Batch was originally developed to serve UK booksellers. Today, bricks-and-mortar bookshops remain at the heart of our business and we are proud to be used by outstanding independent shops in places as diverse as Mauritius and Manchester. We also provide essential services to specialist academic and Christian booksellers.
At Batch, we provide the electronic systems that allow invoicing and return information to run smoothly between publishers and distributors in the UK and their customers around the world. We are proud to count among our customers distinguished shops such as Shakespeare and Company in Paris.
Chains such as Blackwell’s, Foyles, John Smith’s, Waterstones and WH Smith help to keep bookselling alive on the high street. Batch is also used by general retailers such as Tesco and Sainsbury’s to streamline the way their hundreds of stores communicate with their suppliers of books as well as multi-media and other non-book items.
