Make the numbers work for you
EZproxy Analytics provides advanced analytics capabilities to users of EZproxy hosted for an additional subscription. It’s a turnkey service that extracts, enriches, and transforms complex data into simple visual dashboards, making it easy to better understand and communicate e-resource ROI.
Support strategic library goals with a better understanding of e‑resource ROI
Get a holistic view of usage
Content providers’ COUNTER reports can have gaps. EZproxy Analytics enriches the usage data on your EZproxy hosted server to supply you with complete usage data across all content platform subscriptions so you can account for these gaps.
Influence decisions with data
You need the right data to support your library's goals. EZproxy Analytics leverages rich data so that you can view usage by content platform, user group, resource type, location, and more. Even access security data to monitor and prevent unauthorized usage.
Be agile with a hosted service
You know there is a vast amount of e-resource usage data in EZproxy log files, but where do you start? EZproxy Analytics is a fully hosted service that provides optimal data capacity and processing speed so that you get insights quickly.
Access your data in a few clicks
Determining the best data to query and how to visualize it can be time-consuming. Eliminate the hassle of manipulating data and creating reports by accessing out-of-the-box dashboards that highlight meaningful data for library decision making.
Customize reports for deeper insights
Maybe you want to create your own reports and visualizations to dive deeper into your data. EZproxy Analytics gives you the ability to query data points like content platform and location to create visualizations like graphs and interactive maps.
Collaborate with colleagues
Meetings are more productive if you present insights in a simple way. EZproxy Analytics gives you the ability to easily share or export reports and visualizations. Your insights will also render well on any device or screen size.
“[EZproxy Analytics data showed us that] off-campus users are the single largest user group. Very few users are actually in the library building itself. We can use this data to inform conversations around modes of delivering research support.”
