Innovative Interfaces announced in May 2012 that it would develop a new institutional repository platform called Content Pro IRX. The product is built as an optional module to its Content Pro digital asset management system, designed to manage the types of materials that academic institutions place into institutional repositories, such as academic articles, conference papers, theses or dissertations, and other institutional documents. Following a phase of development and beta testing, Content Pro IRX has been implemented in an internationally diverse set of academic institutions, including the ELNET Consortium in Estonia, the SEALS consortium in South Africa, the University of Malaysia, and California State University, Long Beach.
Innovative also reports that Sierra has seen success in academic libraries. In the first half of 2013, 50 academic libraries have signed contracts for Sierra. These academic libraries span most of the global regions in which Innovative operates, including North America, Asia, South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia.
Since the corporate reorganization where SkyRiver Technologies transitioned from a separate company to a cataloging service offered by Innovative, the number of libraries opting for it has continued to grow. In recent months Innovative reports that three public libraries have signed for SkyRiver, including the Oakland Public Library, East Lansing Public Library, and the Monterey Public Library.
