Products Overview

About Our Products

At Innovative, we’re experts at putting both new and proven technologies into practice, and we have the loyal customer base and suite of products to prove it. Innovative’s products are a reflection of our company’s expertise and the energies of our partners, who work with us to develop products and fine-tune the overall technology direction of their libraries. Our products deliver ILS workflows that keep libraries up and running with millions of transactions a month, along with the latest technologies that provide exciting features for library users and the options that let library staff put their imagination to work.

Sierra Services Platform

The Sierra Services Platform is Innovative’s new strategic direction in library-system development. Combining complete ILS functionality with the power and scale of modern software architecture, Sierra will provide libraries with freedom and scalability that will carry them into the next decade. Sierra development is guided by the principles of open access, flexible deployment through services-based design, accelerated device adoption, cloud computing options, and more.


Choose the Millennium integrated library system (ILS) as the backbone of your library operations, and you’ve got a dynamic solution that’s loaded with staff productivity tools. Add modules to increase system power where you need it. For example, Innovative’s eProducts suite keeps electronic information completely under library control and fully available to library users in real time.
