White Water Writers effectively runs as a publishing company, so one of the most important tools we use is our database of books. It may not be the most exciting part of our work, but it plays a vital role in making sure that our project runs smoothly and efficiently.
Over the past couple of days, we’ve spent a lot of time updating our book database. This might sound like a tedious task (and it is!), but it’s actually incredibly important. Our database is responsible for generating all of the novel pages on our website, making sure that we’ve correctly invoiced customers for their purchases, and ensuring that our records are in sync with Amazon and IMPS3.
Without a reliable and up-to-date database, our business would struggle to function. Schools might receive the wrong books or be charged the wrong amount, leading to frustration and dissatisfaction. It’s essential that we keep our records accurate and consistent, so that we can provide the best possible service to our customers.
We are a tech charity tho – so updating the database isn’t just a matter of typing in information and hitting “save.” export scripts have been written from both Amazon and IMPS3 so that we avoid typos and see immediately if something strange is happening.
While it may not be the most glamorous part of our work, we know that our database is a key part of our success. By taking the time to keep it updated and accurate, we’re able to provide our customers with the best possible experience. So the next time you visit our website and browse through our collection of novels, remember that behind the scenes, our trusty database is working hard to make it all possible.
