Our migration portal is live! The portal is in its early stages now, as is our project. As we have more information to share, we will pull it all together at learning.ccslib.org.
Because it will contain proprietary information from our vendor, it is password protected.
The migration portal will contain:
and other migration related resources. Content will be added as our project develops. Send us your suggestions for content and other feedback.
- Archives of these emails
- Training calendar and registration
- Documentation and training videos
- Project schedules and information
- FAQ (send your questions to email@example.com)
Contract negotiations continue. Our contract will cover everything from the security Innovative provides in our hosted environment to the number of days of training we'll receive to the language options we'll see in our OPAC, not to mention the cost for all of these pieces.
Because it is such a vital part of our organization, we want to ensure we give the process the time and attention it needs. We are all eager to get to work on the project itself, and I appreciate your patience as we finalize this important element.
eCommerce Integration Call and Survey
On our March 3 call with Polaris, we learned:
- Comprise and Envisonware are both integrated with Polaris and PowerPac
- Neither is integrated today with Leap, the web client
- Leap integration with at least one of those vendors is expected by the end of this calendar year
We can help influence which of those vendors will be integrated with Leap first, and/or if another vendor should be considered. Share your current eCommerce setup with us by March 13.
Becase credit card payment integration will be included in our Polaris contract for all libraries, we do not need to decide which vendor to select at this time. Or even if all libraries will use the same vendor as is the case now.
Our next step in this part of the process will be to set up informational calls with both Comprise and Envisionware so we can learn more about their products and fees. As is the case with our current vendor, libraries will incur fees from the third party they select to process those payments, and there will be no additional fees from Polaris.
Share your current eCommerce setup with us by March 13.
