Emeryville, CA. SkyRiver announced that it enters 2012 with a significantly stronger market position in terms of customer and database growth and an enhanced software client. Recent milestones include SkyRiver's 50th installation, bringing the number of libraries served to more than 350. In addition, SkyRiver's bibliographic database, with its associated open data policy, has doubled in size since the utility's launch date.
In addition, SkyRiver continues to aggressively develop its client software, rapidly addressing client needs and functional enhancements. As clear evidence of this, SkyRiver's first 2012 client software release (the fourth in as many months) has just been deployed.
With a continued focus on delivering an economical and productive alternative to legacy bibliographic utilities, the SkyRiver user interface continues to win accolades. "It takes minimal time to train new staff because SkyRiver is so easy to use and there's a significant reduction in the number of 'clicks' from what was necessary with our previous utility to perform the same tasks," says Carol McGeehon, Technical Support Manager at the Douglas County Library System in Oregon.
