Alexandria, VA – Touchstone powers publishing models by providing publishers with unique, granular insights into their audiences and demonstrating the value of their content.
This new partnership between PSI and LibLynx gives publishers exclusive access to PSI’s unique dataset, a powerful suite of data that will engage and empower publishing staff.
Designed for automation and customisation at scale, Touchstone supports a wide variety of interactive and automated workflows, including embeddable reports, API interrogation, and bulk exports.
“We are really excited to be launching this new service,” said Tim Lloyd, CEO of LibLynx. “We know from conversations with our publisher partners that there’s a need for unified analytics solutions across both open and paywalled access models.”
Andrew Pitts, CEO and co-founder of PSI, said “Publishers have been petitioning us for access to the data they need to inform business decisions and communicate success to their stakeholders. We are delighted that working in partnership with LibLynx allows us to provide this data in a wonderfully accessible and usable format.”
