Personnel and Customer Base
The iGroup has over 1,500 staff. Historically our core customers are academic institutions and libraries – although in recent years we have expanded into the healthcare, government, research and corporate markets. Our personnel are organized by expertise for each of these respective disciplines.
The iGroup aims to be a one-stop station for information products and library technologies. Our ability to provide a full spectrum of related products and services with localized support from each of our regional offices, establishes us as the key information industry partner in the Asia-Pacific region.
Since the late 1990s, the iGroup companies have initiated and successfully implemented many pioneering consortia throughout the region. These successes are largely due to our close working relationship and credibility with both information providers and customers. We have set up consortia in China, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia and Australia involving products from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Association for Computing Machinery, IEEE, American Institute of Physics, American Physical Society, Proquest and many more. In the era of open access, iGroup aims to play an active role in helping customers transforming toward the new model.
