Why implement a Library management system
- The ultimate solution for all
A library management system helps all the stakeholders in the system. Be it librarian, faculty, student, or even the management – the high-end software allows you to view the books in the library, students that have issued them, and when it is due. Also, it allows you to see, which books are missing in the library and what new books you have to stock.
- Improved Transparency
An ERP solution integrated with a library management system allows you to ensure more transparency in the process. It doesn’t require librarians to bury their heads into the log book to map which book is taken by which faculty or student. It is an easy system where you get detailed information on every resource easily and that too in one or two clicks.
Remote capabilities allow the admin or the library in charge to access the application on their mobile phones. This gives them great flexibility to work remotely and allows them to access data and perform tasks anytime and from anywhere. Also, this increases their productivity by several folds.
Integrated analytics helps in easy report generation. Creating reports manually is not just time intensive but also prone to many human errors. This may cost the education organization to take wrong decisions while stocking up the library inventory. Accuracy with real-time updates is rendered through the high-end library management system.
- Notification System
Students coming and going to inquire about book availability is tiresome and they start to lose interest fast. With an easy notification system, you can send out notifications to the students that have raised inquiry tickets about the books in the library and inform them on mobile phones with the app internal notifications or SMS / Emails as per your preference and convenience.
