Regardless of your choice, your branding is always front and center and your content is easily accessible on desktops, laptops, phones and tablets.
Search & Discovery
When it comes to content delivery, relevance is key. Help users discover your content by providing sophisticated search and multiple types of personalized alerts. Add taxonomies, recommendations, and other tools to increase the relevance of your content to individual customers and drive engagement.
Identities & Authentication
Build stronger relationships with customers by knowing how they arrived at your website, their organizational affiliations, and the campaigns in which they’ve participated. Authenticate users by login and password, IP address, Shibboleth, OpenID, Athens and more. Implement single sign-on across products and websites, and set up tokens to give users access to content on a limited basis.
Licensing & Commerce
Maximize your content’s monetization potential by employing a variety of licensing models including institutional and individual subscriptions, concurrency-limited access, pay-as-you-go, and metered access. Advanced offer management allows you to create new products with ease and employ differential pricing based on the customer’s identity and history.
Web Content Management
Create new template-driven web pages, such as aims and scope and editorial board pages, with our Page Builder CMS, or edit the HTML directly in advanced mode. Upload files, compare revisions, and preview, approve, or revert changes easily. You can even edit snippets from multiple web pages simultaneously. Page Builder provides a growing library of drag-and-drop widgets developed specifically for STM publishing. The widgets draw on the publisher’s live content, data, and configurations from Literatum’s back end, making it possible to stage, review and roll out new features within minutes.
Get a whole new view of your customers. Automate the extraction, transformation, and loading of access and commerce data to a reporting environment with a well-defined star schema. Then schedule and run out-of-the-box reports or use an OLAP tool of your choice to generate custom reports.
Achieve single sign-on across your products, even if they’re on different websites with different domains. Keeping customers happy is essential to keeping them loyal, and single sign-on makes it easy for customers to use multiple products simultaneously; you also gain a better understanding of your customers.
Manage the subscription lifecycle, including adoption, extension, renewal, cancellation, and upgrading of accounts. Subscribers are highly valued for the recurring, predictable revenue that they provide; entice users to become subscribers with free trials and reward them with complimentary upgrades.
