PERTH, Australia, 14 July 2017: Civica, one of Australia’s leading suppliers of critical software applications, digital solutions and outsourcing services that help transform the way organisations work, is pleased to announce that the City of Canning in Western Australia is now live on Spydus10.
Spydus10 is a market leading, web-based integrated library management system (LMS) that transforms Australian libraries into digital community spaces where anyone can access, explore, share and create digital content. Spydus10’s single repository, discovery layer and simple search ensures searches are quick. The recommendations engine, a key feature of Spydus10, offers suggestions to library users based on their unique profile, making sure that they don’t waste time while searching for content.
“Civica offered a perfect fit for our service as the system gave us the flexibility that was missing in our previous LMS. Ongoing support for our future needs was another big factor in our decision making,” said Sarah McQuade, Executive Manager Enriching Canning, City of Canning.
“The implementation of Sypdus10 was relatively smooth. We have noticed an improvement in workflow already and once staff are fully trained we are very confident of achieving considerable work practice improvements. With future ongoing support from Civica our expectations will definitely be met and we will achieve the result we set out to,” she added.
“Australian libraries can truly embrace their role as the modern day digital public spaces with Spydus10. This library automation system offers both responsive interfaces and mobile apps to the patrons and the staff, thereby making the library and its resources accessible through web browsers as well as iOS and Android mobile apps,” explained Simon Jones, Managing Director for Civica Library & Education Solutions.
“From sharing content, organizing training programs and events, to managing cultural collections and digital assets, Spydus10 extends library services beyond library walls to meet the needs of fast changing communities,” he added.
