Leading in a New Reality

The pandemic has accelerated the opportunity and the need to completely rethink our services and to lead in a new reality. Libraries are changing to meet the new 21st century audience expectations, to showcase stock, resources and content and to ensure they remain relevant in a digital world.

More and more of our customers want to self-serve via their smartphones which means your library app must deliver a stellar customer service in this way. Modern communication and social media means people expect great access and customer service around the clock. You now have an amazing opportunity to engage with customers and keep them happy 24/7 via the SOLUS app.
