TitlePage, powered by Thorpe-Bowker®, is the Australian book industry's online price and availability service. It allows publishers and distributors to offer current price, availability and stock information to booksellers and suppliers. TitlePage was launched in September 2004 by the Australian Publishers Association to provide:
Booksellers and suppliers can use TitlePage to access accurate price and availability and bibliographic information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Booksellers have reported that access to the service outside normal business hours and on weekends has improved customer service and is saving them considerable time and money in dealing with P&A enquiries.
Publishers and distributors using TitlePage have found that calls to their customer service centres have reduced in duration and the content of the call is more concerned with ordering or progress queries rather than information queries. In addition, booksellers and suppliers are discovering some publisher's titles for the first time by using this industry-wide service.
