"Makes book ordering for the library easy as 123"

What do you like best?

I love love LOVE how easily I can make a book order of over 1,000 books and that my lists from past years save! Each school I had to order new books for the library. Once in the Fall and another in the Spring. I was able to title my lists by school year as well. Once I had enough lists generated over the school years I noticed that there were color coded tags warning me whether I had the same title already saved in my current list or previous list. It also made it simple for me to reorder the same book titles. I also discovered many authors through Follet Titlewave while creating my list of books for my order that school year.

What do you dislike?

There wasn't too much I disliked about Follet. If there is something that they could improve on would be the way we seek help through the website. Perhaps having a live agent available would be great. some of those book lists literally take days to generate and our directors aren't always available to help. So if we could already have any restrictions available based on our grade levels or even campus policies that'd be amazing. I accidentally order a book that was not accepted by our district and a students parent complained. So a warning or alert on the website would be great because the reading level was considered for MG (Middle Grades) but not all students are ready for certain content in those grades.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend being very organized when it comes to creating different lists on your account. Specially if you have to share the same account for your campus with different teacher and administrators. You can always edit the lists but it would make your life much simpler if you have a clean neat start. Be careful when filtering as well. FolletBound is almost always the same as Hardcover but the pricing is less. There are so many filters that you sometimes lose the chance of saving a couple of bucks when you make small mistakes such as that one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Book ordering for Libraries district wide and orders for textbooks as well. Most of the titles can easily be reserved if they aren't out and you can submit and forget then remember only once your order arrives. Having that as an option when purchasing is amazing. Reordering is simple as well because you can generate a new list of books by copying an older one. Making my work faster by splitting the time in half.

"Destiny Catalog from a Technology Teacher"

What do you like best?

I loved how easy the Destiny program was to learn. I'm a Technology teacher, so I didn't use the program every day, but the daily functions such as checking out books were very easy for me to learn to help the librarians when they were swamped or out of the building.

What do you dislike?

When it's time for inventory, there are often freezes. I'm not sure if it's due to the program, or the wireless scanner, or even the computer system/network, but it's VERY frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The Destiny system is great for cataloging and organizing large libraries. I'm not sure if there really is a "Perfect" system when dealing with that many books, but Destiny is a better resource than many.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's so easy to keep track of books, locations, checkout and search resources for teachers.

"Desitny Review"

What do you like best?

Since Destiny was implemented several years ago in our district, the daily management of our text/digital resources has increased to excellent levels. With limited budgets a reality in our district as it is in most, it became vital to increase site level accountability over these resources. This product does an excellent job of not only tracking where these resources are, but also allows for greater identification and sharing of these resources throughout the district.

What do you dislike?

One of the big drawbacks in my organization is the lack of full scanning functionality across ALL mobile devices. Currently they only support iPhone models (3GS/4/4S) and iPad3 or higher. Scanning is not supported on Android devices or other Apple devices. Given the ubiquitous nature of smart devices and the distributed structure of resource management needs supported by this type of software, it seems obvious that this would need to be addressed for full saturation through an organization.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your organization requires a solid tool that provides easy management of resources then I would say this is a really good option. The amount of resource loss alone makes this type of tool incredibly important.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use the product for a variety of purposes, however, the management and circulation of books is probably the largest feature used on a daily basis. Destiny provides easy tracking and management of resources being checked in and out and increased the efficiency of communicating to students and parents anytime
