Circulation Assistants

The Circulation Assistant software overlays a small screen over the ILS screen and the toggling between issues and returns is automatic. When the Library Management System is changed from check in to checkout, the Circulation Assistant automatically synchronizes with the Library Management System and visually identifies the change of status. It even deals with exceptions so you don’t lose the efficiencies of the multiple item processing.

Powerful tool that allow you convert any existing library computer into a RFID enabled staff station.

Tag Encoding
The Circulation Assistant comes complete with an Encode Tag mode to provide a powerful addition that helps you with previously time-consuming cataloguing. Set management is also inbuilt allowing you to do more with less.
Tag Info Viewer
The Tag Info Viewer allows your team to quickly and easily pull up the key data so they have everything they need at their fingertips. Just what you need when you want to make things run that little bit smoother.
Sort Assistant Switch
Using the Sort Assistant and the Circulation Assistant on the same staff station? Switch between the two effortlessly and make optimal use of the RFID reader with the minimum of effort.
Shielded Antennas
A shielded antenna only reads items placed directly on top of it and prevents unintentional readings from other items. This improves accuracy, repeatability and overall efficiency. While Compact Antenna is not shielded it is much smaller and designed to only process a single tag. This makes it ideal for quick and easy cataloguing.
Synchronization Methods
FE Technologies can also provide you with an intelligent range of options to ensure seamless synchronization when switching between workflows. This can be achieved via a Chrome/Firefox/Edge Plugin, ILS API, Window titles, shortcut keys or manually. Ideal when you need to guarantee AFI security integrity on all RFID Tags.
Multiple Item Processing
Multiple item processing is the smart way to reduce manual handling and increases customer satisfaction with a single smart addition to your setup. Perfect for making optimal use of your resources and making sure your patrons are never left waiting.
Security Settings
Security settings can be readily customized from a range of settings: secured, unsecured or unchanged, giving you the flexibility that makes all the difference. This can be done for each and every ILS mode used in the library, allowing any workflow to progress seamlessly.
Integration Options
We offer three methods of integration so you can easily combine the RFID Pad and with your Library ILS. Choose from a traditional keyboard wedge, an ILS-defined API, or a dedicated Chrome/Firefox/Edge Extension (ideal for your web-based ILS). Perfect when you want to have options when it comes to giving your librarians a taste of the future.
Managing ILS Pop-Ups
Most ILS trap reservations and transits in workflows using a pop-up window. The problem is that when processing multiple items these pop-ups are lost and you will be forced to revert to time-intensive single item processing. Our unique “pop-up freeze” allows your staff to do the job with speed and precision without having to resort to manual workarounds that slow them down.
