Enhanced communication channels to library users through NewGenLib

July 25, 2011

Dear Patrons:

NewGenLib Open Source enhances communication channels to your library users. Apart from generating form letters in document formats messages are sent as Text messages(SMS) and Emails. Especially in circulation functionality dispatch of the messages through these channels is instantaneous.

Email facility
The email functionality not only works with SMTP severs but also with Google mail server. This means if your organization/library does not have SMTP facility you do not have to worry. Create an email in Gmail for your library and use this facility. System as usual works with SMTP servers. Another good news is for organizations/libraries using Google Apps, you can use this facility with it.

Mobile text messages(SMS) facility
SMS functionality is available through SMS Internet gateways. If you have access to SMS Internet gateway we can help you to integrate your NewGenLib Application with the gateway. For libraries operating in India there is no additional integration necessary. The system is already configured to send SMS to your users. This facility is free. In Patron information user Phone II to store the patron’s mobile number.
