This app allows every library or mobile library to easily and securely document all checkout transactions. Never lose another book or CD because of an unknown borrower or undocumented library checkout. A quick checkout process via smartphones or tablets means that all loaned items can be remotely and securely recorded. This system is especially ideal for situations when the borrower is visiting a place, such as a clinic or hospital, and the checkout has to take place on location.

A stationary library can process checkouts and returns on a standard PC with internet connection – no special software is required.
