collectionHQ and SOLUS Announce Joint Initiative

22 June 2017

collectionHQ, the world’s leading collection performance improvement solution and Solus, a global library technology provider, have just announced a new joint initiative to support collection management in public libraries. The joint initiative surrounds the launch of SOLUS’ ‘Gizmo’ mobile device and the compatibility of collectionHQ Action Plans with the SOLUS Staff App. Gizmo, an Android-powered handheld tool, supports the SOLUS Staff App to allow librarians to deliver better customer service by responding to patron queries, searching the collection and placing hold requests all from the library floor. The compatibility of collectionHQ Action Plans with Gizmo via the Staff App takes that portability one step further by allowing users to carry out multiple collection management tasks simultaneously from anywhere in the library. From Gizmo, users can then update item statuses and locations directly to their Integrated Library System (ILS), saving valuable staff time. More details here
