Annoys me when software can be good but support pants - and vice versa. MLS have always been fantastic to deal with, especially compared to some people but the software is just so shoddy
Thanks for the alternative suggestions, I'll get some information together and present to the school Monday

I would like to +1 for Accessit Library. We have had the system for a while now (2/3rd year) and so far had no problems with it. in all honesty that may be because we haven't utilised properly and our Library database is yet to be added in it's entirety but all that will change very soon i hope.
Support is very good. I contact Support, they email me back same day. I request a file of some sort, they email me a link to download it. They have even converted a Database file from a previous version (10.4 compatible) to 10.5 as when Apple updated the install procedure failed over night, ready for download in the morning. One of the reasons to work with companies in New Zealand.
I like the software. It comes bundled with a web-based browser as well so the library can be viewed online.
It can also be split from the server running the library database, which is what we intend to do, but i cannot confirm this to work since we haven't tried it yet.
But overall, a thumbs up from me

I like AccessIT and have found SoftLink to be a really helpful bunch too.
I'm tad annoyed that MLS have changed things without telling folk ... we spent some time sorting things out with them to get things running smoothly. Oh well ... this will be fun to pick up tomorrow.

Rather hoping the school involved might elect to roll back to Junior 3.
On which note yet to have a reply from MLS about that... must chase up today.

Saw it at BETT, and have a demo in a few weeks - looks really slick. I know looks aren't everything, but it should help in promoting the Library to the students.

We have been using Oliver from Softlink for the past year and it's fine. Librarian has been off sick for some time so guess who ended up doing that job as well as fixing computers??? Anyway it's simple to use and so far we haven't had any problems.
Softlink have good tech support as well. I'm happy to recommend it.
