Content Lifecycle Manager (CLM)

The Content Lifecycle Manager (CLM) module helps publishers manage their intellectual property, contributors, product lifecycle and workflow. The module offers a central repository in which core bibliographic data, associated assets and rights can be stored and organised. It forms 1 of 3 highly configurable, content agnostic software modules that make up the full suite of Ingenta Commercial – a content and IP management platform.

  • Metadata extraction allows ONIX feeds or other data extracts to be sent to trading partners, whilst a CRM system allows authors and internal and external contributors’ details to be stored.
  • Profit & loss forecasting, audit history and comprehensive reporting with simple user-created and shareable views and configurable personal and departmental dashboards.
