Reliable software and the team at Booksystems is always able to help me when I have questions
Time, I save time.
I spend less time training, explaining and looking for ways to do something.
I can bring someone in and have them checking in and out to patrons in five minutes.
I can cross train staff to do pretty much anything this software does so absences do not slow us down.
I can import books as I order them making fewer steps in processing for the shelves.
If I have a group of items I want to reclassify for circulation, I can do them all at once.
I can go on vacation and know that the software team will help them if they are not sure what to do.
I could keep going because about once a week we find something else it does that we did not know. I am not saying that training was not good, Atriuum just does so much that it is impossible to take it all in. We went the cheap route on training because of budgetary issues but that did not leave us unable to do everything the software can.
Pros: Updates only add to the software. They do not take away reports that I use or completely change things so I am lost. When you log on after an update you are greeted with a notice and information about what they did and how it can be accessed to help you. Easy to navigate between check in, check out, patron look up. You can also have multiple screens open at the same time to switch back and forth.If your internet is down, the offline checkout takes over and when it comes back up it automatically updates your circulation. A lot of reports and settings are customizable to the user. The OPAC interface has theme controls to change the look for your patrons from season to holiday with good graphics. Easy to add bibs/patrons to the system, Import/export, modify exiting records, batch changes. I can access my system with my smartphone to see if we have a book while shopping and so can my patrons. They are up to date with mobile tech making it easier for my patrons to access their accounts. Customer support is friendly and always helpful. There is no nickle and diming you for every little thing they can do to make their software more functional to you. A lot of settings are helpful with state survey and other reporting to necessary entities. If you are unsure of how to do something, someone is always able to walk you through and hold your hand. This is my 3rd automation software and I will not be looking for a fourth.
Cons: I do not like it when I call them to tell them the software should do something and they tell me "it already does" It is a lot to remember because it does so much. I have learned to use my help search.

Nothing better in my opinion!
Comments: I switched from KOHA 4 years ago. Atriuum is easy to use, customize-able, and customer service has always been helpful and quick to address any problems.
Pros: I can run ANY report I want to run. Other softwares are so limiting...if I want to know how my Westerns are checking out, I should be able to run a report. That makes me a better librarian...right?
Cons: Initial training is free, but on-site and extra training costs a lot. Worth it, though!
