Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) February 10, 2009 -- Reprints Desk, Inc. (www.reprintsdesk.com), the content workflow company, today announced the release of enhancements to its top-rated STM Document Delivery service that enables research-oriented organizations to transform article ordering and delivery into an enterprise-wide content workflow solution. Notable enhancements include the addition of web services technology capabilities that allow users to order directly from their intranets or corporate websites, and client access to the Reprints Desk delivery engine for filling document delivery orders from existing in-house library collections.
For companies who require document delivery services as a critical research support function and want to improve researchers' ability to order directly without mediation, Reprints Desk works directly with customers' IT and library staff to integrate web services. The benefits of web services for document delivery include saved time for researchers who no longer need to manually provide user-related information for each order, increased security for companies that no longer have to manage user identity access across multiple locations, and the ability to seamlessly integrate article delivery with e-detailing and consumer healthcare websites. Reprints Desk now also provides client access to its article delivery engine, enabling a single reporting view across internal and external document delivery operations and providing patrons with a uniform document delivery experience regardless of the source of the article.
"The recent enhancements to our STM Document Delivery service provide corporate customers clear advantages in service breadth and value," said Peter Derycz, Reprints Desk CEO and Chairman. "It is also a true testament to the fact that the best innovations come from listening to customers and developing practical solutions based on their input."
STM Document Delivery is a service that was launched by Reprints Desk in 2007 and recently ranked first overall and in each category in the 2008 Document Delivery Best Practices and Vendor Scorecard report by research and advisory firm Outsell, Inc. The service simplifies single article procurement, offers delivery of most articles within a few minutes to a few hours, and provides original and clean color articles by default. Reprints Desk delivers PDFs using a proprietary Adobe®-based DRM solution that requires no plug-ins.
