September 20, 2012 -- Emeryville, CA. Innovative announced today that the West Des Moines Public Library has selected the Sierra Services Platform and Encore Synergy for a complete library technology solution. The Library will be migrating from a SirsiDynix Horizon ILS.

"The value-added features in Sierra will free staff to focus more on the Library's customers. We were very excited by the cost-saving potential of some of the patron-management functionality, allowing us to lessen the number of patron notice mailings," says Director Darryl Eschete.

The Library has also selected a suite of products, including AirPAC for Smartphones, Circa Wireless Inventory, and Program Registration to provide a complete solution to support its community of patrons.

Continues Eschete: "The integrated Program Registration and the AirPAC for Smartphones mobile catalog will assist in providing first-rate service to our community. The Encore Synergy discovery tool will offer single-search capabilities to access our library materials, e-book collections, and databases."
