Alexandria, VA – Educational media company Infobase has selected identity and access management specialists LibLynx to provide COUNTER reporting and related business intelligence across its portfolio of brands, including Facts On File, Films On Demand, and Learn360.
Infobase sought to upgrade their in-house COUNTER reporting to take advantage of the latest Code of Practice, which offers more intuitive, flexible reporting to their customers. They were also looking for more powerful usage analytics across their diverse range of resources, covering a wide variety of platforms, technical environments, and interactive experiences.
LibLynx’s plug and play COUNTER widget enables Infobase to easily embed on-demand and real-time COUNTER reporting into any web page, giving customers the flexibility to view reports online, download files, or automate ingestion via a SUSHI feed.
Once the implementation of COUNTER 5 reporting is complete, LibLynx will deliver a variety of additional custom reports that incorporate important business metrics and provide Infobase customers and staff with a richer understanding of usage. All reporting will be delivered through the same embeddable widget, greatly simplifying implementation for Infobase.
“We are delighted to offer our customers access to COUNTER compliant usage reports through LibLynx,” said Mark McDonnell, CEO and president of Infobase Holdings. “Providing consistent and comparable metrics for all of our online resources, in the format librarians need, adds significant value and greater depth of understanding to their analytical data.”
