Techstreet Introduces Customizable Subscription Service
Techstreet (formerly CSSINFO), an online supplier of industry codes and standards for technical and engineering professionals, introduced a new subscription service that lets users pick and choose just what they need, across multiple publishers. The service provides simultaneous multiuser access to a custom set of standards from multiple worldwide locations—anywhere the user has an Internet connection. Documents are updated automatically so users are always guaranteed the most current and correct information. Standards initially available in Techstreet's Subscription service include API, ASME, IEEE, ACI, NSF, CSA, NACE, 3-A, ASHRAE, ISA, and many more.
Techstreet's president Gregg Hammerman said: "Small and medium size corporations need alternatives to the comprehensive and expensive packages that don't provide quite what they need. Because of budget limitations, many of these companies settle for single-user print and PDF documents. But these documents don't offer the critical option of multiuser or multi-location access. We recognized the need for an 'in-between' product and developed a unique licensing and pricing model. Now, these companies can obtain companywide, multiuser access in multiple locations for a price that is not much different from single-user print or PDF."
