October 9, 2014

NGL takes your library from digital age to SmartPhone age. NGL Introduces two new smartphone applications to accelerate your circulation transactions. Deliver maximum user satisfaction with no additional costs or infrastructure. Welcome to NGL Version 3.0.4 R3 U1.

What’s new in this version ?

Makeshift Circulation Desk (MSCD)

  • Add new circulation counters with no extra cost on infrastructure: You can use your existing smartphone/tablet to perform check in & check out transactions thus creating temporary circulation desks
  • MSCD helps you to reduces user traffic at circulation desk during peak circulation hours
  • Password and IP authentication available to facilitate secured transactions
  • Circulation statistics reports are added in NGL Desktop to get peak hour/day/month timings
  • Works with any SmartPhone (Android, IPhone, Blackberry, Windows)

 

Self Check-Ins & Check-Outs

  • Users can Check-out and Check-in their books using their SmartPhones. Every user’s Smartphone becomes his/her own circulation desk
  • Application does not compromise on Security: Transactions can be executed only inside the library premises. Works in perfect integration with NGL Counter.
  • Librarian can disable/enable Self Check-Outs and Check-Ins on a single click from the librarian interface
  • QR Code based advertising material to help users open the application using their SmartPhone cameras
  • Works with any SmartPhone (Android, IPhone, Blackberry, Windows)

 

As part of our promise to the NGL community all the above updates are open source and free to use. NGL Team’s primary objective is to deliver state-of-the-art services to your users.
