Reprints Desk Officially Rolls Out Library Help Desk Add-On Solution Following Multiple Sales and Deployments
ENCINO, CA, September 9, 2015 — Research Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: RSSS), a pioneer in providing on-demand access to scientific, technical and medical (STM) information for life science companies, academic institutions, and other research-intensive organizations has rolled out a new help desk add-on solution to the award-winning journal content access and management solution Article Galaxy. The new help desk add-on provides existing Article Galaxy customers with the option to supplement their existing Reprints Desk services with tier-one library support wherein Article Galaxy support agents review incoming library service support requests, then either respond or escalate responses to designated client counterparts. Additional help desk service level options include full-service support to resolve all library service inquiries and the option to provide a custom online help desk ticketing system and knowledgebase.
“Reprints Desk built its reputation for service and support in document delivery, arguable one of the most difficult categories to get right within the information industry,” said Scott Ahlberg, chief operations officer at Reprints Desk. “Expanding our best-in-class people, processes, technology, and 24/7 availability is a natural extension of our core capabilities and helps our clients who increasingly need to serve growing populations of end users with fewer administrative resources.”
