Why choose Papyrus?

It's a good question. Rather than answer it ourselves, we'll let our customers do the talking. 

Trusted and tested by industry leaders

Bargain Books

"Papyrus is a well-supported, adaptable, robust, and reliable inventory management system. It feeds sales and stock data from 70+ stores to our head office seamlessly. We’ve been able to make a number of customisations and the people at Papyrus have always been willing to go the extra mile in meeting our needs."

Gerard Staudt,

Bargain Books (75 stores)

"Our business runs on Papyrus entirely, from the till work to replenishing stock, tracking sales history in categories or individual titles. It is a refined and reliable system that we highly recommend."

Wordsworth Books

Pimp My Book

"We tried two other systems but neither met our needs. Papyrus offered to build a module into their system. The project was quite a challenge as there were so many things that had to be added or changed to our unique requirements. Papyrus succeeded in meeting our needs and today the system is used in all our stores. We look forward to continuing to work with them."

Favoured by independent booksellers

"We have received exceptional service from Papyrus over the eleven years that Kalk Bay Books has been in business. The only other way to keep one’s books as well organised as Papyrus does, would be to get an Orangutang Librarian like the one from Terry Pratchett's Discworld."

Kalk Bay Books

Audrey Rademeyer,

Kalk Bay Books (Cape Town)

"Papyrus has made a significant difference to our business. We have found it to be an easy-to-use and versatile inventory control system that gives us up-to-the-minute stock information, and very efficient ordering, receiving, and invoicing functions. As a book distributor we could not have decided on a better system."

Library Service

"Our business model has changed over the years, but Papyrus has adapted with us, fulfilling all of our business needs as an inventory and records system."

Richard Hargraves,

Hargraves Library Service (2 locations)

"I received excellent training when we initiated the program and find Papyrus to be easy-to-use."

Dorothy Rapson,

Fons Libris

Mindmatters educatonal bookstore

"Papyrus is very user-friendly, extremely powerful, and constantly evolving to meet our needs. We would not be able to run our business without it. Support is excellent—just a phone call away."

Sue Hayim,

Mindmatters Educational Bookstore

"The move was seamless and their service outstanding. They have not faltered in accommodating our needs or building us customised functions when we required them. I cannot think of any other system or service provider that I would recommend as highly."
