Allen Press announced the company's online journal hosting platform, Pinnacle, will now feature mobile optimization, called Pinnacle for Mobile. Publishers will now be able to present content across all major mobile platforms while controlling access from the institution out to the end users and their devices. Content can be displayed on iOS, Android, and RIM.
Device pairing will be a key feature for Pinnacle for Mobile and allows institutional users to gain access to journals through their mobile devices while maintaining accurate usage statistics for institutions. With accurate statistical tracking, Allen Press believes Pinnacle for Mobile will be of great use for publishers who gain revenue from libraries and other institutional subscriptions.
