At launch, IHL’s research publishing platform has over 150 reports, presentations, whitepapers and datasets available for subscribers.

IHL Group, an advisory and research firm covering the global retail and hospitality sectors, has partnered with technology provider Content Catalyst, to launch an interactive platform for subscribers using flagship content delivery service, Publish Interactive.

Commenting on working with Content Catalyst, Greg Buzek, President of IHL Group, said; “This partnership has allowed us to refresh our research platform and make it stickier for our corporate clients”.

IHL’s new research service, powered by Publish Interactive, offers access to IHL’s research and data services. Subscribers will benefit an interactive experience which allows them to search across all content, save and share selections and export content and data into MS Office compatible documents for repurposing.

“Our previous system only allowed for download, so customers had to know intuitively which report had which information to effectively use the content. Now, with Publish Interactive, they can search keywords, find charts, clip and use for their internal presentations, exponentially increasing the usefulness of the research for our clients,” said Greg Buzek.

Edwin Bailey, Director of Marketing at Content Catalyst, said; “We are delighted that IHL has chosen to use Publish Interactive for its research platform. The intuitive search, workflow and content administration tools enables IHL Group to help its customers to save time and energy as they search for business intelligence and maximise the value of their subscriptions.”
