Framingham, MA. December 27, 2011. Infor Library and Information Solutions, an independent business unit of Infor, today announced the availability of a new mobile offering for libraries. The mobile offering, called NOW, is a flexible and affordable mobile solution that provides public, academic and school libraries with a mobile website and mobile app in one.
"NOW is a mobile solution that lets library users know what's happening now in the library", says Dave Alexander, sales and operations manager, Infor Library and Information Solutions. "NOW provides users access to the library's collections but also highlights information that typically gets lost within a library's online presence such as book reviews, events, recommended items, blog entries, and more. At the same time, NOW is very flexible; the solution is available both as a mobile website and a mobile app - libraries can simply choose what works best for them."
With NOW, libraries enjoy a flexible and affordable solution to drive usage of collections and services. Libraries can choose to implement a mobile site, a mobile app, or both. Libraries that already have a mobile catalog may choose to implement a mobile site and / or app that links to the library's existing mobile catalog. The NOW mobile solution also provides users integrated, on-the-go access to a library's other mobile web offerings such as LibGuides, OverDrive, WordPress, Facebook or Twitter.
NOW features a complete Content Management System (CMS), enabling libraries to update the mobile site and / or app via the CMS, through RSS feeds or even via e-mail. The solution may be custom-branded and is made available separately for each library in the app store.
