dedication to the future of publishing in a digital world make us proud to be a long-time member and supporter of this outstanding organization."
