Patron Mobile Checkout
Increase circulation at your library by having patrons check out items themselves, via their own Smartphone. A whopping 79% of Australians now own Smartphones. Libraries need to be agile enough to harness this technology to make it easier for patrons to borrow from the collection – from anywhere in the library.
The FE Technologies Patron Mobile Checkout is an application that is downloaded via the App Store or GooglePlay. It allows patrons with any
Smartphone to borrow items from the library and does not require NFC (RFID) functionality from the Smartphone.
The patron simply logs in once using their Library Membership credentials and then scans the barcode of the item they wish to borrow with their phone. The item is automatically checked out and the patron can leave the library with the item without alarming the gates. With an instant browsing to borrowing process, your collection is really going to move!
