School of Arts and Cultures
As a growing department, keeping up with student and staff loan demands and managing room bookings over two systems was causing a large resource strain. Connect2 has very much helped with staff tasks and empowered students to look after their own bookings, as well as incentivise students to progress through inductions to gain access to higher end equipment. With a quick introduction, all users are up to speed and enjoying using the system.
Service Development Librarian,
Nottingham City Libraries
I can think of no other company in my 37 working years which it has been such a pleasure to work with. Your "can-do" attitude plus your extremely well-trained and knowledgeable staff have always been, and will continue to be, your best assets.
ITS Media Team
Our students are benefiting from the ability to login to our system and make their own bookings without the need for staff assistance. Not only does this make it more convenient for students, but staff are able to get on with helping students use the equipment, rather than spending their time making and following up bookings.
Information and Systems, Nottinghamshire County Council
The solution that was developed to enable libraries to offer public access to computers, including the use of Netloan, has proven so successful that it has been used as the default model for other parts of the council who need to provide computer access to members of the public
Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture
Connect2 has helped our students to be more proactive in their equipment bookings, and has enabled them to complete briefs and projects, in a way that was impossible on our old 'custom built' system. The whole usage of the loans room is now transparent, with reduced queuing times, more equipment in rotation, and with the ability to book remotely and instantly. We feel the whole resource is now being maximised to its full potential, also helping staff to plan well in advance, and check the availability of kit at our most busy/peak times.
Netloan is, as ever a reliable system. It is probably the most reliable of all our systems; certainly the one that gives me the least headaches anyway.
Technical Support Officer,
The Glasgow School of Art
Connect2 gives us the ability to track equipment and run reports to justify new developments and purchases. Students and staff can book equipment from anywhere at anytime of the day. With connect2 we are able to tier access while providing transparency of all resources available to students and staff.
South Northamptonshire Council
Lorensbergs provided good analysis of what was needed. They were adaptive and responsive to queries. They wanted to know how processes worked and came back with ideas.
