Innovative announced today that Polaris Leap - the responsive-design Web client that performs key library workflows on tablets and laptops - has now been selected by 100 institutions representing more than 1,200 libraries. Polaris Leap went live at most of these libraries over the last 6 months, resulting in successful experiences for tasks inside and outside library walls and proving that the future of Polaris Leap is here now. Just a few of the libraries that have chosen Polaris Leap are Denver Public Library (CO), Fort Worth Library (TX), Illinois Heartland Library System (IL), New Orleans Public Library (LA), Ontario City Library (CA), Phoenix Public Library (AZ), Salt Lake City Public Library (UT), and Sno-Isle Libraries (WA).
Davenport Public Library (IA) Director Amy Groskopf says: “Polaris Leap got our staff excited when they saw that it does what they need and is easy to use. When we are doing outreach, Leap makes it more convenient for patrons as well. If they have a block on their account for some reason, we can resolve it immediately. With Leap, we have a more immediate impact because we can do something for them right then and there.” For more of Davenport Public Library's use of Polaris Leap see the recent case study: Davenport Public Library: Exceeding Expectations beyond Library Walls with Polaris Leap.
"Innovative views Polaris Leap, with its intuitive interface and powerful functionality, as the future for the Polaris product line,” says Bill Schickling, SVP of Global Sales. “We are continuing to explore ways to make the library more personalized and inviting through better discovery, mobile access, and the consistent, consolidated vision of the Open Library Experience."
