When Sally arrived at Shiplake College she found the existing system irritating to use because it was 'clunky'. Students and teachers also found it difficult to use. Sally didn't want to pay for training for a system she already didn't like.
Sally did her research and found Simple Little Library System on the School Library Association website. She took up a 30 day trial which gave her time to review the software. Students and teachers found it easy to use.
Sally found that SLLS had an ‘iPad’ feel and it was easy to work out what you needed to do. She also found that she didn’t have to pay for expensive training because Bailey Solutions supplies free help videos and the support team respond within half an hour to her support requests.
Shiplake College’s Bursar was pleased because the software is very affordable. Compared to their spend with the existing system supplier, the college could save money to spend on other resources. Shiplake College chose to pay monthly, easing cash flow, and only one month’s notice is required to cancel after the first year.
