PubEasy Service knocked out by Storm in NE USA

Update, 3pm, 02/11/2010: Service has now been resumed (h/t Andy Rigby & John Duncan). Brief report at Publishers Weekly: Bowker Back Online After Nor’easter Causes Outage

Update, 01/11/2010: As noted in the comments by Luke Hughes-Bunger, the issue is with the PubEasy server, not the suppliers themselves. Orders placed by other channels (email, fax, telephone or suppliers’ own websites, for example) should still be processed as normal.

PUBEASY.COM, the online trade ordering service and a vital link in the supply chain between many booksellers, publishers and distributors, has been knocked out of action by a storm in the North East USA, according to an email sent out to service users over the weekend:

To all PubEasy Retailers:

Due to storm in the Northeast U.S., the PubEasy site is currently unavailable to all users. We estimate that the system may be down for several days. We will send updates to our PubEasy user community as soon as they are available.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will send more details as they become available.

Best regards,
PubEasy Support

Christian distributors and publishers which use the PubEasy service include, amongst others, Alban Books, Lion Hudson and SPCK, via Marston Book Services; Cambridge University Press; Church House Publishing, Darton Longman & Todd and SCM-Canterbury Press along with others serviced by Norwich Books & Music; Continuum, via Orca; HarperCollins; Hodder, via Bookpoint; and John Wiley & Sons — in short, most of the major players in Christian and wider religious publishing.

My thanks to Andy Rigby of Christian Bits for forwarding this email.

  1. It’s worth noting that the issue is with the PubEasy server, not the suppliers themselves. Orders placed by other channels (email, fax, telephone or suppliers own websites, for example) will be processed as normal.
