Fujitsu launches SaaS offering for library administration

Provides functions needed to administer a library over the Internet

By CBR Staff Writer

Fujitsu has launched its new software as a service (SaaS)-based offering for library administration aimed at municipal public libraries throughout Japan.

The company said that its SaaS-based offering, WebiLis, provides the functions needed to administer a library over the Internet, from Fujitsu’s datacentres.

Libraries can quickly and inexpensively deploy an ICT system environment for managing book lending, processing returns, processing reservation requests, and adding materials to catalogs.

Fujitsu said that the use of community functions in the system enables information exchanges and knowledge sharing, both within the same library and with other municipal libraries throughout Japan that utilise the system.

With this service, the operational and maintenance work of a library’s ICT system is handled by datacentre specialists.

The company estimates that subscribing to this service will save libraries approximately 30% on their ICT costs over five years.
