2020 PTFS Europe Accomplishments Narrative
The volume of new Koha installations continues to grow across all sectors - academic, public, special and government. We continue to migrate systems from all the major suppliers active in the UK further leading to our sales success. The size of organisations chosing Koha for their libraries varies from niche special libraries with just 2 or 3 librarians to a county-wide public authority with over 60 branches.
Metabase business analytics has shown increased adoption in 2020 with 5 new installations and more in the pipeline for early 2021.
Implementation projects started and continued right through the Covid19 pandemic lockdowns here in the UK and both the libraries and our implementation staff adapted well to progressing all projects on time in the virtual working context.
The partnership with EBSCO around the installation and support of the FOLIO open source Library Management Platform has strengthened in 2020 with the opportunity to take part in several RFI and tender processes.
We continue strongly as the only significant support company in the UK with a specialism in implementing open source solutions.
