Comments: I have been director of my library for 10 1/2 years having worked with the good people at Evolve the entire time. The customer service is second to none. It is not unusual to call customer service and have a conversation with the president of the company. The product is very easy to use. Training is always offered to help new users become familiar with the product. My library is not a large system with only one building. Evolve takes care of all of our needs. Evolve is continually evolving to meet the ever-changing world of libraries.

Comments: Evolve is a customer-focused, easy-to-use integrated library system. As a small library, we do not have the luxury of a support staff so we opted to have Evolve manage our server. They are always very responsive when problems arise and offer creative solutions. When I asked them to rearrange our reserve print slips to print vertically, they completed the task by the following day.
Our library serves an older population that needs a good basic product. Evolve delivers a screen that is easy to read and well laid out. My only complaint has been occasional issues in the way the request system functions, sometimes causing odd results in the queue.
Good ILS for a reasonable cost.

Comments: For over ten years we have enjoyed an exceptionally synergistic relationship with the Infovision staff and love the Evolve ILS. Using the latest technology, Evolve is streamlined and simple to use, providing us with the options we need and desire. The staff are always respectful, prompt in responding to requests, and a joy to work with. As a customer, we have enjoyed being listened to and have appreciated the efforts of the Infovision staff to customize our Evolve installation so that it works for us.

Transition was fairly smooth; training was easily understood; help was readily available.

Comments: Albany Community Library, a small, volunteer-operated, donation/grant-supported library, recently converted our circulation/cataloguing software from a system that was obsolete to Evolve from Infovision. This was my third software change as either a school librarian or member of my community library board. This was definitely the smoothest and easiest transition and that is a tribute to the staff and support from Infovision.

Bruce Elliott was quick and efficient in handling the business end of the process. David Elliott was patient, helpful and available at various times of the day and day of the week as we went through the extractions, crashing of our main computer, and setting up things as we wanted them. As we have begun using the program and learning, we have had many questions and Melissa and Trenton have been extremely helpful and patient. Sometimes we aren┬┐t even sure what our question is but they know the software and anticipate our questions and give the help needed.

Being able to talk to a real person, when needed, is great. Emails have been answered in a timely manner and phone calls have been made when that is a better response. Knowing that help is just a phone call or email away gives me confidence as we go forward with this adventure.

Evolve was recommended to me by another librarian in Indiana and I would recommend it to any other library needing to make a change.

Comments: Anytime I call Infovision with a question, I always get to talk to a "live" person, almost immediately and the issue is always addressed and fixed in a timely manner. I certainly don't get the level of customer service that I get with Infovision with most other companies that I deal with.

Good product for small to medium sized library

Comments: We have been using Evolve for about 9 months. We downloaded all our records from Library World into Evolve. We have two branches in one program.
The best thing about Evolve is the versatility. You have so many options, you simply request how you want it set up and they do it.
Circulation is very complete with all the expected functions. Cataloging could be better, it is a little bulky, and takes a little getting used to, but then it is easy.
The reports are versatile and thorough, it does so much more than had before. Track number of books in each category by date, circulation by branch and category. Too much to go into here.
Our patrons love the OPAC system, they can renew and reserve at home, as well as check reading history and search the catalog.
Every problem we have encountered has been addressed quickly and solved. I highly recommend this program
