Just-TALENT for Publishing Companies

A talent management and administration solution delivered by a Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner

Just-TALENT: The first of its kind

Managing even a few titles can easily get away from someone. Managing hundreds of titles can make a person’s head spin. When your publishing company is doing its best to juggle different titles, trying to track them all on a simple spreadsheet is laborious, time-consuming, and prone to error. 

The first of its kind, Just-TALENT is the UK’s leading talent reporting software for publishing. No more manual work copying over countless numbers and trying to keep track of wayward financials. Get all your essential data at the push of a button. Goodbye, monotonous hours of squinting at a spreadsheet. Hello, valuable time that’s better spent elsewhere. 

Creative have curated the best of two options to suit your unique publishing house’s needs: a contracted service or a dedicated reporting software. Our close partnership with Lockside Consulting provides our clients with a quality bespoke service for any publishing companies looking to improve their talent administration.

Alternatively, we also offer our leading talent reporting software, the Just-TALENT app, for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, empowering your company to be able to do this in-house.

Centralised Data

Don’t let your essential financial data spill into hundreds of different spreadsheets. Our talent reporting software for publishing companies allows you to keep all your data in one place. Titles, statements, share lines - all in one convenient application.

Automated Reporting

Let automation do all the hard work for you. Our talent reporting software utilises the latest in automation technology to ensure your titles, statements and share lines are all up-to-date and accurate in minutes.

Title & Financial Reporting

Financial reporting on your titles doesn’t have to be complicated. Keep things clear and accessible in real-time with an overview of your publishing company’s title income and costs, as well as advances and recoupment.

Why Just-TALENT for publishing companies?

Your talent reporting should be comfortable, dependable, and follow a reliable formula. Just-TALENT utilises automation, meaning there’s no chance for human error (because everyone’s least favourite trope is miscommunication). It also means you can reduce the process of reporting from weeks down to minutes. When you’re saving that much time, you can start reporting on a much more regular basis and smooth out your publishing company’s cash flow by avoiding lump sum payments.

Who Is It For?

Clear and Concise Formats

Financial directors require clear, accurate data that’s available at the drop of a hat. Improve your publishing company’s talent commitments and get clearer reporting and overviews with Just-TALENT.

Our leading talent reporting software calculates everything for you whilst generating statements in the background. Not only does Just-TALENT calculate all the laborious sums, but distributes these statements with predetermined email templates – all of which saves countless hours in labour that can be spent elsewhere.

Easy-to-Use Automation

​​Just-TALENT is simple, easy-to-use and automates many of the laborious manual processes that take up too much of your publishing company’s time. For example, your accounts team can create and process automated self-billing supplier invoices. Talent reporting software saves time, effort and ensures that your team’s data is always accurate.

Total Data Accuracy

Talent reporting should be fast and accurate, but by creating reports in Excel, this likely isn’t the case. Reporting in Excel is often laborious, time-consuming and error-laden. Just-TALENT eliminates all of these issues. By using our talent reporting software, you can create statements in minutes with perfectly accurate data. Never worry again about the distribution of statements. With our talent reporting software, distribution is automated, quick and consistent.
