Reference Tracking

The EOS.Web Enterprise Reference Tracking tracks and coordinates research requests ranging from short, factual requests to time-consuming reference questions, promoting a high level of research service continuity.

This flexible module also enables the information professional to create an online “Hot Topics” or “Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)” database which can be organized by subject area or practice group, to create a knowledge base of reusable answers and eliminating the duplication of research request work. Customizable reports are provided that help to demonstrate the value of your information resource center.
