"Excellent Customer Online Support"

Pluspunten: To begin with, I just admire the customer support round the clock that they give. It's so hard to get stuck that for instance, you have to wait on their working hours, no! They got my needs.
Cataloging is so superb and one can be in control of the software by navigating across panes easily.

Minpunten: I have not seen any cons yet, I have been using it for trial and I loved it.

"Alexandria is the BEST library circulation system EVER!"

Opmerkingen: I used Follett's Destiny, in another school district, and I also have many years experience working in public libraries. I have to say that I much prefer Alexandria to Destiny. I wasn't a fan of Destiny. I didn't like the small fonts used, and in a lot of ways it wasn't customer friendly. It is as good, if not better than circulation programs I've used in public libraries. The thing I really appreciate about Alexandria, other than the fact that it is a great system, is their AMAZING tech support! When I've needed something, they've helped me every step of the way. They have assisted me many times, and have gone above and beyond to make sure that I'm successful using Alexandria.

Pluspunten: Everything on Alexandria is very quick, and it is so easy to use. The size of the fonts for names/titles when checking students' books out, and checking them in is large, so reading glasses aren't needed. Multiple reports are available, and you can also import/export when downloading new students' info, which means it takes only minutes to add new classes to the system, instead of typing in information. Additionally, I love that the scanning of titles and student barcodes is so fast. Everything scans the first time in a nano second!

Minpunten: Nothing at all! It is a great system and I can't think of anything I'd suggest be changed.

"Alexandria: User Friendly and Great Customer Service"

Opmerkingen: i have been using Alexandria for five years and love that it is easy for me and the students to use. Their customer service is excellent and always friendly.

Pluspunten: I like that the features are user friendly and that there are constant updates from the company to ensure ease of use.

Minpunten: I only wish they would make the books display a bit bigger so that students could have a better look at the cover.

"Choose Carefully"

Opmerkingen: This software has been in use in my district for many years. Overall, since it is cheap, it was the one we decided on and we drank the kool-aid in believing that the company would go above and beyond to help us.
Unfortunately, customer service is not always helpful and the support people know little to nothing about .mrc records.
Somewhat disappointing when you compare it to the big companies.

"Alexandria library software for our High School"

Opmerkingen: Recently we added classroom collections of all of our English department teachers. This should have been done as the books were added over the years, but it was not. Our teachers were quite reluctant to have to learn new software and all, but now that it's done they think it's pretty slick! They love that they can find a title in another classroom if they don't have a copy themselves.

Pluspunten: Alexandria offers so many things. It's a great way to organize our collection and know immediately whether we have an item, where it is, and whether it's available. I can fine-tune reports so I can zero in on exactly what I need to know. I can personalize fields and settings, and I can set permissions to restrict how much information others in our building can access or edit. Tech support is top notch! They address my questions and concerns with clarity and with respect, even when I feel I may have a silly question. I've learned much about Alexandria by calling tech support with a few questions and then hearing them explain a better way to do what I'm trying to do.

Minpunten: Maybe a con is that Alexandria is capable of doing so much that I am not even aware of.
