An organization that provides course packs for Norwegian universities will use search and repository database technology to provide faster and more affordable content delivery. Kopinor has selected MarkLogic technology to provide a new online "one-stop shop."
Kopinor had been using a manual process of providing course content, which was time-consuming. The organization represents copyright holders of published works through 22 member organizations, including five publisher associations and 17 author groups. With the new online solution, customers will be able to access content from Kopinor’s huge catalog and request books from other resources directly online. That will provide faster and less expensive service to users, while reducing Kopinor’s time and effort to fulfill orders, according to a press release from MarkLogic.
Jon Samuelson, business development manager at Kopinor, says, "By introducing an online, one-stop shop for our customers, we aim to improve our quality of service and speed of fulfillment—providing them with the ability to customize content through a much more simplified process. This would have been much more difficult without the benefit of using the MarkLogic database as a repository for content and search. It has enabled us to take our offering to the next level."
John Pomeroy, VP of MarkLogic Europe, says, "Kopinor needed a solution with the ability to manage all of the data in a single repository while allowing users to generate new content from that data. As the only database built for managing unstructured information, MarkLogic was able to fulfill that need and have a real impact on the bottom line."
