Atlas Systems’ Staff Changes Strengthen Product Development and Training

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – June 18, 2012 – Atlas Systems, the leading provider of time-saving solutions for libraries, announced that two members of the leadership team will assume additional responsibilities to focus activities more directly on product management and customer training. Stephanie Spires has been promoted to the new position of director of training and library solutions, reporting directly to Atlas president M. Jason Glover. Genie Powell, chief customer officer, will take on the added role of product owner for all Atlas products.

“As our company has continued to grow, the role of training and library solutions has become increasingly important as we look for new ways to better meet the needs of our customers,” said Glover. “Stephanie is a proven leader who understands the challenges our customers face. In her expanded role she will continue the work she has been doing for the past three years to develop consulting services and a training curriculum to help our customers respond to those challenges.”

Commenting on the combination of all product owner roles, Glover said, “Atlas’ mission is to streamline library workflow to help staff achieve greater efficiency. Working closely with our customers has increased our recognition of the need for tighter integration among ILLiad, Ares and Aeon as a way to further that mission. As product owner, Genie will work closely with the customers and development team to ensure a consistent user experience.”

Ares 4.0 Brings Greater Efficiency to E-Reserves

Enhancements include functionality familiar to ILLiad users

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – June 13, 2012 – Following successful beta tests at the University of Chicago and Northwestern University, version 4.0 of the Ares e-reserves management system is now in general release, announced Atlas Systems, the leading provider of time-saving solutions for libraries. The Ares system automates library reserve services, provides around-the-clock access to reserves collections, includes integrated copyright management services, and saves time for faculty members and library staff.

Ares 4.0 will be showcased in the Atlas Booth #2206 at the ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim. More information is available at http://www.atlas-sys.com/ares/.

Highlights of Ares 4.0 include:

• Expanded use of addons to facilitate accepting data from other systems (e.g., a library’s catalog, proprietary journal databases, Google Scholar or Amazon.com)

• Enhanced copyright functionality, including the option to go direct to the publisher/individual rights holder

• Use of flags to define item status (e.g., needs copyright processing)

• Streamlined integration with external e-learning systems (Blackboard, Moodle, Desire2Learn, Sakai)

Additionally, Ares 4.0 has been designed to mirror the look and feel of the ILLiad resource sharing management software, developed by Atlas Systems and distributed by OCLC. “We know there is a great deal of crossover between ILL and reserves staff,” said Dan Specht, Atlas chief financial officer and vice president of marketing and sales. “The changes we’ve made to Ares will make it easier for institutions to cross-train staff who use ILLiad since the look and feel of the two systems are now the same.”
