Dear all, I thought this may be of interest to some Listserve members. Damian Press Release Lisse, The Netherlands January 15, 2008 SwetsWise completes its first full year in style with the introduction of License Bank. Swets is delighted to announce the successful release of SwetsWise 5.0, the latest technical update to the most comprehensive and sophisticated subscriptions management tool currently available. SwetsWise 5.0 adds a host of additional functionalities to SwetsWise Subscriptions, the central focus of the SwetsWise platform. The most significant addition is the introduction of License Bank, a functionality that makes the largest collection of publisher license conditions in the industry available to all SwetsWise customers at no extra cost. License Bank contains a wealth of publisher license information, providing a range of additional features and benefits for SwetsWise customers: - License Bank contains 45 separate license data fields, tracked following the guidelines of the Digital Library Federation's (DLF) Electronic Resource Management Initiative (ERMI). - View which publishers require a license agreement for their journals. - View the different types of licenses that a publisher offers (e.g. site license and multi-site license). - While browsing the SwetsWise catalog, the customer can instantly see if they will need to sign a new license or if an existing license will cover the new purchase. - Detailed information on what a publisher's license agreement allows customers to do or prohibits them from doing with the related content. - Links to the actual license agreement of the publisher so customers can download it. - See which subscriptions fall under a specific license agreement. - A customer can see a complete overview of all the licenses they have already signed or are in the process of signing, complete with the current status of each license. License Bank was developed with extensive input from customers and the kind cooperation of all the Publishers whose licenses are included, with regular discussions on the original requirements, usability testing and beta testing included in the process. "The launch of SwetsWise 5.0 places a unique footprint in our industry," said Thomas Snyder, Chief Commercial Officer at Swets. "The License Bank marks the first time that such a large amount of detailed information on publisher license information has been made available in one place. We are relentless in our drive to simplify all aspects of subscription management and we know that this information is highly sought after by our customers. By working closely with publishers and a core group of customers, we have been able to make this functionality available to them in the way that they want it, which is something we're incredibly proud of." In addition to the License Bank, SwetsWise 5.0 includes new e-journals management, activation and tracking capabilities, as well as an overview of financial information, such as payments, credits and invoices. Furthermore, this new release incorporates a "multiple subscriptions" section into SwetsWise that enables users to select and renew many subscriptions at once, saving time and effort. SwetsWise 5.0 completes the first full year of development on the new, fully integrated SwetsWise platform. Since the launch, SwetsWise has reached a number of milestones. In the past year all Swets customers have been successfully migrated over to the new platform. By September 2007, SwetsWise was handling more than 1 million subscriptions and currently more than 80% of all subscriptions handled by Swets are now administered through SwetsWise. "We are delighted that the majority of our subscriptions are now being handled through SwetsWise as it proves the inherent value of the platform for our customers," said Thomas Snyder.
