New offering protects budgets and simplifies vendor billing for academic, government and corporate library customers
Shallotte, NC (MMD Newswire) April 9, 2013 -- WT Cox Information Services today announced a new spend management offering, which enables WT Cox customers to more easily manage literature acquisition spending by providing single-source invoicing for document delivery via Reprints Desk. Academic institutions, government organizations, and corporations use document delivery as a legal method for retrieving single copies of full-text papers from scholarly peer-reviewed journals when subscription access does not exist and as a supplemental alternative to interlibrary loan (ILL).
WT Cox subscription customers who activate this option will set up a vendor account with Reprints Desk, but instead of receiving a monthly invoice from Reprints Desk and paying Reprints Desk independently, WT Cox customers will be billed by WT Cox and submit payment to WT Cox using their established systems and workflows.
"Providing Reprints Desk services directly to WT Cox customers is beneficial in that our libraries can now create a deposit account and access document delivery services all within their existing payment methods. As an information partner, this is another important service that we can offer our customers to save their library time and money," said Michael Markwith, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
