Emeryville, CA—Innovative Interfaces, the world's leading provider of Web-powered, Java-based automated library systems, today announced that Quick Click Ordering, a new product, available in Millennium Silver, that transforms the complicated acquisitions process to a simple tap of your mouse, has been successfully implemented at Aurora Public Library. In one easy step, Quick Click Ordering streamlines record loading by sending records directly to Millennium—the only integrated library system that supports this.
Inaugural Launch with Baker and Taylor
Quick Click Ordering is currently available with Baker and Taylor's Title Source II and Innovative is actively considering additional vendors. This new acquisitions interface eliminates time-consuming processes such as FTP setup, item-by-item MARC loading, and reliance on homegrown procedures that can be especially problematic when systems administrators or assistants leave the library. It allows acquisitions librarians to download carts directly into the Innovative Millennium Acquisitions module without all the manual steps and intervention that are required on other systems. Staff can simply select "Quick Click Ordering," ensure that the correct download profile is chosen, and click "download." The file is sent to the Millennium server, which automatically processes it through the load table.
Success at Aurora Public Library (CO)
One of the first libraries using Quick Click Ordering is Aurora Public Library, Aurora Colorado. Lisa Jones of Aurora Public Library states, “Once Quick Click Ordering was installed, it took only a few minutes to update our settings in Baker and Taylor and create a test order. Then it took about ten seconds to get through the Quick Click Ordering process! Staff members are thrilled with the ease and speed of the record transfer."
With Quick Click Ordering, library staff can create shopping carts and purchase orders, as well as perform other management functions. “By using Quick Click Ordering, the item will show up as ‘on order' within seconds,” says Eric Throndson of Baker and Taylor. “The old way is slower and low-tech. I have seen libraries where they had to put Baker and Taylor data on a diskette and walk it over to the ILS server!”
Says Ted Fons, Innovative Product Manager, “This will be a valuable time-saving tool for libraries, and will reinforce Millennium's position as a truly integrated solution.”
