Custom Development: Because our systems are open by design.
At Innovative, we want you to get the most from your technology investments. That’s why we lead the industry in open system design.
To ensure our open systems effectively complement your technology stack, we provide a robust collection of APIs and custom development services.
About Our Development Services
When You Need Support from Expert Developers, Innovative is Here for You
We work with libraries of every nature—from libraries that benefit from full-service support to libraries that appreciate simple consulting and assistance.
Our custom development services include consulting, solution design, and programming, as well as everything you need for a turnkey project: UI and database design, project management and reporting, software documentation, testing for quality assurance, and assistance for your team.
 
Product Integration
Our team will work with you to create one comprehensive solution, ensuring your Polaris or Sierra system is truly integrated and extensible with other products on the market today—regardless of the vendor.
Examples of products you may want to integrate include discovery tools, student information systems, external accounting systems, electronic resource management (ERM), courseware, digital asset management, and storage and retrieval.
 
Custom Applications
Innovative offers custom application development for mobile apps, desktop applications, and web-based applications to support your library’s brand and strategic vision.
Custom integrations and applications can be developed in the languages and platforms you currently use for other library automation needs. Supported platforms include PHP, HTML5, Java, Python, and Objective-C.
 
About Our APIs
APIs help libraries maximize their use of our ILS platforms. They enable customers to integrate their ILS systems with existing technology ecosystems, interact with existing data, work across disparate systems, and tailor our solutions to support their unique needs and workflows.
