Why Choose LibLynx?
We’re not your standard industry vendor. Clients value our solutions, and here’s why …
We’ve walked in your shoes. Our staff have spent most of their careers in the knowledge industry, developing and promoting online resources or supporting the organizations that use them. We understand the processes and workflows that underpin identity, access and analytics, as well as the diverse technologies they rely on.
This enables us to engineer solutions that better fit your needs (and, in some cases, suggest approaches you may not have thought of).
We focus on solutions that deliver value to your users. Not just the ones using your online resources, but also those involved in your end-to-end delivery and support processes. Whether we’re tailoring interfaces to simplify administration, or customizing integrations with your internal systems, the goal is to deliver value. Technology is simply an enabler.
Our user-focused approach delivers:
- Solutions that are independent of your technology & platforms
- Usage-based pricing that scales with your needs
- Simple integration & automation
- A high degree of customization
We seek long-term relationships with our clients, not short-term sales. To ensure you get value from our solutions, we provide hands-on, specialist support. Whether you are looking for advice on identity strategies or detailed support on technical implementations, our team is vested in your success.
Here are some common examples of how we help you get value from our solutions:
- Assistance in presenting solutions to key stakeholders within your organization
- Advising on integration and configuration options
- Facilitating conversations with technology staff
- Trouble-shooting access issues directly with your users and/or customers
LibLynx was born out of our own frustration with traditional vendor solutions.
We understand electronic publishing – we’ve designed, built and implemented groundbreaking new online resources. And we understand the needs of libraries and other information managers – we’ve worked closely with this community and understand the challenges that librarians face in promoting e-resources.
We recognized that supporting identity, access, and analytics in-house made no sense – why reinvent the wheel given the high opportunity cost of internal technical resources. However, we were never comfortable with the vendor solutions we sourced for identity. They were monolithic, inflexible, expensive and costly to integrate and upgrade.
We created LibLynx to deliver the solutions you need.
