April 24, 2014 -- Emeryville, CA. Innovative announced today that over 500 library systems have now installed or purchased the Sierra Library Services Platform.
As CEO Kim Massana recently stated on his blog: "A couple of years ago Library Journal called the adoption of Sierra 'unprecedented' and things really haven't slowed down since. Sierra provides libraries with the robust functionality they need to meet user needs today and the open data platform that will allow them to adapt to changing user needs for years to come."
"Sierra has seen unprecedented adoption and penetration into public and academic library markets in a short period of time," says SVP of Global Sales Christopher Le Blanc. "Innovative now has systems installed in over 50 countries, with more libraries upgrading to Sierra each week. It's clear that Sierra is the only solution for libraries that want both solid and robust functionality, plus options for expansion and integration with both content and external systems."
