Abstract

Increasingly, information managers and information professionals have responsibility for helping everyone understand, use, and make the most of information resources of all kinds.

Item

Last week during the SLA annual conference, I enjoyed the opportunity to moderate two sessions:

  • The second was a panel discussion of buyer and seller perspectives on "meaningful measures" -- how buyers and sellers address the concept of measurement with regard to subscription products, and the impact of content products on business outcomes. 

In both sessions, and in the numerous conversations I had with other attendees who took the time to visit the FreePint booth, a number of "shadow participants" were also in the room, informing the discussion. In addition to their own needs, information managers were representing the needs of:

  • Senior executives with the financial power to sign or cancel contracts
  • End users wanting access to ever-more powerful products
  • End users ignoring the products on their desks -- often unwittingly putting their organisations at risk
  • Heads of such departments as marketing, sales and business development, all requiring more powerful tools, as well as training for their teams

Increasingly, information managers and information professionals have responsibility for helping everyone understand, use, and make the most of information resources of all kinds.

FreePint's recent product evolution supports that solidifying responsibility. The FreePint Subscription puts hundreds of relevant articles and reports into the hands of users, who can then share them with anyone in the organisation.

Just this week, subscribers gained access to new reports to share with their intranet managers, sales and business development teams, and scientific researchers. That's in addition to more than two dozen individual subscription-access articles published so far in July, each of which can also be shared with relevant colleagues.

Take a minute to complete our form, "How can FreePint help?" I'd love to learn more about your priorities and show you the value of a FreePint Subscription.
