March 9, 2021 -- Lehi, UT. SirsiDynix's task-oriented mobile app for staff members—formerly known as MobileCirc—has become MobileStaff. This versatile app's expanded functionality now goes far beyond circulating materials, empowering patrons with self-checkout and allowing staff members to work from anywhere.
This timely release helps libraries manage the complexities of COVID-19. Each new feature was built with safe, contactless processes as a top priority. Kiosk mode enhancements—now available for both Symphony and Horizon customers—offer contact-free checkout, and Bluetooth capabilities allow receipts to be emailed rather than printed.
Using MobileStaff, your library can provide patron services anywhere, any time. Add or edit users, manage the holds shelf, conduct inventory, capture program statistics, and circulate materials wherever your items and patrons come together.
"MobileStaff encompasses more than just circulation," said Bill Davison, SirsiDynix CEO. "Library staff members can work from anywhere in the building, and the recent enhancements make for a smoother and more efficient workflow, allowing libraries to continue offering high quality service and expanded access to materials despite the challenges of COVID-19."
