This saves our customer processing time and money. We ensure that the costs are correctly calculated
By using Ferdosiinfo, our customers have the ability to reduce thousands of invoices to a single invoice which can be delivered monthly, quarterly or annually. We will check publisher invoices for accuracy against purchase orders and ensure that cost center allocation is correctly calculated. This saves our clients processing time and money. Furthermore, membership invoicing can also be separate from your regular subscription invoice.

Renewals process
Ferdosiinfo consolidates orders that are due for renewal and notifies clients before that order is due to expire. This allows for internal approval flows to take their natural course and factors in the lead-times necessary to process payment of the orders. 

 

Single Sign-On

Having to remember usernames and passwords is a common complaint for consumers of online information, particularly when accessing it via mobile devices. Furthermore, gaining access through passwords means that there is always a risk of misuse and sharing. It can also put companies in jeopardy of breaking publishers’ terms of use which usually results in legal action from the vendor. There are many companies willing to store this data on a customer’s behalf in such places as “password vaults”. However, having a whole organization’s personal passwords in one place is often unacceptable for most compliance departments. 

Ferdosiinfo has teamed up with the most respected name in single sign-on authentication – Eduserv. Their OpenAthens products enable your organization to manage users’ access to online resources securely and effectively. Because it’s cloud based it requires no software installation and can be implemented without the need for IT involvement.

Ferdosiinfo and Eduserv work behind the scenes to make any implementation of single sign-on services smooth and tailored to your organization. Ferdosiinfo manages the maintenance of the database which includes user information, access rights to content and contracts. All users see is a seamless one-click access to the online resources that have been allocated to them.
