Standing Orders

As part of our solution to streamline selection, Askews and Holts Library Services offer a standing order service for high-issuing, established material. 

Through our website, we have a dedicated facility for the on-line management of all standing orders – STORM. 

STORM provides users with comprehensive access to a range of features that ensure full management of your libraries Standing Orders. 

This includes: lists of recommended authors and reference material for standing order and a fully featured management information service containing the complete up-to-date profile of a standing order account - providing details of reference titles/authors on standing order, the allocation plan and to assist financial planning and stock management, a full reporting feature – all free of charge.

Making sure that high profile titles are on library shelves in time to meet demand has never been more important, we therefore offer a standing order service for bestseller titles, prize winning titles and national promotions. We believe our standing order service will help library’s compete effectively with local booksellers in the provision of this material. 

In addition to placing popular authors on standing order, we can also provide light fiction on standing order for publishers such as Mills and Boon and Robert Hale, or popular series. 

We firmly believe that customers who operate the full suite of EDI services provide a cost efficient back office operation and ultimately a better service for their customers. For this reason our standing order service is fully compatible with both EDI and our website, ensuring users have full access to titles on order to assist with reservation management, whilst benefitting from a full shelf ready service.
