SAMS Sigma

SAMS Sigma is a customisable self-service platform for publishers that allows single sign-on across multiple content sites, and delivers unparalleled customer experience for the end user; simplifying access to publications and saving time.

SAMS Sigma removes the need for the consumer to re-register and undergo multiple verifications, as users can now sign-on with one single identity across all publications.

Leading publishers are now prioritising and investing in improved customer experience. Market forces are pushing for ease of access for end-users, and greater access control for publishers and institutions. HighWire’s system has been built to specifically address these challenges for the publishing industry, and SAMS Sigma reaches beyond the capabilities of conventional platforms, extending publisher control to include identity, authorisation and verification in one place, across multiple journals.

HighWire, the global technology company powering the discovery of knowledge, ideas and data through its intelligent publishing platform, built SAMS Sigma to support all current authentication methods, including name and password, trusted referrer, IP, library card and Shibboleth.

The standalone product has been designed to work in concert with HighWire’s platform, but can also integrate into publishers’ existing technology stacks; fully customisable on all profiles and licenses.
