We’ve helped over a thousand libraries in the UK and worldwide
Librarian, Wales, UK
"It is easy to navigate, and needs to be because I am getting on and not an IT whizz! If I can use it, anyone can. I am so glad that I chose this system because it really does make light work of running the library."
Thinking Space Manager, UK
"SLLS has an ‘iPad’ feel and it is easy to work out what you need to do. I found that I 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 my support requests."
"The data conversion team was amazing! There are natural fears with converting a collection of 7000+ books, but a couple emails and online meetings and the plan was in place. All the books were converted directly to their new “home”, saving me months of work. We worked together to make sure everything went smoothly, and all my questions were answered as we went along."
"Since rolling out SLLS to students in April we have had a fantastic response. Students are finding it much more user friendly and my library team have found it so much easier to navigate, so all around we are big fans!"
ICT Network Manager, Parsloes School, UK
"This has has been a fantastic experience especially when there is no dedicated librarian. The kids love it as they can browse for, return and reserve books on their iPads anywhere in the school. This is the simplest library system I have used. Easy to setup, easy to configure and easy to manage. We were looking for a flexible system that adapts to the needs of our school and we found it."
Manager - Knowledge Services, Canada
"SLLS has both the 'wow' factor and ease of use I've been looking for. As the firm's solo librarian, I was able to design and roll-out a sleek library catalogue without having to bog down our internal IT. SLLS provides lots of flexibility and online tech support, as well as an incredibly responsive live support team. Lawyers are impressed with the search functionality, quickly navigating to previously difficult to find subscription-based digital resources. This has saved time and increased resource use, allowing the firm to maximize the value of expensive print and online tools."
Librarian, Tarragal Glen Library, NSW, Australia
"As a small retirement Village Library, we had some doubts about going digital but we need not have worried. Implementing the system was surprisingly easy despite having 2,500 books to put the unique bar codes on. The Technical support has been excellent with no question too simple or difficult and a very quick response. We recommend SLLS for anyone thinking about it the free trial convinced us as it enabled us to see if we were capable of implementing a digital library."
Library Officer, Sackers, UK
"We migrated to SLLS last year. The transition was smooth and we had a good response to the few ‘tweaks’ needed. The new product is very clear and well laid out, so training lawyers is easy. The check-in/check-out facility works well. The Admin function is also pretty clear – and where it isn’t, a call or email to Bailey’s is answered promptly. I have also used the short training videos and they are clear and useful."
Knowledge & Information Administrator, UK
"I cannot stress enough how easy SLLS is to use, and how much the online cloud system benefited us. There were so many benefits to us changing/updating to a new system."
Library & Learning System Management Officer, UK
"I really like SLLS. The look and feel is very smart and clean. I like all the extra flexibility and functionality and the layout of the admin areas. The new features like the ability to attach pdfs of invoices and the AutoCat tool are going to make my life easier. The home page is far more attractive and helpful with the new additions, announcements etc."
Information Manager, UK
"They tailor to your needs and make sure everything is perfect for you. Customer service and support is excellent. Training is good as well. The videos are excellent. I certainly recommend this software to any organisation who has a library. I have used many in my time, this one certainly reaches the top of my list."
"We picked SLLS for our Community Hub and Library rather than a much larger rival. SLLS ticked all the requirement boxes we needed, is fully cloud based which was an essential and was reasonably priced. What we were not expecting was the excellent post-sale support, plus the willingness and speed with which Bailey were able to respond to requests for changes. This feels like a company that looks after their customers"
"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."
"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."
"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."
