The Silverchair Universe

The Silverchair Universe is a framework of complementary products and services that publishers may choose to integrate with the Silverchair Platform.

Comprehensive Development & Migration Services

Migrating to a new platform can appear to be a daunting task – but with our help it is in your reach. At Silverchair, we’ve migrated many publishers to the Silverchair Platform and have developed a comprehensive and repeatable system for successful migrations and launch. Our services include:

Content Validation and Loading

We provide fully-managed content preparation and loading services, or have your staff or partners use our powerful online content validation and loading tool to do it yourself. Either way you choose, all content is processed by our automated semantic enrichment system the moment it is loaded to add extra power to search, linking, and discoverability.

Tailored Integrations

The Silverchair Platform includes standard hooks into CRM, advertising, federated search, content aggregators, reporting, and marketing systems. We also provide fully custom integration development to ensure all of your existing systems are tied closely to the platform.

Product Design

Our designers have spent years watching and interviewing scholarly and professional users and have incorporated all that they’ve learned into our interfaces. We offer comprehensive design services anchored by your brand – or include your own designers for a collaborative effort.

Full-Service Configuration

Our configuration teams work closely with your product team to determine the Silverchair Platform features most valuable to your audience. Our team then fully constructs and deploys the initial launch version of your products.

Full-Service Customization

Where your publications have unique needs not covered by existing Silverchair Platform features, we’ll work with your product owners to closely define and develop those features as a customization to your products.

Tech/Security Audit Support

As security and technical compliance gain more importance and visibility across the industry, Silverchair stands ready to support your security and IT teams with comprehensive documentation of our systems and security audit assistance.

Tools Training

Silverchair provides onsite and virtual training for publisher staff (and their agents) on our full suite of management tools both prior to and post-migration.

Fully Managed Launches

Silverchair executes a checklist of more than 150 activities at each launch to ensure full business continuity.

The Best Support Team in the Business

Your product vision doesn’t stop at launch, and neither does Silverchair’s support. Silverchair provides 24/7 production support as well as a dedicated team to assist your operational staff and perform additional product extensions.
