"Evolve Software Exceptional"

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.

"Evolve Review"

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.

"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.

"Great customer service"

Comments: I enjoy working with the folks at Evolve. I know that if there is an issue the owner of the company is a phone call away and that he will take care of it. I also, like that I don't have to call the owner, because the entire team takes care of any issues or needs before it gets to the top.

Pros: The customer service at Evolve is top-notch. Any report I want, they customize for me. It is also very easy to train staff on how to use it.

Cons: The webopac appears very generic. If we can update the backgrounds, I wish I knew how. Also, because it is a small company sometimes other specialized software doesn't recognize Evolve as a major ILS so they don't write their software to work with it (think wowbrary).
