BA Group acquires Bertline
29 May 2020
The Booksellers Association Group (BA Group) has stepped
in to support members dependent on Bertrams' Bertline by acquiring
the bookselling system.
With Bertrams currently up for sale, and over 250
independent bookshops facing uncertainty as to the future of the
stock control system, the BA Group's technology arm, Batch, will
take over the running of Bertline to provide consistency to BA
The transition will complete at the end of June 2020, with
both Bertrams and the BA Group working closely together to ensure a
smooth handover period. The BA Group will be communicating directly
with those of its members who use the system about the development
to keep them up to date.
