Unlike similar software platforms available to librarians today, SignUp and Spaces integrate seamlessly to allow for a complete event-promotion system that publicizes both staff-scheduled and patron-sponsored events. Using the two systems together, library staff can eliminate booking conflicts, increase access to library services and make it simple to track important stats, such as registration and attendance numbers.
With Spaces, users can mediate library room booking and fully promote library facilities with a stylish, modern interface. The software works with library websites, ILS and LDAP systems. Offering enhanced flexibility, Spaces enables library staff to manage reservation requests from both individuals and organizations to ensure fair and controlled use of library rooms and equipment. Spaces' intuitive interface allows patrons to select preferred days and times for their reservations.
"Spaces is the next step in supporting the modern library as the ideal place for communities to gather and share knowledge and a love of learning," said Rob Cullin, president and co-founder of Evanced Solutions.
From now until July 1, early adopters of Spaces can lock in a lifetime price.
SignUp is a calendaring solution that enables librarians to promote events in the library, register patrons and generate detailed reports. Library staff can manage registration, attendance and wait lists online, as well as run registration and attendance reports from an intuitive staff interface. Calendars are library-branded and multimedia such as Vine videos and movie trailers can be embedded in event descriptions.
"If libraries are going to reach the 21st century patron, they have to have a vibrant online presence. SignUp is librarian-designed to better connect to today's online-offline patron," said Cullin.
