Alternative to Institutional Repositories

BibApp might be an alternative to the traditional IR.
BibApp matches researchers on your campus with their publication data and mines that data to see collaborations and to find experts in research areas. With BibApp, it’s easy to see what publications can be placed on the Web for greater access and impact. BibApp can push those publications directly into an institutional or other repository.
Version 1 is due this summer, it supports tagging and should support COinS and export in RIS format when finished. They are looking for people to help with the development.

How is BibApp an "Alternative to Institutional Repositories" if "With BibApp, it’s easy to see what publications can be placed on the Web for greater access and impact... BibApp can push those publications directly into an institutional or other repository"?

That's like saying an alarm clock is an alternative to having to wake up in the morning, because it lets you know when to do it...
