December 17th, 2010
PROVO, UTAH (December 17, 2010) – SirsiDynix, the world’s leading provider of library automation solutions, today announced the 3.4 release of the company’s flagship SirsiDynix Symphony® integrated library system. SirsiDynix Symphony, the most comprehensive ILS available in the industry, features state-of-the-art modules for all the functionality a library needs. Version 3.4 further illustrates SirsiDynix’s commitment to libraries with efficiency-improving features for helping libraries do more with less during a tight fiscal year.
“Many of our enhancements for Symphony 3.4 are in direct response to suggestions from our customer base,” said SirsiDynix Chief Executive Officer Gary Rautenstrauch. “Our libraries are telling us they want streamlined functionality, and we’ve shifted our development resources to respond to that need.”
The improved functionality and dozens of enhancements included in Symphony 3.4 fall under the categories of:
- Workflow efficiencies, including improved searching, editing and batch processing within the library staff interface;
- Consortia support and flexibility policies, which enable deeper customization of processes, accounts and more – among multiple library branches, or across a multi-system consortium;
- Library services including wireless access authentication for library users, via the SIP Aruba wireless network integration;
- Reporting tools and organization to help libraries better collect, manipulate, organize and share the data that is crucial to their existence and funding; this includes a new built-in feature that enables libraries to show patrons how much money they saved by checking out books at the local library that day.
Current customers can view the full enhancement list by logging in to the SirsiDynix Client Care Website. For more information on the SirsiDynix Symphony ILS, visit www.sirsidynix.com/products/symphony.
