I would like ProQuest to work with Talis to integrate supplier information (book & ebook prices) into the Talis Aspire product. Talis Aspire has become an integral part of our ordering workflow and other book suppliers have already taken the step to integrate using an API. For us, it would create greater efficiency in stock selection as we would not need to login to multiple websites to check for prices and would almost certainly lead to us buying more books and ebooks from ProQuest.
It would also help massively if prices shown were inclusive of VAT & discounts. This links to my other idea on the Idea exchange (https://ideas.proquest.com/forums/915946-oasis/suggestions/35999689-show-vat-and-discount-in-the-price-for-e-books)
We’re pleased to announce that we have just completed the Talis Aspire integration with Ebook Central.
This means that customers who use Talis Aspire to manage their reading list selection and purchasing will now see Ebook Central pricing and holdings data directly within Talis. Talis Aspire will also include a link to the book’s full record in LibCentral. We are committed to getting essential digital content to our users as quickly and seamlessly as possible. This integration does just that by dovetailing with library workflows and providing valuable details where and when you need them.
Thanks very much for this suggestion on Idea Exchange!
Very happy to see this move to 'PLANNED'. Any further info re: timeline would be gratefully received.
