Usage Monitoring Software for Online Subscriptions & Installed Applications

Get detailed per-user, per-service usage data for all your web-based subscriptions & installed applications

Companies are spending millions on web-based subscriptions, but how do you know if your firm is fully utilizing these valuable services? Wouldn’t it be great to have a usage report you can trust, instead of relying on vendor provided usage statistics?

Are your researchers and other users taking advantage of the subscriptions the firm has licensed already? Wouldn’t it help if you could extract detailed reports on an online subscription and see how effectively it can be used? Are you relying on inaccurate vendor provided data or manual surveys?

ResearchMonitor acts as your online resource usage monitoring software solution and is designed to empower you across these areas.

Understanding the actual usage of online resources

Visibility into the actual usage of online subscriptions — such as market data, research & SaaS licenses — as well as installed desktop applications (including terminals) is very important. Having a centrally controlled system where you can compare the basic usage between multiple vendors, provides you with valuable information at your fingertips.

Detailed usage statistics help you identify gaps in internal training & processes and categorize the sections of a subscription that are being heavily used. This helps you negotiate better contracts and allows you to streamline research & other information services workflows within your organization, driving operational efficiency across the board.

Customized usage capturing

ResearchMonitor’s Usage Monitoring module helps you understand the value proposition of an online platform. Usage is captured at multiple detail levels, such as sessions, databases, search strings, and downloads. While every resource in ResearchMonitor is configured to monitor basic details — like start / end of session, duration, page views — it is also a platform to build on your individual requirements.

You might be specifically interested in recording search terms on one platform while on others you might be looking for the number of times users have downloaded a pdf or an Excel report. Another instance might be where you are just focused on the number of hits on a specific section of that website. This list is endless!
