CatchWord introduced two additions to its RealPage electronic publishing solution, increasing the number of choices
available to providers of electronic journal services.
RealPage WIS (Web Integrated Solution) is made to enable publishers with established branded Web sites to outsource delivery services. RealPage SOLO (Self Operated Licensed Option) allows publishers to handle their electronic publishing in-house.
“For a publisher that wants complete control and ownership of the production and
distribution process SOLO is an attractive solution,” said Chris Beckett, sales & marketing director of CatchWord. However, he pointed out that other publishers may prefer an outsourced solution, even though SOLO is complemented with full training and consultancy options.
“Several established electronic publishers are experiencing problems in identifying commercially sensible solutions that can guarantee global availability, fast delivery and rapid printing of their material,” added Beckett. “Conventional solutions do not always serve the global customer base for
electronic journals well, since they are not optimized for Internet delivery.”
RealPage WIS is designed to ensure fast delivery and global availability of content. It extends the vendor’s original RealPage service–which has won a reputation for being the fastest article delivery system available.
