Combining the rich functionality of Primo and Voyager, VoyagerPlus is delivered as a fully managed cloud-based service
Jerusalem, Israel—January 6, 2011. Ex Libris® Group, a world leader in the provision of library automation technologies, is pleased to announce the launch of the VoyagerPlus cloud-based service to the North American and European regions. The move highlights the increasing adoption of Ex Libris cloud-based services, as institutions around the world select the Company’s integrated library systems (ILS) and the Primo® discovery and delivery solution as fully managed solutions.
VoyagerPlus is available to both new and existing Voyager® customers who seek the most advanced ILS capabilities together with the rich functionality of the Primo discovery solution. VoyagerPlus is fully managed by Ex Libris to provide the maximum ease of use for library staff and a lower total cost of ownership for the institution.
The Master’s Seminary, in Sun Valley, California, recently took advantage of the VoyagerPlus program, upgrading their current Voyager environment to VoyagerPlus. ”We are excited to start working with fully managed systems for both Voyager and Primo,” commented Dennis Swanson, library director at the Master’s Seminary. ”An important factor in our decision was the certainty that Ex Libris will fully manage and support both systems, removing the technical burden from our library staff. In addition, the Ex Libris vision for cloud-based services aligns with our long-term strategy for the library.”
”VoyagerPlus is the right service at the right time,” remarked Bar Veinstein, vice president of resource management solutions at Ex Libris. ”We are very excited to offer the enhanced capabilities of Primo and Voyager in one cloud-based service.”
