Next month, BookScan will migrate to DecisionKey®, NPD’s online suite of data delivery and analysis tools. With this change, indie bookstores will have access to the BookScan system through DecisionKey, which delivers data and insights to help improve strategic and tactical decision-making.
There will be no changes in how indie bookstores deliver data or report weekly sales to BookScan.
Booksellers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with NPD’s DecisionKey platform throughout the month of September. On October 1, access to Nielsen systems and information will be disabled.
New NPD BookScan login credentials will be e-mailed to stores on Tuesday, September 4, from firstname.lastname@example.org. NPD will also provide materials that booksellers need to get comfortable using the new online data suite, including a user guide, training videos, and a schedule of live online training sessions.
Questions about this transition can be directed to NPD’s Jonathan Stolper.
