securely distribute your content.
As a commercial publisher, controlling the use and distribution of your valuable content is your top priority. Folio Publisher allows secure distribution and rights management functionality. The Rocket Folio product suite incorporates features and enhancements that come from years of satisfying the needs of publishers to secure the value of their content in the electronic environment.
control user access.
By managing access down to the paragraph or record level, you can distribute the same information to multiple users and retain control over who can and cannot access subsections of the information. You’ve got the power to decide whether users can edit, annotate, export, print or copy to the clipboard. Plus, by controlling concurrent use of an information title, you can distribute information within an organization without fear of the number of concurrent users exceeding the number designated in the sales agreement. And you’ll sleep soundly knowing that encryption technology secures your information from unauthorized use.
generate ongoing subscription-based revenue.
Advanced rights management technology lets you control who can access your information, what users can do with it and how long they can use it. Plus, you can designate expiration dates or time-based cumulative use for information collections, or generate passwords to unlock secure or expired data for particular customers. This allows you to generate subscription-based revenue from electronic titles year after year.
grow your electronic title business.
Do you want to create a single infobase that contains all related data for a subject, but sell only selected parts of that information to a user? Or, do your users not want to buy all subject information available since they are only going to use a small piece of the data? With record-level security options, you can set up a single infobase with different levels of access, including how much of the infobase a user can see. This allows you to generate new revenue from existing content by selling varying levels of access.
track end-user usage.
If tracking usage is important, our partners offer meters that leverage the Rocket Folio Integrator APIs— making it possible to enhance the design of your information and to explore alternate or additional billing methods for use of your copyrighted content.
develop content, not software.
Your business centers on compiling and distributing professional content to your customers. The last thing you need to worry about is developing software. Rocket Folio Publisher provides a robust, highly customizable, out-of-the-box software solution designed specifically to meet the needs of professional information users. Join the many professional publishers who profit by using the Rocket Folio product suite as a standard for compiling and distributing commercial electronic titles.
get flexible with content distribution.
Today there are so many options for distributing electronically published titles. Folio Publisher enables you to securely distribute your valuable content over the electronic medium your customers require—be it CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, personal computer, LAN, Internet or corporate intranets. What’s more, the infobases that hold your content are self-contained, making distribution even easier.
compress your content.
When your information is converted, it is automatically indexed for rapid searching and compressed to reduce storage space requirements. On average, compression reduces the size of your content by 65%, even with the full-text indexing. This maximizes storage resources, allowing you to put even more content onto a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM without incurring additional expense for you or your customers.
give users control over information.
Publishing with Rocket Folio technology maximizes the value of your published information to your customers. A special version of Rocket Folio Views is included in Rocket Folio Publisher for redistribution and gives users complete control over information.
get instant, accurate answers.
Even the largest collections of information feel like small documents with Rocket Folio. It provides the speed and flexibility to satisfy the search needs of both new and experienced electronic information users. Your users find answers fast, even within several gigabytes of free-format information containing graphics, sound and video objects.
tailor your user interface.
Folio Publisher makes it easy for you to tailor the user interface to the information you’re publishing. This not only optimizes the customer's experience, it also helps you differentiate the look-and-feel of your published titles from those of competitors.
