Our clients include trade and professional book publishers ranging in size from startups to multinational corporations.

Software Selection

We work with publishers to help them select the book publishing software that is best suited for their current and future requirements.

Software Support

Kensai International distributes and supports the royalty software solution EasyRoyalties in North America and Asia. EasyRoyalties is an affordable and powerful royalty and rights management solution for small and medium sized publishers.

Rapid Software Implementation

We have a track record of rapid software implementations, with many publishers going live within one to three months. In 2011 we guided 20+ publishers through royalty software implementations. We guided Longman Publishing, Nigeria though an ERP implementation in two weeks,  implemented AcumenBook for Springer publishing in one week and implemented royalty software for the Museum of Modern Art in 100 hours.

Consulting Services

“You are the bright light in a dark sea of consultants” – publisher client

Publishers call on us when they need to jump start sales, improve business processes, evaluate an acquisition or require the services of a temporary CFO.

We work with small publishers that use Quickbooks, Dyamics GP, J.D. Edwards, MAS90, Net Suite, PeopleSoft and SAP.


We are a privately-held corporation based in the United States. Since 1997 we have advised publishers on how to improve their operations and software vendors on how to better market their products to publishers.
