An organisation may have an identity management system to simplify the maintenance of user identities but a person’s details may still need to be entered separately into other systems. Borrower data available elsewhere is often added to the library management system either manually or using a script.
The Identity Management module synchronises your LMS with your existing identity management system in real time. It is most commonly used to update the borrower data on the LMS but data can be exported from the LMS if required. The benefits it delivers include:
- Instant access to the library for new members and visitors
- An end to manual input, saving staff time
- Improved data quality and accuracy
