Key Features

Why do publishers like Research Central?

  • Native apps -> UNLOCK MOBILE EYEBALLS Some publishers want to complement their own web portal with a suite of native apps but don't have the appetite to invest in building and maintaining separate mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and Android.
  • Lead generation --> We can provide qualified leads when readers show an interest. Publishers can also decide to show article headlines only to non-subscribers, or only allow access up to a certain number of reports a month for example.
  • Free to contribute --> FREE IS GOOD Provided the content is mobile friendly and relevant to our target audience, there is no cost to contribute. We charge for supplementary services around it like advanced analytics and the qualified lead generation.
  • Readership data --> Apart from the usual report level analytics, dive deeper with readership insights around specific content sections and let it steer future content creation.
  • Entitlements support --> We support basic as well as complex entitlements. In addition, entitlement management can be fully automated via our API’s or managed using our secure web-based publisher dashboard.
  • Available to all your clients --> As the Research Central apps are free to download for readers, they are available to all your clients. Not only the subset that paid for the expensive license of the terminal provider.
