Good Job, PrimaSoft

We have a small non-profit organization with a library of about 1250 items - books, magazines and videos. I was able to completely customize Handy Library Manger to our simplified needs. Check Out and Check In require only one or two scans of the barcodes. It doesn't seem to mind if you start with the borrower or the library item. Entry of new borrowers or library items can be done individually or in groups from an Excel spreadsheet. Managing the loans also seems easy, with the option to create personalized reminder emails. And if a change gets made in the item title (like correcting a typo) while the book is checked out, the changed name can still be found by the Check In process.

Drawbacks:

It has been somewhat of a challenge getting the software personalized for our club, but we got it done. There is a very complex Operating Manual t... Read more

I simply love the Handy Library Manager. Right from the beginning, when I first started to search online for a; Simple, Efficient, Accurate, Reliable and Cost Effective management program, I have been super impressed and happy with my decision to purchase this software. The Handy Library Manager is a compact and streamlined managing system which is easy to navigate and simple to use. The added HELP Tab directs you straight to the problem or issue you are facing and clearly ( with clear diagrams) helps you to work through your problems or issues or questions you may have. Additionally, the tutorial HELP is so quick and easy to learn that you will find yourself mastering the program within minutes. I love it! It has helped me to start our community library without a huge cost or investment in software that you would need a Technology degree to use. The Handy Library Manager has been the starting point of our community Library and 4 years later I am still happy with my choice to press BUY online.

Drawbacks:

As a small community Library, I feel that there is very little to change or add in the program as it suits what we want.

Summary:

Our experience with the Handy Library Manager is that the software actually promoted our community Library to become known as "very professional". ... Read more

Very easy to learn the features and options and integrate them into our needs. The processes are very intuitive and the on-line documentation usually provides several options for completing a task. Support from the vendor has been excellent when needed but was really only sought on a few occasions when we installed "Handy" and went through our initial loads and conversion. Our needs were modest and we got a lot more product for the money with PrimaSoft. Release upgrades have integrated very smoothly and added some new complimentary features. Hats off to Marek, Andre' and the entire staff.

Drawbacks:

Nothing stands out as a weakness or least liked. There are so many strong points for our small club library that currently serves approx 250 member... Read more
