"Good for end user, not good for the back end users"

What do you like best?

Good for end users, but not good for back end users (the people who use it to create records). End users can see changes in the catalogue right away. Web-based program, so we are no longer server-reliant. Theoretically, can use Insignia anywhere from any computer

What do you dislike?

This program has a LOT of mousing would be so much better if they can introduce more keyboard shortcuts. I have noticed a considerable difference when we switched over to Insignia, that there are more screens to click through when creating a record. This increases overall time spent of an individual record. Importing French records continues to be an issue with the diacritics never displaying properly.

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

Web based program, less prone to down time than a server based program.

"Intuitive, easy to use library automation software"

What do you like best?

Insignia has a simple, highly customizable interface. The administrative end is easy to learn and navigate, even for someone without significant cataloging experience. The company is very responsive and support is top-notch. The price point is competitive in relation to similar software.

What do you dislike?

There is very little I dislike! I'm looking forward to seeing how the company will continue to refine options to make the interface more interactive, and to improve search and resource collection tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this system, particularly for large systems with many users that may not have the opportunity to educate their users face-to-face on the nuances of their catalog, simply because it's very easy to use.

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

This product replaced an outdated system and breathed new life into our library catalog. We are able to provide our users with a more intuitive experience, and share customized resource lists easily with wide audiences. Users can refine their searches easily to find the right resources to meet their information-seeking needs.
