Our reporting tools will let you track borrowers’ habits and keep on top of auditing your collection. What’s more, there are no set-up costs and no limitations on the number of library users. It’s a great system that gives you the flexibility to grow.

"We ended up with a brilliantly simple, user friendly, logical system that is adaptable to any end user. The system is fun to use and the students love the fact that they can communicate with the library - I love the fact that it automatically reminds them of their overdue books.  Simple little things that make a librarian’s life so much easier."

"We moved from a large, corporate-driven management system, focused on selling you further products. The difference in SLLS is having very similar product without the commercialism and it has cost saving benefits. We love its simplicity, with the ability to carry out tasks in a straightforward, logical way."

Robin Stewart, Librarian

The Teresian School, Ireland 

"Very easy to use, hassle-free interaction with responsive, informed, friendly customer support, suits needs of the library perfectly, good degree of reportage functionality and right level of student engagement capability. Much less expensive than closest competitors but has full range of capability and functionality they offer."
