SUMMARY
Both Folio and NXT may be used behind the firewall for more effective distribution and contextually relevant access to mission critical information.

The value proposition demonstrated in the pricing models for corporate use are compelling. Also, for both the Folio and NXT products, Rocket provides Commercial Publishers with royalty-based pricing through Rocket Software Agents, such as Search Technologies. This model helps many publishers align cost of ownership to their revenues, providing a sustainable, profitable business model.
