Sierra Services Platform
Sierra is a next-generation services platform built on a open systems architecture that provides a library with access to its circulation, technical services, and patron data through an open relational database and a suite of documented application interface extensions. Unlike other systems, Sierra offers out-of-the-box, fully-featured library workflows and integrated resource management delivering the functionality and performance that libraries trust to run their operations.
Encore Synergy brings true discovery to library users by offering social features, faceted search, advanced relevancy ranking, peer-reviewed articles, digital collections, books, and more. Regardless of your current integrated library system, you can implement the most complete discovery solution available for today's libraries.
Innovative's new performance and collection management tool examines your library's comprehensive data and makes automated recommendations. Optimize collections, weed more efficiently, and budget effectively for the future with Decision Center.
