A new app to meet today’s challenges for Libraries and Consortia Now more than ever, libraries need to engage existing patrons and reach new users where they are. The new Innovative Mobile app offers patrons convenience, with a modern interface that’s customized for your library and, if needed, for your entire network.
Offers Self-Check and Contactless Pick Up to keep you safe
With a focus on safety and contactless service, Innovative Mobile simplifies receiving online payments and provides low-cost patron self-service options, including a digital library card and a self-check via barcode or RFID. In addition, a “Curbside Pickup” option is available for patrons to reserve items in the app and be notified when it’s time to pick up, and an “I’m Here” option to alert the library the patron is ready for pickup curbside.
Quick and easy set up, configure in a matter of weeks
Innovative Mobile works with Sierra and Polaris public libraries and consortia today (iOS and Andriod). In addition to an implementation process that can be completed in weeks, the built-in features mean a better experience once it’s live. Patrons can use linked accounts to manage accounts for their whole family, and patrons can pay their fines through the app using your library’s current fine payment service.
Customized to look like your library, and built for your patrons
Innovative Mobile is your app – customized with each library’s logo, colors, even layout. The exciting part is that patrons can customize their experience as well, deciding if they want left to right or up and down scrolling, and 20 languages for the best possible experience.
