Demco, Inc. announced the launch of Demco Software, a new division that offers mobile apps, programming resources, and management tools to help 21st-century libraries better engage their communities. Demco Software unites Evanced room, event and reading program management tools with Boopsie mobile apps, integrating these solutions in one place, not offered anywhere else.
Demco Software helps libraries:
- Engage their community by empowering people to interact with the library in new ways. For instance, Demco Software’s Wandoo Reader is a summer reading management tool that motivates readers with a game-like experience and BrainHQ helps adults fight the signs of aging using brain fitness exercises.
- Manage events and spaces with D!BS, Spaces and SignUp, software that offers patrons a streamlined approach to registering for programs and reserving library rooms.
- Go mobile by launching a Boopsie app that connects with users where they are — on smartphones and mobile devices.
Demco Software is also focused on uncovering and sharing library software trends and best practices. As part of its launch, the new division is sponsoring a study that will delve into how reading recommendations are leveraged by librarians to enhance patron engagement. Early in January 2017, Demco Software began collaborating with librarians to develop a survey that will cover areas of most interest to those working in public, academic (4-year and 2-year institutions), school (K-12), and special libraries.
