Neil Wishart, CEO of SOLUS states, "We're really excited about this launch and the opportunity to bring something fresh in this space to libraries. eb#1 can be completely standalone and you don't need to be a current SOLUS or partner customer to deploy it. But as you'd expect, it integrates seamlessly with SOLUS built Library Apps and several other new services we'll be announcing by early 2022. We believe eb#1 will be affordable, from smaller libraries on up to large consortiums and accessible for all.

Premal Niranjan, Corporate Manager - Business & Technology, Eastern Regional Libraries Corporation states, "It's been a really exciting process for us to see the events and booking system, designed specifically for our library patrons from the ground up, be further developed in partnership with SOLUS for a global audience! We have benefitted from brilliant statistical reporting, feedback capturing and many other unique features, while more importantly offering an attractive and inviting showcase to our community. Now we're delighted to see other libraries using the solution because having the wider library community benefit was always our goal."
