Abstract: Sagebrush Corporation announced the release of PatronPorter for Spectrum, a conversion program that easily converts existing patron data so it can be imported into Winnebago Spectrum.

Minneapolis, MN, June 3, 2002 – Sagebrush Corporation, a leading solutions provider for the K-12 library market, announced today the release of PatronPorter™ for Spectrum, a conversion program that easily converts existing patron data so it can be imported into Winnebago Spectrum®.

"We currently offer PatronPorter for our Athena™ program," said Gail Mazure, PatronPorter Product Manager, "so we're excited to offer this time-saving program for Spectrum users as well. PatronPorter reduces the amount of time librarians spend entering new students into the library database because it makes it easy to import existing patron records into Spectrum. It transforms the hassle of managing new patron records into a fast and convenient process."

PatronPorter converts patron record files from existing databases, such as school administration, food service and transportation systems, into a Spectrum-compatible file that can be directly imported. Duplication of patron records is eliminated and the library database is kept current and consistent with up-to-date patron information. PatronPorter settings are customizable, so specific portions of the existing patron records can be selected for import.
