This partnership will enable scientists and other researchers to efficiently locate research materials they need and browse articles of interest via their mobile devices.
Sunnyvale, CA – February 12, 2014 – Boopsie, Inc., the leading mobile solution for libraries, announces its partnership with Parity Computing Inc., the leader in intelligent automation solutions for the Science, Technology, and Medicine (STM) industry, to provide mobile apps and efficient analytics services to libraries. The partnership is focused on providing rich search and recommendation services to academic and corporate libraries.
Parity provides powerful data mining, analytics, and decision-support systems for STM publishers and research institutes. Semantic analysis is a core part of Parity’s approach to deriving insights from large, heterogeneous, and often unstructured data sets. Parity’s Semantic Profiling Engine™ – applied to corpora of scientific, engineering and medical literature, business documents, and clinical records – enables applications ranging from automated publication profiles of scientists to journal, article, and grant recommendations.
“With the increased adoption of BYOD, we’ve noticed a growing need for more efficient mobile access across all platforms via native mobile apps,” says Steve Nathan, CEO of Parity Computing. “Corporations, publishers and government entities are in need of getting more use from their subscriptions to scientific journals, and Boopsie’s native mobile apps have been successful in increasing use for their partners.”
Parity’s faceted search combines the power of search with that of navigational browsing using different hierarchical categories including ontologies. Users can navigate multi-dimensional information spaces by combining keyword search and progressively refining their search using the hierarchical categories.
“Parity’s semantic technology coupled with Boopsie’s native mobile app platform, will help scientists and other researchers reduce the amount of time spent looking for the materials they need and quickly explore articles of interest,” said Dr. Mohan Paturi, Parity’s founder and Chairman and Professor of Computer Science at UC San Diego.
Boopsie’s mobile apps, developed in tandem with corporate libraries to address the unique needs of their users, make it easy for users to find the right information via a simple, intuitive interface. With comprehensive support for multiple mobile platforms, Boopsie mobile apps address the needs of diverse users. The Boopsie Analytics™ platform provides detailed usage statistics that can lead to critical insights necessary to develop and monitor a well-informed knowledge strategy for the organization.
“Improving access and reducing the amount of time to find the right information are core tenets for Parity and Boopsie,” stated Christopher Mundy, Director of Business Development for Corporate & Government Libraries at Boopsie.
“Our goal is to make the information research workflow more efficient so that researchers can spend more time generating valuable insights for their organizations, and help enterprise CIOs turn their digital libraries into a profit center,” says Tony Medrano, Boopsie’s CEO.
System integrators that build digital libraries for corporations are encouraged to contact Boopsie with partnership opportunities to help drive increased usage from corporate libraries.
