SAMS Sigma supports multiple business models enabling publishers to choose how their content is packaged and accessed. From open access to freemium, subscriptions and trials, SAMS Sigma makes connecting customers with content simple, easy and secure.

SAMS Sigma empowers institutional customers by giving them a single, seamless view across all profiles, users and analytics.
