Softlink will exhibit its leading cloud knowledge, content and library management solutions at the Special Libraries Association (SLA) Annual Conference on 9-12 June 2013, the company announced today. Softlink General Manager Catherine Leonard said Softlink's information and knowledge management solutions were providing special libraries across America a platform to mobilize their knowledge and gain competitive advantage. Catherine said illumin was helping libraries to shine light on the value and cost of research, and raise awareness of how information services contribute to the overall success of hospitals, research centers, law firms, colleges, libraries and other businesses.
"Organizations today are looking for transparency in terms of productivity and operational efficiencies," she said. "They want to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their services and they want analysis and proof of value in terms of contribution and return on investment to their organizations."
"illumin helps by quantifying and qualifying research and information services. It provides an effective, modern, tool for information and knowledge managers to receive, manage, track, publish and reuse queries and solutions."
"Being built for integration with email means the solution is easily incorporated into existing workflow practices," she said.
"In addition to efficient management and tracking of requests and work-loads, illumin will help libraries and research teams reduce duplication of time and effort on repeated requests, unify processes, provide a collaborative team environment (even for virtual teams) and be able to report accurately on activities and usage." Catherine said the combination of Liberty, Softlink's fully configurable ILS with illumin provides a powerful performance platform to improve the accessibility and value of any library service or information center. Both solutions enable integration with digital resources and electronic content, finance, human resource and other business management solutions.
