SMART RETURNS PROCESSING
ReaderLink’s proprietary SMART RETURNS program is a strategic advantage that provides valuable services to publishers.
The program provides publishers the ability to choose between three automatic sorts, Full-Copy Return, Hold for Pickup by Remainder Partner, or Destroy on Site. These sorts can be identified at the title level, allowing publishers the flexibility to choose the appropriate disposition for each title in their catalog. In doing so, the SMART RETURNS program reduces the need for freight back to the publishers, saving money, reducing carbon emissions, and takes unnecessary shipments out of a strained supply-chain. Additionally, SMART RETURNS reduces duplicative publisher handling and processing costs and provides faster, less burdensome, reconciliations.
