Comments: It has been exceptional software and easy to use!

Pros: The company is outstanding to work with our small, rural library. They provide excellent customer service. We have found that they take time to listen to our suggestions and implement them.

Cons: Nothing as they have done an excellent job in responding to concerns for our library.

Right from the start

Comments: In a world of overpriced Integrated Library Systems, Evolve Library allows small to medium libraries with a cost-effective product, which is integral for many libraries in maintaining their autonomy from consortiums.

Pros: Evolve Library is a reliable service that is easy to use for staff and patrons. On the rare instance when we've needed technical assistance, I've always been impressed with how quickly and attentive the customer service team is to our needs. For a small to medium library system, this ILS offers a valuable, reliable product.

Cons: Integration with digital services such as Overdrive. (This could be because I'm unaware of how it can work.)

Good news, MacKenzie. We do integrate with Overdrive. We will be in touch today to talk you through it.

Excellent ILS!

Pros: The software itself is easy to use, even for new staff who have never worked with an integrated library system before. Infovision offers excellent customer service for their product and is extremely responsive to customer needs and suggestions. Even though we're a small client, the owner calls me by name every time we run into each other at a conference! Great personalized service compared to some of the larger vendors.

Cons: I can't really think of anything negative. We've looked at other ILS vendors in the past few years just to keep current on what's available, but we stick with Evolve because it best fits our organization's needs.

Comments: Evolve support is excellent and responsive. They are always willing to customize our system to meet our needs.

Pros: The software is easy to use and suits our needs as a small library.

Cons: Does not have some of the bells and whistles that other systems have. The OPAC could be a bit more modern.

Customer Support is Where It's At!

Comments: The best part about Evolve is the customer support. They provide individual attention for individual needs, whether its reports, interface features, or operating code. Support is quick to respond via e-mail and phone! They are wonderful to work with!

Pros: The software is easy to learn and easy to customize. The user-friendly interface allows staff and volunteers alike to serve patrons and work on internal processes with efficiency.

Cons: Occasionally, we've had issues with searching if one letter/number character is missing or out of place.
