Talis is delighted to announce that the integration solution, Talis keystone has continued to grow, as a further 11 organisations have chosen the solution in the last six months, demonstrating the importance of integration of the library management system (LMS) with wider organisational systems.

Focused on generating back-office efficiencies and transforming end-user services, Talis Keystone enables integration of the LMS with other university or council-wide systems such as portals, web sites, online payment engines, finance and CRM systems via four modules.

Leeds Library and Information Service and the University of Central Lancashire are just a few of those who have recently chosen the Finance Integration module. Via this module, the librariesí ordering and invoicing operationsare linked to the finance system to deliver significant process efficiencies and benefitting from greater accuracy, due to the seamless transfer of data.

By integrating the university portal or VLE with the LMS via the Portal Integration module, the students at The University of Plymouth and Birmingham City University can soon view all of their borrower account details in one place. These transactions include loans, reservations, inter-library loans, bookings, fines and charges alongside their course related materials.

Birmingham City University, University of Wolverhampton amongst others have recently chosen to enable users to make fines payments online, without investing in costly extended operating hours via the ePayments module. This enables a true 24 hour service to be given to students whilst also offering alternative payment channels to the traditional cash over the counter method.

Working with any system in the institution that manages identity for both staff and student (student registries, HR databases etc) the Identity Management module will enable the University of Salford and Manchester Metropolitan University to create, read, update and delete borrower records in real-time to realise significant efficiency savings.

Via these four modules, Talis Keystone delivers significant business benefits to libraries seeking a robust and easy to deploy integration solution helping to promote and make their library services more visible. Working closely with the Consultancy Team at Talis, Talis Keystone is implemented to meet individual requirements, unique to your institutions needs.
