Serials Solutions Announces New and Improved Reporting for Serials Solutions® 360 Resource Manager

Serials Solutions today announced new and improved reporting for the Serials Solutions® 360 Resource Manager e-resource management system.

Serials Solutions today announced new and improved reporting for the Serials Solutions® 360 Resource Manager e-resource management system. These reports help libraries optimize e-resource management, increase efficiency, and make informed decisions concerning budgets, collection-development goals, and patron needs.

360 Resource Manager Reports easily turn pages of raw e-resource data into powerful knowledge about subscriptions, licenses, costs, and tracked resource data. Reporting requires no special database management skills, is easy to use and allows libraries to increase efficiency, reduce effort, and lower costs.

“Our new set of standardized reports are designed to make resource management simpler for librarians,” says Jeff Aipperspach, Product Manager at Serials Solutions. “They help you manage your resources with the click of a button.”

Reports can be exported in a variety of formats to manipulate and analyze data or for distribution to stakeholders.

In addition to the new and improved standardized reports, 360 Resource Manager also offers reporting through 360 Core, including Data on Demand reporting to export normalized holdings data, Usage Statistics reporting for Serials Solutions 360 Link and 360 Search services, and Overlap Analysis. Vendor Statistics reporting and cost reports are included for 360 Counter subscribers. The new reporting enhancements are included free of charge for 360 Resource Manager subscribers.
