CircIT is a dedicated web server based system that integrates with your library's automation system for self check-out, circulation, reports, and RFID tag read/write functions. It works with most ILS brands, provides unlimited HTML-based customization features, and functions with RFID and barcode technology.
Circulation and More
Your library can perform circulation functions, and read and write RFID tags with CircIT. CircIT functions as patron self check-out, and as a staff station for check-in, RFID tagging, and for writing Smart Cards. CircIT does not require proprietary hardware.
Administrators can customize user interfaces, apply software updates, and deploy them from a single console.
"I love that this [CircIT] software is completely customizable. Libraries today are getting savvy with their brand, and the fact that we can completely change the look and feel of the software is very empowering. Our marketing department was able to take graphics from our webpage and apply them to our self check-out interface. The result is a cohesive, professional looking product that we are incredibly proud of.
I am also impressed by the ease of use of CircIT. We shopped around and compared functionality with other vendors, and what I love about CircIT is that it is so incredibly easy for patrons to use. Eighty-five percent of our check-outs are completed at the self check-out stations - therefore these workstations have to be easy to use. Since implementing self check-out at our three branches in 2003, we've learned to measure a product not by how well it helps a customer check-out an item, but how it helps a customer resolve a problem - either with their account or when inadvertently checking out a non-circulating item. CircIT's screen messages clearly communicate any check-out problems and help our patrons resolve issues at the point of self check-out, not forcing them to wait in another line to speak with a staff member."
