SoutronSOLO the LMS for Smaller Libraries

SoutronSOLO Library Management System for Smaller Libraries View our Library Management System for Larger Libraries

SoutronSOLO is designed with the solo librarian in mind and as such has been customised to reflect a reduced set of needs.

It borrows a number of features from the Soutron Library System but it is distinct and different.

Soutron for your Library Management System

There are no “modules” just a single integrated system with the core functions needed to operate a library service. This smaller cost effective solution suits the needs of part-time or solo librarians who work within a smaller library with a small budget.

No matter what the size, it is still very important however to harness the latest web technologies to maximise efficiency.

Keep things simple

Put your library system in the Cloud Cloud Based Library Solution

SoutronSOLO is a Cloud-based system so there is no call on your internal IT department to implement or provide support.

You provide us with your data and we provide you with a URL to your new system No need for on-site visits (unless you really want to see us) it’s all done remotely which means reduced implementation time and reduced costs.

All updates and changes are done automatically without the delays often experienced with internally installed systems. The system is purposefully simple to use, training can be done ‘live’ over the web to suit your needs, either all in one go or in bite-sized chunks to suit users.

Oxford University, St Edmund Hall College“We fell out of love with our previous software supplier. The upgrades process was also putting a strain on our own IT department, but thanks to Soutron and their new Cloud Based solution we now have software that is taken care of for us, much to the joy of our own IT department. We also really like the simplicity of field editing.”

St Albans and Hertfordshire Architectural and Archaeological SocietyAs a modestly-resourced county historical society, we are very much looking forward to going live with SoutronSolo very soon. It promises to be a splendid vehicle and solution to help promote our library and growing collection of research materials to those with an interest in the architecture, archaeology and history of St. Albans and Hertfordshire.
